North Korea Conducts Mass Evacuation and Blackout Drills

He stated that in light of the threats from dictator Kim Jong Un, the United States would not accept a nuclearized North Korea. The North Korea delegation was headed by Lee Doh Sik, director of the Geological Research Institute at the State Academy of Sciences, it said.

North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear test in September sparked global concerns over the rogue nation's fast developing weapons program and fueled allies' talks to strengthen the rotational deployment of United States strategic assets here.

"Today's sanctions target the North Korean military and regime officials engaged in flagrant abuses of human rights", Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement. They have mainly been conducted in smaller cities, with a focus on the east coast.

The US also "runs the risk of a direct military clash with China", as occurred during the Korean War of 1950-1953, CRS said.

Most recently US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis warned any attack on the United States or its allies would be met with a massive military response "that is effective and overwhelming".

South Korea's Defense Minister Song Young-moo and his US counterpart James Mattis issued the warning on Saturday in a joint news conference held after the bilateral Security Consultative Meeting in Seoul.

The U.S. and North Korea have been enemies for over half a century, but tensions have been particularly high in recent months as Pyongyang has ramped up its long-range missile tests and refused to give into global pressure to end its nuclear program. South Korean President Moon Jae-in said that USA military help in the region has been effective in deterring aggression from the North Korean regime.

Trump is scheduled to visit South Korea as part of a tour through several Asian nations starting next week.

The White House explained part of the goal of the trip in a statement.
