China defends imports of North Korean iron ore

Seventy-eight percent of respondents said they supported continuing diplomatic efforts to get North Korea to suspend its nuclear weapons program and seventy-five percent said they supported additional sanctions against the Kim regime. Half or more Americans, Japanese, South Koreans and Australians believe increasing sanctions will be more effective than deepening ties.

The targets now being weighed for sanctions would come from a list of firms numbering "substantially more than 10" that Trump shared with Chinese President Xi Jinping at a Florida summit in April and which United States experts have continued to compile for review, according to one of the officials. Moon later suggested "the US Commerce Department's own analytical data can attest" that the FTA shows a deficit in goods for the United States, but a deficit in services for South Korea. Seoul will demand South Korean officials to join the census activity for this year and next.

In the wake of North Korea's recent intercontinental ballistic missile test, the USA has been pushing for tougher sanctions on the regime.

The radar capable of tracking unmanned aerial vehicles from North Korea would be used for local air defense, and will enter mass production for deployment in 2018, South Korean news service Newsis reported.

Carried out just hours ahead of the Independence Day holiday in the USA, the test was the first of North Korea's Hwasong-14 missile, which the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) says can now successfully target the "heart of the United States". On May 29, new South Korean President Moon Jae-in emphasized the importance of cooperation with Russian Federation and expressed optimism that Moscow could facilitate an improvement in Seoul-Pyongyang relations.

Park's conservative government said 70 percent of the USA dollars paid as wages and fees at Kaesong was channeled to the North's ruling party.
