‘North Korea, The Glaring Setback In Mr. Obama’s Asia Policy,’ Conducts Its Second Nuclear Test Of 2016
‘North Korea Defiantly Celebrated Its Fifth Nuclear Test’
“North Korea is ready to conduct an additional nuclear test at any time, South Korea's Defense Ministry said on Monday, three days after the reclusive North's fifth test drew widespread condemnation. . . As tensions rose on the Korean peninsula in the week of last week's test, South Korea's President Park Geun-hye said that North Korea's nuclear weapons and missiles posed an ‘imminent threat.’”(“North Korea Ready For Another Nuclear Test Any Time: South Korea,” Reuters, 9/12/2016)
‘The Threat From Pyongyang Has Grown During Mr. Obama’s Presidency’
“Coming after a series of increasingly advanced missile tests . . . [the latest nuclear test] has ratcheted up the alarm that the regime may in fact be able to deliver a nuclear weapon, as it has repeatedly threatened. . . James Acton, a nuclear expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace [said] ‘If [North Korea] cannot yet threaten its neighbors, it will be able to soon. And it will eventually be able to strike the United States.’”(“Obama Under Fire After North Korean Nuke Test,” Politico, 9/09/2016)
“North Korea fired three ballistic missiles into the sea off its east coast . . . as the leaders of the Group of 20 major economies held a summit in China, the North's main diplomatic ally. . . The missile launches were the latest in a series by the isolated North this year in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions, supported by China, that ban all ballistic missile-related activities by the North.” (“North Korea Fires Three Ballistic Missiles As G20 Leaders Meet In China,” Reuters, 9/05/2016)
“North Korea appears to have reopened a plant to produce plutonium from spent fuel of a reactor central to its atomic weapons drive, the U.N. nuclear watchdog said on Monday, suggesting the country's arms effort is widening. Pyongyang vowed in 2013 to restart all nuclear facilities, including the main reactor at its Yongbyon site that had been shut down and has been at the heart of its weapons program.” (“North Korea Apparently Reopened Plant To Produce Plutonium: IAEA,” Reuters, 6/06/2016)
