The nation’s state media has announced that the leader has halted the plans to better assess the situation. South Korea says that its neighbor has also removed its propaganda speakers at the border.
North Korea has declared that it has exhausted all avenues to overcome nuclear threats from the United States. Kim Jong Un is reportedly getting frustrated by the lack of progress involving talks with the United States, which could help reopen his country’s economy.
In recent months, relations between North and South Korea have deteriorated sharply. On June 16, Pyongyang blew up the building of the joint communications headquarters for engagement with South Korea, which was located in the vicinity of the border city of Kaesong.
North Korea has threatened to destroy the United States in the event of renewed war on the Korean Peninsula. This statement came via North Korean Embassy in Moscow. “A new round of the Korean War will add a particularly sensational event to the history of mankind, which will put an end to another empire, whose name is the United States,” said representatives of Pyongyang.
Over 800 people are quarantined in North Korean stopgap quarantine-centers.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un only travels by trains. The North Korean National airline Air-Koryo has never flown Kim. It is unknown, if the North Korean leader has ever taken a flight.

North and South Korea exchanged fire along the border on Sunday morning, bringing about tension between the two countries. The last time the two sides exchanged fire on the border was in 2014, with North Korean soldiers also shooting at a defector in 2017. However, the South did not fire back.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has been seen again in public, according to the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), after 20 days of absence.

North Korea’s state news agency, KCNA, reported that Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un attended the opening of a fertilizer factory on May 1. It was the first time in 20 days, since April 12, that Kim’s movements were reported, and some foreign media reported that his health had deteriorated.
Many theories have been put forward in regard to Kim Jong Un’s present condition. A new report indicates that he is most probably in good health, and could be sheltering from the Covid-19 epidemic. That said, however, North Korea has yet to record a single coronavirus infection case.
South Korean officials have poured cold water on swirling rumors suggesting that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is dead. Speaking to CNN, Moon Chung-in, a top adviser to South Korean President Moon Jae-in has said that the North Korean leader is in good health, and that there’s nothing out of the ordinary.
Following yet another weekend of rumors about the possible death of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, South Korea, as well as China, asserted on Monday that Kim was very much alive. Moon Chung-in, a special adviser on national security to the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, put it plainly: “Our government position is firm, Kim Jong-Un is alive and well.”
The world has lately been treated to days of rumors and innuendos about the whereabouts and possible death of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. However, in what appears to be a hint that the Supreme Leader could actually be alive and kicking, the Chinese channel CCTV reports activity from Kim Jong-un.

There has been a tug of war for geopolitical influence and attempts to disrupt the already established balance throughout 2019. We also saw the formation of interesting and very invasive social media polices around the globe. Hence, there were ramifications and changes to the social media landscape:
- France implementing new measures to track and monitor the social media of its citizens.
- Russia is working to complete their digital iron curtain.
- China implementing draconian verification process impacting social credit and privacy.
- UK to ruthlessly start collecting DNA.
- We’ve also seen the rise of deep fake technology that could have a great impact on the US 2020 Presidential elections as well as on the global scale.
Let’s look at the world’s main players and regions:
Now everyone in the western world has access to high speed internet and a 4G network. On the global scale, a majority of nations have access to it as well. The evolving technology allows quality videos and images in high definition (HD). Social media is one of the biggest news sources for many and one of the most powerful social engineering tools in use.
Chinese internet giant Sohu published information pertaining to Japan’s nuclear capabilities. Sohu.com Inc. (NASDAQ: SOHU) is China’s premier online brand and indispensable to the daily life of millions of Chinese, providing a network of web properties. All Chinese media is controlled by the Chinese government. According to the publication, Japan has enough nuclear fuel to make over 6,000 nuclear bombs. The amount is enough to destroy a whole nation.
North Korea made a confirmation on Friday that it had successfully tested a super-large multiple launch rocket system on Thursday and that the nation’s leader Kim Jong-un was present during the test.

The Ural Science Education Center (USEC), backed by Roskosmos, has announced a new project. The USEC opened this year under a Kremlin directive and is expected to have 15 additional centers opened within the next six years across Russia. The project consists of creating a platform which will gather information about each user. It will gather each individual’s digital footprint— the trail of data you create while using the Internet. This includes the websites you visit, emails you send, and information you submit to online services.
North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un has cast doubts on the possibilities of holding a future summit with U.S. President Donald Trump. The state-controlled news agency, KCNA, reported the information on Thursday night. At the same time, Kim is hoping for President Trump to change on several issues.As late as September 9, Kim announced that he was ready to meet with Donald Trump to discuss nuclear weapons in the Korean Peninsula.
Just a few hours after announcing Pyongyang’s willingness to resume dialogue with the United States, the North Korean government made a new missile launch on Tuesday. According to sources from the General Staff of the South Korean Armed Forces, two shots were fired towards the direction of the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea.
North Korea on Friday fired two “unidentified projectiles” into the sea, South Korea joint chiefs revealed. Today’s projectiles are the sixth, in less than a month. According to South Korea, the projectiles were fired from near Tongchon, a town in southwestern Kangwon Province, and fell into the sea of Japan.
North Korea has rejected any peace talks with South Korea. They seems to be angered by the leader of the South. The North Korean Alliance Committee has issued a statement that appears to be a rebuke to South Korean President Moon Jae-In. In a statement, North Korea said it had nothing to say.
As joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea began on Monday, North Korea for the fourth time in less than two weeks fired “unidentified projectiles,” in a clear protest and opposition to Washington-Seoul military co-operation. North Korea on Tuesday said that US and South Korean joint military maneuvers were not only a violation of peace efforts on the Korean peninsula but also showed a lack of “political will “of the two countries to improve relations.”
Kim Jong-un doubled down and conducted his second missile launch in less than a week. The first missile was detected at 5.06, followed by another at 5.27. The two were shot from a transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) vehicle at a point near Wonsan port, on the east coast of the peninsula, the same area where last week’s missiles were fired. The projectiles were similar to those of the last week, according to a General Staff statement, which added that “the successive launches by North Korea do not lead to reduce tensions and we urge you to stop them.”
The North Korean government said Friday the missiles launched yesterday are new tactical weapons designed to send a “solemn warning” to South Korea to stop importing armaments and conducting joint military exercises with the United States. The launch of two short-range missiles on Thursday was the first since North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump met last month in the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas.
The missiles that North Korea fired on Thursday are “a new type of guided tactical weapon,” the official KCNA news agency said on Friday. North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un “took it upon himself to organize and led” the trial of the “ultramodern weapon system,” which is “a solemn warning to the South Korean warlock military,” said KCNA. The announcement of the official news agency refers to the Thursday’s launch by North Korea of two short-range missiles that fell in the Sea of Japan.
Kim Jong-un inspected a new submarine in what looks like a new gesture to pressure the US within the framework of denuclearization talks. While negotiations remain stagnant, North Korea does not stop its military development. North Korean propaganda media yesterday claimed that Kim reviewed the submarine, with a deployment near the waters of the Sea of Japan (called the East Sea in the two Koreas).
Monday was another bad day for Chinese tech giant Huawei. The Washington Post dropped a major bombshell on the company regarding alleged (highly-illegal) dealings in North Korea, and Czech Radio added another involving activities in their own country. The news adds fresh and serious doubts about the company’s potential western footprint, and bolster’s Washington’s case that the giant is a threat to American national security and users’ privacy. President Trump met tech CEOs in the White House Monday, partially to discuss what to do about it.
