FILE - In this Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017 file photo, South Koreans watch a TV news program showing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's New Year's speech, at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea. U.S. President-elect Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2017, that North Korea won’t develop a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the United States, but it’s possible it already has. After five atomic test explosions and a rising number of ballistic missile test launches, many experts believe that North Korea can arm short- and mid-range missiles with warheads that put Guam at risk. The letters on the screen read "New Year for Reunification." (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon, File)
