  • North Korea Blasts US Terrorism Blacklisting

That the new list included a Chinese individual - the CEO of a company in a city near North Korea - and four Chinese companies show that the action also seeks to press China, the North's sole remaining ally and the largest benefactor, as well.

US President Donald Trump this week declared North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism, a spot on a US blacklist Pyongyang had shed almost a decade ago. The alliance comes as North Korea is increasingly isolated from the worldwide community as its nuclear threats against the US continue. Instead, the North Korean media has denounced President Trump in often insulting language to which Trump has responded in twitter messages insulting Kim Jong-Un. He added to this campaign for worldwide support in a telephone conversation Tuesday with Russia's President Vladimir Putin, seeking to enlist his support for heightened pressure against the North.

According to a report in The Financial Chronicle, Air China has suspended flights to North Korea, further limiting the secretive state's links with the outside world, in what the government said was a business decision with no political motives. One of his favorite comments is the USA should have re-designated North Korea as a sponsor of terror "a long time ago" - that was a dig against Obama's policy of "strategic patience" in dealing with the North. Trump has hinted that he would consider a "military option", possibly including a "preemptive strike" on its nuclear and missile facilities.

Kyoto, Osaka, Yokohoma and Kyoto are among the Japanese targets, while Seoul, Degu and Jongwon in South Korea are also identified.

Kenyatta to be sworn-in next week
The court in September nullified the August presidential election over irregularities and ordered a new vote held last month. Kenyatta's August 8 win, citing irregularities. "The court has unanimously determined that the petitions are not merited".

The UN estimated the latest ban, imposed after its two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July, would slash by North Korea's $3-billion annual export revenue by a third. The recent visit of a special Chinese envoy to North Korea should give a clue to the North's position.

Some analysts say Tuesday's move by the United States administration of President Donald Trump is unlikely to deter the North from pursuing nuclear capabilities, and will only push any potential dialogue over de-nuclearisation further away. China, moreover, still pours oil into North Korea, fueling an economy that otherwise survives on far less efficient coal.
