FILE - In this July 28, 2017, file photo distributed by the North Korean government on Saturday, July 29, 2017, shows what was said to be the launch of a Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile at an undisclosed location in North Korea. A U.S. official says American intelligence agencies have assessed that North Korea has developed a nuclear warhead that could be fitted onto an intercontinental ballistic missile. The official says the Defense Intelligence Agency assessment, first reported by The Washington Post on Aug. 8, says North Korea has made a miniaturized nuclear warhead, but that it would still have to hurdle other technical issues before it could successfully deliver such a weapon.

The strongest U.N. sanctions in a generation may still prove no match for North Korea’s relentless nuclear weapons ambitions. Even in diplomatic triumph, the Trump administration is gambling that it has enough time to test if economic pressure can get Kim Jong Un’s totalitarian government to end its missile advances and atomic weapons tests (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E, File)

A truck driver waits at a traffic lights junction near a display board showing photos of high-rise buildings and ballistic missiles launches in North Korea outside the North Korean Embassy in Beijing, Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017. North Korea's recent flurry of missile launches _ 20 of them just in the past year _ are a new and alarming fact of life for Japan and its other neighbors. Beijing tends to object more vehemently to North Korean nuclear tests that have at times rocked buildings in northeastern China and raised worries over radioactive fallout and other unintended consequences, though President Xi Jinping's government appears unwilling to expend much effort or political capital to address North Korea's actions.
