"I wouldn't speculate on what North Korea's activities are or aren't", White told reporters at the Pentagon Thursday.

Satellite images taken this month of a North Korean naval shipyard indicate that Pyongyang is pursuing an "aggressive schedule" to build its first operational ballistic missile submarine, a United States institute has reported. North Korea has not commented on the defection. However, the report said no activity could be seen suggesting preparations for a new test of a submarine-launched missile.

China on Thursday reiterated its call for an agreement between North Korea and the US under which the North would gain concessions if it freezes its nuclear weapons program, apparently contradicting remarks a day earlier by President Donald Trump.

Parasites can enter the body in a number of ways - such as insect bites - but it is believed that many people in North Korea are likely to be infected as a result of contaminated food. Building a vehicle that can protect warheads from the heat and stress of a return flight - or re-entry capability - is critical for developing functional intermediate-range and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

It is meant to pressure North Korea and send a strong signal to Pyongyang of America's ability to rapidly mobilize a potent military force.

Pyongyang ruled out negotiations as long as the United States continues to conduct military exercises with South Korea.

Trump, who had previously called negotiations with North Korea a waste of time, has offered no clear path to talks.

Yonhap, citing unidentified diplomats in Beijing, said there was a good chance that Mr Song would meet Mr Kim tomorrow.

China said on Thursday a "dual suspension" proposal to handle North Korea was still the best option, after U.S. President Donald Trump said he and Chinese President Xi Jinping had rejected a "freeze for freeze" agreement.

Lee Min-bok, a North Korean agriculture expert, said: "Chemical fertiliser was supplied by the state until the 1970s, but from the early 1980s, production started to decrease".

Southeast Asian leaders have consistently expressed "grave concern" over North Korea's nuclear program.

But Mr Han Tae Song, North Korea's Ambassador to the United Nations, yesterday brushed off the U.S. threat.

"As long as there is continuous hostile policy against my country by the USA and as long as there are continued war games at our doorstep, then there will not be negotiations", the ambassador said.
