North Korean diplomat in Russian Federation for talks on US

Earlier today it was reported that any attempt by North Korea to fire a missile at the United States may force the U.S. military to destroy a nuclear warhead over Russian territory, as this would be the likeliest trajectory of a missile.

The ministry said Choe Son Hui, chief of the North American department of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, met with Oleg Burmistrov, a Russian diplomat dealing with the issue.

According to Dr Brad Roberts, former U.S. deputy assistant secretary of defence for nuclear and missile defence policy has said that attacking Australia is a choice that North Korea leader Kim Jong-un would make, without anyone having a say in it.

Russian Federation might be trying to get involved in back-channel diplomacy between Pyongyang and Washington, the sources said.




The most likely trajectory of a North Korean ICBM fired at the US would mean interception would happen over Russian airspace, USA officials have conceded in a new article published by DefenseOne. "Should the USA launch a preemptive strike against North Korea, it would spark a full-scale war between the South and the North".

US President Donald Trump is locked in a war of words with North Korea, which has said Mr Trump's threat to "totally destroy" the hermit kingdom amounts to a declaration of war.

Prior to North Korea's most recent test launch, the USA and its allies had 15 minutes' warning before the missile was sacked, suggesting an early intercept is possible if a launch is believed to be a danger.

Joseph Yun, the USA special representative for North Korea policy, also visited Russian Federation on September 12 and September 13, South Korean media have reported. It remains to be seen whether this strategy will work or if Moscow or Beijing actually still have leverage over the North Korean junta. China also recently gave a green light to a package of sanctions in the UN Security Council that attemtps to ban over 90 percent of the country's exports.
