U.S. not giving up on diplomacy with N. Korea: State Department

North Korea's ongoing nuclear weapons tests prompting its neighbor in the South to step up its own military capabilities.

Juche, which translates as "self-reliance", is Pyongyang's ruling ideology, a blend of Marxism and hyper-nationalism.

The North carried out its sixth nuclear test - and most powerful to date - on September 3.

Tina Fordham also said she does not want to attribute probabilities to future developments in the Korean Peninsula because the variables of the crisis are volatile, highlighting the difficulty of predicting how the tensions between the Pyongyang leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump will evolve. He has now visited North Korea 32 times as part of his "sports exchanges" between Japan and North Korea, which have no formal diplomatic ties.

SEOUL - North Korea has resumed work at its underground nuclear testing site, defense analysts said, as the country vowed to keep expanding its nuclear arsenal despite the latest United Nations sanctions.

"It is something that markedly heightens regional tension and is absolutely unacceptable", Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief cabinet secretary, said on Thursday.

The new sanctions set a cap on crude and refined oil exports to North Korea at 8.5 million barrels per year, which represents a 30 percent reduction, according to US officials. The other $4.5 million would go to the U.N. World Food Program, according to the ministry official.

A new report has claimed that the detonation of what North Korea claimed was a hydrogen bomb involved a device with an estimated yield of 250 kilotons - making it far more powerful than initially thought, the report said. A ban was also placed on its textile exports - its largest export after coal and other minerals.

The Chinese say they are implementing sanctions along the border, but they have not been forthcoming in issuing clear restrictions to trading companies, or in reporting how required inspections of all goods crossing the North Korean border are being implemented. All are important sources of currency for the isolated nation.

Anthony Ruggiero, a former U.S. Treasury Department official who is now an analyst with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, described how North Korea and Russian Federation tried to cover up a clandestine oil deal.

The worldwide community has scaled up efforts to rein in North Korea, which has always been hell-bent on nuclear advancement, in light of its nuclear test earlier this month and its string of recent missile launches.
