The United States will supply South Korea with 40 surface-to-air missiles to enhance its military might against threats originating from the North amid growing tensions in the region.
Quoting military sources, Seoul's Yonhap News Agency reported Sunday that the Defense Ministry would obtain the missiles for an Aegis destroyer in July.
Meanwhile, South Korean Defense Minister Lee Sang-Hee claimed Tuesday in a parliamentary hearing that Pyongyang was secretly enriching uranium to advance its nuclear program.
But only one contract was agreed to on Tuesday. That went to a pairing of BP and the China National Petroleum Corporation for the largest field on offer: Rumaila, near the southern city of Basra, which has proven reserves of 17 billion barrels. Once the bid is accepted by the oil minister, Hussain al-Shahristani, Parliament must issue final approval.
WASHINGTON (AFP) — China has given its word to the United States that it is "deeply committed" to implementing tough new nuclear sanctions against North Korea, a senior US official said Friday.
The official also said that as part of the effort to put a straitjacket on Pyongyang after its latest nuclear test and missile launches, Washington had set up an inter-agency team to coordinate the sanctions with other nations.
"They are certainly saying quite strenuously that they are deeply committed to full implementation of the provisions that are in the resolution," the senior administration official said, referring to China.
Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- The U.S. chief executive invited puppet traitor Lee Myung Bak of south Korea to visit Washington in mid-June and promised him to provide "extended deterrence" including "nuclear umbrella" to south Korea and made it public in an official document.
What merits a serious attention is that the U.S. and south Korea declared that they would openly put into practice their scenario for a nuclear attack on the DPRK which has been secretly pushed forward in the backroom for years, the commentary notes, and goes on: There are already signs of this development.
There are reports that the nuclear-powered carrier George Washington has appeared in the waters close to the Korean Peninsula and the U.S. 7th fleet combat group led by the nuclear-powered carrier Ronald Reagan left its mainland and headed for Northeast Asia.
The U.S. will be held fully accountable for all the consequences to be entailed by the nuclear stand-off between the DPRK and the U.S.
