North Korea faces more sanctions after missile test

The test has been declared successful by Pyongyang.

Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis told reporters that North Korea's "unlawful weapons programs" were a clear and grave threat to national security. On Monday, Norm Eisen, former ethics czar for President Obama, expressed disgust on Twitter with Trump's decision to handle the North Korea situation in front of his dinner guests, and called the identification of "Rick" a "tremendous security violation". A fully developed ICBM could threaten the continental US.

North Korea made the identical claim, and said the SLBM KN-11, also known as the Pukguksong-1, or Polaris-1, was the base model for the latest launch, South Korean newspaper Hankyoreh reported Monday. Trump said that the USA "stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100 percent".

North Korea successfully test fired a ballistic missile Saturday evening that's created to launch from a submarine, USA officials told Fox News. Trump spent much of his campaign hammering opponent Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server to conduct business while she was secretary of state - something Trump said was not almost secure enough. The Musudan has a range of up to 2,500 miles.

Mr Shi Yuanhua, a Korean studies professor at Shanghai's Fudan University, said that from Pyongyang's perspective, it was a good time to launch a missile because the new United States administration had not decided what approach to take with North Korea, and Beijing was at odds with Washington and Seoul over an anti-missile system to be installed on the Korean peninsula.

Gardner also encouraged Trump to accelerate the deployment of a missile defense system to South Korea.

"We have asked China via various levels to take constructive actions as a permanent member of the UN Security Council and we will continue to work on it", Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.

The United States should impose secondary sanctions on any Chinese entity that's violating sanctions on North Korea, he added.

Geng said China, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, has been "completely and comprehensively" implementing security council resolutions on the nuclear issue.

Finally, Gardner wrote, the United States should illuminate human rights abuses in North Korea by imposing sanctions on abusers and by supporting US and global efforts to provide credible information and communication tools for the North Korean people.

South Korea's acting president and prime minister, Hwang Kyo-ahn, said his country will punish North Korea for the provocation.
