North Korea conducted a big live-fire exercise on Tuesday to mark the foundation of its military, media reported, as a U.S. submarine docked in South Korea in a show of force amid growing concern over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs.
The port call by the USS Michigan came as a U.S. aircraft carrier strike group steamed toward Korean waters and as the top envoys for North Korea policy from South Korea, Japan, and the United States met in Tokyo.
Fears have risen in recent weeks that North Korea could conduct another nuclear test or long-range missile launch in defiance of U.N. sanctions, perhaps on the Tuesday anniversary of the founding of its military.
Terrorism threat to Europe if the UK is refused a trade deal
By Ian Drury and Larisa Brown for the Daily Mail
* UK Government threatens to withdraw security expertise over trade deal dispute * Europol - EU's policing agency - would lose access to UK world-class intelligence * Security chiefs in Brussels concerned as other nations rely on British capabilities * UK one of largest contributors to global fight against crime, including extremism
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Britain was the argest contributor to Europol Europe will be more vulnerable to terrorism and organised crime if Britain is refused a significant trade deal, it was claimed last night.
Europol, the EU policing agency, will lose access to the UK’s world-class intelligence and policing capabilities if there is no agreement, the Government warned.
Security chiefs in Brussels will be worried because Britain is one of the biggest contributors to the global fight against crime, including extremism, people-trafficking and cyber-crime, and other nations rely on UK intelligence.
