Air China suspends flights to North Korea

In recent days, Trump added North Korea back on the state sponsors of terrorism list, but experts warn that it will do little to influence North Korea's nuclear program.

The researchers gathered their information from announcements made on North Korean state media and were able to come up with 15 targets on North Korea's list, including the Pentagon, Tokyo and USA strategic sites in the Pacific Ocean.

"North Korea's nuclear and ballistic weapons programmes are the product of a rational cost-benefit analysis".

The Republican president, who has traded personal insults with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but has not ruled out talks, said the Treasury Department will announce additional sanctions against North Korea on Tuesday.

The decision was labelled a "serious provocation" by the North Korean regime.

The sanctions showed the determination of the U.S.to stifle trade across the Yalu or Amnok River between the Chinese city of Dandong and Sinuiju on the North Korean side.

Air China has cancelled flights between Beijing and Pyongyang due to low demand, closing one of the few routes into North Korea.

These and other sanctions will surely give North Korea a hard time.

Some people inside the building were also firing shots", said Umesh, who identified himself only with his first name. He said that right before the firing started, three vehicles full of policemen had arrived outside the building.

This continues a trend in which US-North Korea relations appear to send a lot of mixed messages.

US diplomats responsible for negotiating with the North Koreans in previous years were by and large supportive of strong sanctions - and also of calling North Korea a "terror state".

Trump's decision comes amid heightened nuclear tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Trump in restoring North Korea to the terror list criticized his predecessor, Barack Obama, for not having taken such a bold move during his eight years on office.

Christopher Hill is the former USA diplomat who was instrumental in persuading first the secretary of state at the time, Condoleezza Rice, and then President Bush, to pull North Korea's name from the "terror list".

North Korea did not immediately respond to being accused again of sponsoring terrorism but lashed out at Trump for insulting the leadership in Pyongyang during a speech this month in South Korea.

He further disclosed that the designation is long overdue step and part of the U.S.
