We will sink Japan and turn US to 'ashes and darkness', says North Korea

1396/6/25 | 18:42
North Korea has threatened to sink Japan and said the US should be “beaten to death like a rabid dog” after the two countries spearheaded fresh UN security council sanctions in response to the regime’s recent nuclear test. The Korea Asia-Pacific peace committee, which oversees North Korea’s relations with the outside world, described the UN security council, which passed a new round of sanctions on Monday, as a “tool of evil” in the pay of Washington, and called for it to be broken up.   It is the first time that Pyongyang ...

South Koreans Protest Against US Missile Defense Deployment, Dozens Injured

1396/6/17 | 18:42
  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 | 18:42
  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 ...

Russian nuclear-capable bombers fly near North Korea amid US drills

1396/6/3 | 18:42

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

1396/4/18 | 18:42
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 | 18:42
    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 | 18:42
     South Korean lawmakers impeached President Park Geun-hye after weeks of massive, but peaceful, street protests calling for her ouster.    The leader has been accused of corruption and abuse of power.

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

1395/6/26 | 18:42
 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 ...

An inevitable clash: US policies may trigger Nuclear War in Korean Peninsula

1395/2/1 | 18:42
 South Korean President Park Geun-hye on Monday said North Korea appeared to be readying for a fifth nuclear test in defiance of tightened United Nations sanctions imposed after its last test in January. "Signs that it is preparing a fifth nuclear test have recently been detected," Park told a cabinet meeting. Her remarks followed South Korean media reports in which unnamed government and intelligence officials spoke of a spike in activity at the North's Punggye-ri nuclear test site. A fresh test would see Pyongyang doubling down in the ...

Is US afraid of North Korea’s nuclear ambitions?

1395/1/19 | 18:42
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 ...
