Negotiators mum on details of summit talks

K-Pop stars brought a message of unity- but some diplomats didn't get the memo

North Korea is "almost certain" to have ballistic missiles within six to 18 months that can reach the UK, MPs have warned.

Officials from North and South Korea met on Thursday (April 4) to discuss the logistics of a rare summit later this month, which will see Kim Jong Un become the first North Korean leader to set foot in the South since the end of the Korean War.

U.K.'s defence committee published its North Korea threat assessment Thursday, outlining the threat Kim Jong Un's regime poses for Britain.

South Korean officials have said the summit will focus on North Korea's nuclear disarmament, although the North hasn't confirmed this through its state-run media.

The report, Rash or Rational?

These aren't simply buffs for the weapons, as damage falloff-the distance at which their damage is reduced-has also been altered. The locations are now spread out all over the island map and can be accessed on both the interior and shoreline of the island.

Pyongyang tested successful intercontinental ballistic missiles previous year; the next step is attaching them with a nuclear warhead.

"A nuclear strike capability depends on marrying up the ballistic missile with the warhead, and that is, we judge, work in progress", Howe said.

"In any case, it is nearly certain to be able to do so within the next six to 18 months if it continues its programme at the current rate of development".

Chinese President Xi Jinping gave North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his wife Ri Sol-ju at least 2.47 million yuan or W415 million worth of gifts when they visited Beijing, according to Hong Kong's Apple Daily on Tuesday (US$1=W1,063).

Earlier in the day, Wang said during a joint news briefing with visiting Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis that he hoped a planned meeting in May between Kim and US President Donald Trump would "increase mutual understanding".

Osornio and other Dreamers at SIU say they are anxious about their futures following a weekend of tweets from President Trump . Trump doesn't, unless he was lying once more to create confusion and justify his callous abandonment of DACA beneficiaries.

Any use of such long-range weapons would lead to "devastating military consequences", the report said.

'He is ruthless, like other Communist dictators before him, but he is rational'.

However, they warned that despite the recent diplomatic thaw, North Korea is unlikely to abandon its weapon programme.

"The UK has only a limited ballistic missile defence (BMD) capability, however, if North Korea made a decision to launch a missile at the UK".

"If there were a conflict in the region, the United Kingdom would have no legal obligation to provide military assistance". The gifts, most of which the United Nations banned from export to the North, were worth around four hundred thousand dollars, South Korea's Chosun Ilbo reported, citing Hong Kong-based Apple Daily. "Similarly, there is a definite danger that North Korea would have few if any qualms about promoting nuclear proliferation to other states or even non-state actors".

With more snow on the horizon, region waits for warmth
Temperatures won't be that much cooler initially, but will drop into the upper 60s and low 70s across South MS by Thursday . Winds on Wendesday afternoon could gust over 50mph, which is enough to cause scattered power outages and tree limb damage.
