Xi likely to visit N Korea next year

Xi likely to visit N Korea next year

In another apparent concession, the North on Friday deported an American citizen it said had been detained for illegally entering the country from China on October 16.

China appears to have relaxed enforcement of sanctions on Pyongyang, as relations between China and North Korea have thawed after the long-time ally of Beijing began to engage with the U.S. this year, a U.S. congressional commission said earlier this week.

It did not specify when the United States citizen will be deported.

"DPRK-U.S. negotiations have reached a deadlock", the North Korean media said in a commentary asking "can we trust the U.S.?"

This was Kim's first visit to the factory - which was found to have produced military lenses and was subject to South Korea's sanctions in 2016 - since 2014.

It's the first publicly known field inspection of a weapons test by Kim Jong Un since he observed the testing of the Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile in November of past year, according to South Korea's Unification Ministry.

The South Korean presidential spokesman said Mr Xi was also willing to come to South Korea next year at a convenient time. There are indications about the release of Bruce Byron Lowrance before the Christmas Eve.

The U.S. State Department doubled down on their trust in the country, saying in response to the new test, that the U.S. remains confident that promises made will be fulfilled.

The North Korea-China border have seen increased economic activity since denuclearization talks began. It's the first publicly known field inspection of a weapons test by Kim since he observed the testing of the Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile in November of a year ago, according to South Korea's Unification Ministry.

Meanwhile, North Korea seems to be eyeing economic development amid a thaw in its ties with China.

The North Korean media said Washington made an attempt to pressure Pyongyang by staging joint drills with Tokyo - a likely reference to this month's Keen Sword 2019 drills.

Earlier this month, North Korea's Foreign Ministry warned it could bring back its policy of bolstering its nuclear arsenal if it doesn't receive sanctions relief. The testing of the highly developed weapon has occurred in a sensitive time period, with United States hopes for nuclear disarmament and Pyongyang's recent release an American prisoner.

The leader "added that the weapon is just like a posthumous weapon and he missed Kim Jong Il very much while seeing the great success of its test", KCNA reported. Yang Wook, a Seoul-based military expert, said a "tactical weapon" in North Korea refers to "a weapon aimed at striking South Korea including USA military bases" there, so the North may have tested a short-range missile or a multiple rocket launch system.
