North Korean Workers Return to China in Defiance of UN Restrictions

K-Pop stars brought a message of unity- but some diplomats didn't get the memo

"Our written evidence sets out where we are in dealing with that threat, but of course while we judge that Kim's offensive cyber-capability is mainly directed towards South Korea, the consequences of irresponsible use of viruses and cyber-weaponry are unpredictable by their very nature, as we saw with the WannaCry virus", Howe noted.

Its sole goal will be to establish a direct hotline between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, which Cheong Wa Dae officials earlier said would enable "frequent" discussions between the two leaders.

The talks were discontinued after North Korea refused to give up nuclear weapons.

Kim proposed another concert in South Korea later this year with performers from the North in response to this week's shows in Pyongyang by K-pop artists, South Korea's Culture Minister Do Jong-whan told reporters in Seoul.

The North Korean leader plans to bring up the matter in his upcoming summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, the report states.

The report also suggested North Korea could be "dissuaded" from using nuclear weapons - adding the leader was "ruthless... but rational".

Kim's predecessors, grandfather Kim Il-sung and father Kim Jong-il, both promised not to pursue nuclear weapons but secretly maintained programs to develop them, culminating in the North's first nuclear test in 2006 under Kim Jong-il.

"It would result in the downfall - indeed the annihilation of the regime: the polar opposite of what Kim Jong-un is seeking to achieve".

Despite the doomsday scenario, the Defence Committee claimed the crack pot dictator was still rational and could be reasoned with.

The multilateral talks were held between 2003 and 2007, during which the United States, South Korea, Japan, North Korea, China and Russian Federation met six times to discuss steps toward North Korea denuclearization.

Kim, last month, made a surprise visit to Beijing and met Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Defence Committee chairman, Dr Julian Lewis MP, said North Korea also posed a cyber threat and called for more money to counter it.

"With North Korea unconcerned by who gets hurt when it lashes out, the United Kingdom will continue to be at risk from North Korean cyber-attacks".

One source in China's Jilin Province said hundreds of North Korean women were seen in the area.

But in announcing talks between Kim and Trump, a South Korean official said the North Korean leader was committed to denuclearisation.
