North Korea sends 'slaves' to Russian Federation to make money for regime

AP Explains Why is SKorea pushing for talks with NKorea

The offer comes after the North claimed to have conducted the first test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) earlier this month, and said it had mastered the technology to mount a nuclear warhead on the missile. The North recently voiced suspicion over Moon's North Korea policy, and some conservatives in South Korea worry that his overture might weaken global pressure on North Korea.

The targeting of clothes or textile manufacturers may be outside current parameters of USA sanctions, but according to Kim Han-kwon, a professor at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy in South Korea, the move may be a response to North Korea's changing approach to earning foreign currency for the regime as Chinese restrictions have banned exports like coal, News 1 reported. Officials have insisted, however, they would only act at South Korea's request.

The European Union is considering tougher sanctions against North Korea following this month's missile launch.

Moon has said he will use both dialogue and pressure to resolve the standoff over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

Trump dodges on Russian Federation sanctions
On Thursday, two amendments to do exactly that were blocked by Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee. On Friday, the Associated Press reported there was another person in the meeting not disclosed by Trump Jr .

He told a briefing Monday for a group of United Nations correspondents that "dialogue for the sake of dialogue is meaningless". The last such talks were held in December 2015.

After the ICBM launch, Kim said he would never negotiate over his weapons programs as long as U.S. hostility and nuclear threats persist. But the North might set a precondition for the talks, such as a suspension of annual South Korean-U.S. military drills that it views as an invasion rehearsal, according to Koh Yu-hwan, a professor at Seoul's Dongguk University.

North Korea will likely accept Moon's proposed talks on easing border animosities, as it's something that it's previously called for.

Those talks would be held on August 1, also in Panmunjom - that is, if Pyongyang accepts.

Active search underway for triple shooting suspect in Gardendale
The cases are scheduled for jury trial in York County Court of Common Pleas on September 11, according to online court dockets. Police say they were responding to an emergency call in Gardendale Wednesday morning when they found a man and two women dead.

North Korea's state media didn't immediately respond to South Korea's proposals.

Japan supports new sanctions but also maintains that Russian Federation and China must do more to fully implement the current set of measures targeting their economic ties with North Korea.

Chances for talks on family reunions are slimmer as North Korea has already made it clear that it won't agree to a fresh reunion program unless Seoul returns some of the North Korean defectors living in the South who it says were abducted by South Korean agents.

"Testing an ICBM [intercontinental ballistic missile] represents a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region and the world", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement shortly after the test.

Foreign doctors say Liu Xiaobo could be moved
The doctors acknowledged the quality of care he has received and said they agreed with the diagnosis of primary liver cancer. China's foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether Liu would be allowed to leave.
