N. Korea: No more Diplomacy until ICBM Hits US

 DPRK developed an ICBM capable of hitting US mainland or create electronic blackout in America's computer network and GPS systems .
A North Korean diplomat warned Monday that nuclear war could "break out at any moment" if the U.S. continues to lead military activities around the Korean Peninsula, following a spike in tensions regarding Pyongyang's nuclear weapons advancement in recent weeks and threats of more tests to come. According to ReutersNorth Korea warned other countries this week that participating in military actions with the U.S. could result in retaliation, especially as a “nuclear war may break out at any moment.” As long as one does not take part in the U.S. military actions against the DPRK (North Korea), we have no intention to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against any other country,” North Korea ambassador Kim In Ryong in prepared remarks to a United Nations committee.

We will never put our nuclear weapons and ballistic rockets on the negotiation table under any circumstance, unless the hostile policy and the nuclear threat of the U.S. is thoroughly eradicated.
A North Korean official reaffirmed Pyongyang's commitment to developing a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching "all the way to the East coast of the mainland US," DPRK currently has no more interest in diplomacy with the US until it achieves that goal. "We want to send a clear message that the DPRK has a reliable defensive and offensive capability to counter any aggression from the United States," the official said. The situation on the Korean peninsula where the attention of the whole world is focused has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out at any moment," Kim In Ryong, North Korea's deputy ambassador to the U.N., told the General Assembly on Monday.

The U.S. has stepped up military exercises with allies like Japan and South Korea in the region in recent weeks, following North Korea's latest string of missile and nuclear tests. On Monday evening, U.S. Pacific Command conducted its first night combined training mission with a B-1B bomber alongside Japanese and South Korean planes in an area north of Japan. South Korea and the U.S. began a week-long naval exercise on Monday involving roughly 40 ships, including the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier.

 Nobody exact knew the North Korea's military capabilities, but Hwasong-14 ICBM can strike a target at distance of 1700 miles away.
The Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security estimated that North Korea posses about 16 nuclear warheads at the end of 2014. White House chief of staff John Kelly said last week that Americans should be concerned about North Korea's ability to reach the United States with an intercontinental ballistic missile.  Significantly, John Kelly noted that Pyongyang is developing a pretty good nuclear re-entry vehicle." For a missile to successfully strike a target it would have to re-enter the earth's atmosphere without breaking up. Kelly's comments seem to indicate that the US believes that North Korea is close to achieving what would be a key breakthrough for their missile program. The North Korean official told the media that  it just need few additional steps for achieving its goal of a reliable ICBM and maintain military power between US. 

North Korea and Iran has one step pending to reach their goal which is an above-ground nuclear detonation Electromagnetic pulse (EMP), like the kind North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho threatened at the United Nations last month when he suggested leader Kim Jong Un was considering detonating "an unprecedented scale hydrogen bomb" over the Pacific after Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea. The other step is the "testing of a long-range ICBM capable of reaching Guam and even further," the official said.

The North Korean delegate's remarks follow a ratcheting up of rhetoric from top U.S. officials in recent days in line with increasingly bellicose statements from President Donald Trump in public remarks and on Twitter. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told CBS' Face the Nation Sunday that Trump supports his diplomatic effort to broker peace with North Korea – despite tweets that appear to the contrary. The comments offer a sobering challenge to the US and the Trump administration which has offered mixed messages regarding diplomatic efforts with North Korea.
