An international trade fair underway in North Korea appears to be the largest of its kind on record. Chinese companies are especially well represented but firms from Poland, Syria, Russia and Indonesia are also showcasing their wares.
North Korea's ongoing weapons program has shown why an imperfect nuclear deal is better than no deal at all. By applying "maximum pressure," the US has isolated Tehran and failed to stop Pyongyang.
North Korea has fired unidentified projectiles into the sea. The launch came just hours after a senior North Korean official offered to restart stalled denuclearization talks with the United States.
Despite facing an acute food shortage, North Korea has said it wants a reduction in UN aid, claiming "hostile forces" have made aid programs ineffective. According to the UN, over 40% of North Koreans are undernourished.
Pyongyang has rejected South Korea's hopes for dialogue, saying inter-Korean talks are off the table. North Korea launched two missiles into the sea in protest of joint US-South Korean military drills.
