1396/10/15 | 06:28

The South Korean Unification Ministry, which oversees relations with the North, said Friday that Pyongyang had officially informed Seoul of the decision.

If US Nukes North Korea, radiation will affect China, Russia, South Korea

1396/7/3 | 06:28
  The US’ foreign policy may lead to a nuclear nightmare in Asia Pacific, compared to which the Fukushima disaster is a “firecracker,” an expert told Sputnik, adding that in his UN speech Donald Trump had repeatedly contradicted himself by calling upon nations to maintain their sovereignty while at the same time threatening to destroy North Korea.     US President Donald Trump’s threat to “totally destroy” North Korea in case the US is “forced to defend itself or its allies” means a potential atomic Armageddon ...

South Korea Unexpectedly Approves Aid to North Korea

1396/7/1 | 06:28
In a move no one expected, and which puts them squarely at odds with the US, South Korea today announced the provision of a new $8 million aid package for neighboring North Korea. The provision of humanitarian aid is directly in contrast with US calls for “more pressure.”   South Korea’s Unification Ministry says that there is no risk of the aid being diverted to military use, and will not include any cash payments. Rather, the aid is to wholly be in the form of food and medicine for children and pregnant women.     This ...

How Kim has Cornered the US

1396/7/1 | 06:28
  Years ago Bernard Brodie wrote about how war will be like after the induction of nuclear weapons. With the evolution of the concepts of deterrence and compellance, war strategies accounted for this “absolute weapon” as a mean to deter and compel the adversary.   Thankfully, a nuclear clash has remained hypothetical at best despite simmering nuclear rivalries. But it could all just change anytime. The Korean Peninsula is at a tipping point where a nuclear Armageddon cannot be ruled out.     Kim Jong Un, the feisty ...

1396/6/25 | 06:28

South Koreans Protest Against US Missile Defense Deployment, Dozens Injured

1396/6/17 | 06:28
  Public opposition to the deployment of US THAAD missile defense systems near a South Korean farming village has grown into major protests, with demonstrators coming out in force after the announcement the government was letting the US install four additional launchers.   The THAAD are installed at a former golf course, and in an area that was historically very pro-military, because the previous government expected them to support the deployment. Instead, locals were opposed to the move, fearing the US presence would make them ...

North Korea can turn South into desert without using nukes

1396/6/9 | 06:28
  Solving the Korean Peninsula crisis through diplomacy is in everyone’s interests, geopolitical experts have told RT, citing potential scenarios of South Korea being turned “into a desert,” or other states, not directly involved, being severely affected by a “stray missile.”     If the current situation in East Asia is not resolved, a number of countries “will be living under a threat of a nuclear volcano erupting,” Russian diplomat and an expert in Asian studies, professor Georgy Toloraya told RT.com.   “Everyone ...

How ‘isolated’ North Korea managed to build an ICBM that could reach Alaska

1396/4/18 | 06:28
North Korea is a country in isolation, a place where most citizens don't have access to the Internet or the means to travel abroad. In 2010, the New York Times described the country as a “ ‘hermit kingdom,’ so poor that there is almost no supply of concrete, bricks or window glass. People suffer shortages of rice, gasoline and even underwear.” And yet. It’s been able to expand its weapons technology at an astounding rate. Earlier this week, it test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that experts say could have reached Alaska. ...

THAAD deployment:  China-US towards an inevitable clash

1395/12/24 | 06:28
    The United States has begun deploying the THAAD system in South Korea just after North Korea launched the latest four missiles.     Beijing took Seoul’s decision of the THAAD deployment negatively from the defence perspective as it introduced regional strategic imbalance.     The track of land on which the THAAD will be deployed in South Korea, belongs to the Lotte Group, a private business conglomerate, which runs a huge business in China.   The Chinese reaction came against the Lotte Group and negatively ...

1395/9/24 | 06:28

5G technology: Is it a day dreaming by Pakistan?

1395/6/26 | 06:28
 Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Ahsan Iqbal claimed earlier this week that the government was planning to launch '5th Generation' cellular services "soon" for faster connectivity. The claim came as a shock, since parts of the country do not have access even to 3G services. Besides, 5G technology is not available anywhere in the world as yet. China, Japan, South Korea and the United Kingdom have all set targets of 2020 for the launch of 5G services ─ a deadline which several experts term "ambitious". A recent report published ...

1395/2/1 | 06:28

Is US afraid of North Korea’s nuclear ambitions?

1395/1/19 | 06:28
Taking advantage of a perceived thaw in relations between Tokyo and Seoul, U.S. President Barack Obama met with his counterparts from Japan and South Korea on the fringes of the Nuclear Security Summit to promote greater trilateral unity to address North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. But at their meeting in Washington, the leaders of the three nations came up short on ideas about how to persuade Pyongyang to stop provocative acts like nuclear weapons tests and rocket launches. “The United States has invested quite a bit of time and diplomatic ...
