Japan creates North Korea division to address abductions, nuclear concerns

Kim's nukes have become rapidly more unsafe over the past few years, firing scores of missiles and last year and detonating an H-bomb.

Instead, North Korean workers have been observed entering China in defiance of the rules, they say.

Here's North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at what was said to be a missile test last May.

But in announcing talks between Kim and USA president Donald Trump, a South Korean official said the North Korean leader was committed to denuclearisation.

He said the Korean Peninsula is now relishing the atmosphere of reconciliation and trust between the North and South.

The report also suggested North Korea could be "dissuaded" from using nuclear weapons - adding the leader was "ruthless... but rational".

However, it is also noted there has been "no sign" of Kim wanting to target the United Kingdom with nuclear weapons.

He continued: "As a result of this risky US policy, the North Korean authorities that have actually been driven to the corner have achieved considerable progress in improving their missile and nuclear potential".

"Kim Jong-un seems to see such weapons as insurance against any threat to his regime's survival", the report noted.

At its height last week, the caravan consisted of nearly 1,500 people mostly from Central America. Trump has stepped up his anti-immigration rhetoric recently.

Despite the doomsday scenario, the Defence Committee claimed the crack pot dictator was still rational and could be reasoned with.

North Korea came dangerously close to war with the U.S. a year ago as Trump promised "fire and fury" in response to Kim.

The report argues it is "far more likely that the United Kingdom will continue to suffer from reckless North Korean cyber-attacks, such as Wannacry", on account of the regime's "utter lack of concern about who gets hurt by such attacks".

The United States, China and South Korea are now pursuing three different North Korea strategies.

The WannaCry attack hit targets across the world, including the NHS, in what is thought to be one of the most damaging cyber-attacks yet in the UK.

Moon's top security advisor, Chung Eui-yong, travelled to Pyongyang last month to meet Kim and to Washington D.C. and reached on agreements on the inter-Korean summit, as well as on a proposed US-North Korea summit.

The South's delegation Thursday was led by Kim Sang-gyun, a senior director from the National Intelligence Service, who met Kim Chang Son, an official from the North's state affairs commission and five other delegates.

A time and place have not been set for the Trump-Kim meeting to discuss denuclearization.
