Trump to host new South Korean president at White House

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe departs the White House on Feb. 10 2017

President Donald Trump will host his newly-elected South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in in Washington later this month, the White House announced Tuesday.

Since 2008, photographer Eric Lafforgue ventured to North Korea six times.

'The DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) is about 10,400km [6,462 miles] far away from NY, ' the statement read.

"We will come up with measures to deal with North Korean drones", said an official at South Korea's Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who also declined to be identified as he is not authorized to speak to the media. "But this is just not a long distance for its strike today", an opinion piece in the state-run Rodong Sinmun stated on Monday.

The drone, according to the report, was found last week just days after North Korea test-fired a salvo of anti-ship missiles. This is because its hostile policy will end in futile when the DPRK conducts the test-fire of ICBM capable of precisely striking any place of the United States mainland.

They also agreed to beef up pressure against Pyongyang and demand China to play a more active role.

"What matters is that the present chief executive of South Korea (Moon), who caught the interest of the public for his remarks that 'he would always say no to the USA,' has now gone servile to the US", said the commentary.

Earlier that month, Pyongyang said it had successfully tested the Pukguksong-2 intermediate range ballistic missile, after a projectile was detected landing in global waters off Japan's east coast.

Trump has taken a hard line on Kim's kingdom as the tubby tyrant continues his quest for nuclear weapons - with bomb tests and missile launches.

Those tests were part of dozens of missile launches by Pyongyang since the beginning of a year ago.

Also on Monday, a report by a US-based think-tank said that the North's effort to circumvent worldwide sanctions on its nuclear and missile programmes is complex, but could be defeated by targeting relatively few Chinese firms.

In a direct response to Mr Trump's tweeting, North Korea has threatened that its weapons could soon be fired on the US.
