United States determines North Korea used chemical weapons

South Korean President Moon Jae-in talks with President of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of North Korea Kim Young Nam and Kim Yo Jong the sister of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un during their meeting at the Presidential Blue House

The Korean Central News Agency published a commentary on Saturday, noting that the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle exercises jointly held by South Korean and USA troops are set to be held next month.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in delivers a speech during a ceremony celebrating the 99th anniversary of the March First Independence Movement against Japanese colonial rule, at Seodaemun Prison History Hall in Seoul, South Korea, March 1, 2018.

The Trump administration's position is that North Korea must show a real commitment toward ending its nuclear and missile programs before any talks can take place.

The damages that would come from war with North Korea would be "worth it" over the long term, according to Sen.

The United States is also concerned that there could be a nuclear arms race in the region if North Korea becomes a full nuclear power, as Japan may also become one.

Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, also said that the United States has drawn a "red line", when it comes to North Korea.

North Korea on Thursday denied it was cooperating with Syria on chemical weapons.

It is also the only island to date with a population estimate (285,000-305,000) derived from a ground survey of the island. These also provide evidence to support the proposed Marine Protected Areas near the Antarctic Peninsula .

Pyongyang is willing to prepare for dialogue in which the two sides "discuss and resolve issues of mutual concern on an equal footing", a Foreign Ministry spokesperson was quoted as saying by the Korean Central News Agency.

On February 23, the United States said it was imposing its largest package of sanctions to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear and missile programmes.

It further said the military drills between the US and South Korea would harm reconciliation efforts and the North shall be "forced" to counter the US.

State media has also hit back at Washington, reiterating the North's long-held assertion that the U.S. used biological and chemical weapons against civilians during the Korean War.

North Korea's representative told the United Nations-sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva last month that Pyongyang stands ready to fight back against any military provocation from the United States, the North's official media reported Saturday.

Trump warned of a "phase two" that could be "very, very unfortunate for the world" if the steps did not work.

Although the Japanese intelligence is still investigating the incident, the Kim Jong Un-led North Korean regime is said to be the prime suspect.
