North Korea cut a third telephone hotline to the South on Wednesday and doubled down on its threats against the United States, but analysts say the bellicose rhetoric is empty — that Pyongyang's missiles cannot reach the U.S.
North Korea's successful launch of a weather satellite proves that the secretive communist nation could develop a multistage ballistic missile capable of reaching parts of the United States, potentially with a nuclear warhead, analysts said Wednesday.
An analyst says a recent satellite image shows that North Korea has completed a key step in the construction of a light-water reactor at its main nuclear complex.
China likely provided the mobile long-range-missile launcher that North Korea displayed in a military parade over the weekend, a move that would put Beijing in violation of U.N. sanctions, analysts say.
North Korea likely will bring the rocket it plans to test-fire this month to the launch pad within days, according to an analysis of new satellite pictures of the launch site.
