Kim Jong-un threatens WAR on Donald Trump

North Korea and the US continue to flex their military muscle as fears mount that Kim Jong-un will launch a nuclear weapons test that could spark World War Three. Here is the latest news and updates on the North Korea-US tension.

Kim Jong-un’s regime has conducted a massive live-fire drill as tensions grow with the US.

Donald Trump has deployed an “armada” of submarines and a missile defence system in South Korea in response to the growing threat of Kim’s nuclear programme.

North Korea has warned that is is “ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US”, and is said to be “primed and ready” to launch a nuclear weapons test.

As fears grow that World War Three could be imminent, here is the latest news and live updates on North Korea.

The US military is deploying its Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) missile defence system in South Korea.

Parts of the system arrived in military vehicles and were met with protests from hundred of local residents.

China has warned that THAAD will do nothing to deter Kim Jong-un and will only destabilise regional security. It has urged the US and South Korea to withdraw the system.

Seoul’s defence ministry said in a statement: "South Korea and the United States have been working to secure an early operational capability of the THAAD system in response to North Korea's advancing nuclear and missile threat.”

It added that the system is not expected to be operational until the end of 2018.

Elsewhere, a joint US-South Korea military training drill saw tanks firing live rounds near to the Demilitarized Zone.

The exercise will last for 11 days and will involve aircraft carriers, fighter jets and military operations.

Later today, all 100 members of the US Senate will visit the White House for a briefing on North Korea, Press Secretary Sean Spicer has confirmed.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats will give an update on the growing tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons programme.

North Korea has conducted a live-fire drill after a guided-missile US submarine arrived at a South Korean dock.

The exercise coincided with the 85th anniversary of the founding of North Korea’s army and involved between 300 and 400 long-range artillery pieces capable of hitting Seoul, according to the Yonhap news agency.

Earlier, the USS Michigan docked at Busan in South Korea in the latest show of force from Donald Trump’s administration.

The US has officially called the submarine visit a “routine” stop, but its timing has not gone unnoticed.

Kim Jong-un’s despotic regime has threatened to launch a sixth nuclear test in response to the US military’s recent shows of force.

It was thought that the test would take place yesterday to coincide with the military anniversary, but reports now suggest that Kim is delaying his plans because of South Korea’s upcoming presidential election, which takes place on May 9.

Zhou Chenming, from the Knowfar Institute for Strategic and Defence Studies, said: “Kim would prefer a moderate candidate to be elected because he or she would be easier to deal with.”

Satellite images released earlier this month have shown that North Korea’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site is “primed and ready”.

Vice President Afif sworn in, pledges to help new president's vision of reform

Ahmed Afif was sworn in as the Vice President of Seychelles on Tuesday at State House in the capital, Victoria. Afif ran alongside Wavel Ramkalawan, who won the presidential election with 54.9 percent of the valid votes. In his address, Afif said, «I will discharge my responsibility without favour and in a way that we treat every Seychellois the same as we are all children of Seychelles.» «The task that I have taken will be a difficult one, not only because of COVID-19, but it is because there is a lot to transform in this society. Today the country needs a lot of direction and a lot of leadership. I am confident that the president elect, Wavel Ramkalawan, will provide the direction needed for Seychelles to surpass this period of economic difficulties,» he said. The new Vice President said that his role would be to assist President Ramkalawan to implement his reform and vision «to govern Seychelles during the next five years, where he will help advise and prepare an action plan of reforms in line with the thinking of the new government.» Afif, who completed his Bachelor of Science in Maths, operational research, statistics and economics in 1992, has occupied several posts in the government of Seychelles, an archipelago in the western Indian Ocean. He served as chief executive of the Seychelles International Business Authority (SIBA) and then later as Principal Secretary for Finance and Trade between 2007 and 2012. Afif was instrumental in helping the government design and implement a major macro-economic reform involving major fiscal and monetary reforms in 2008. After he left the government, Afif joined Lalyans Seselwa formed in 2015 and became the running mate of party leader, Patrick Pillay in the presidential election that year. He was elected as a Member of the National Assembly for the northern district of Anse Etoile in 2016 when his party joined the Linyon Demokratik Seselwa (LDS) coalition to contest the legislative elections. His party LDS won 20 out of the 26 districts in the National Assembly election October 22-24, with the remaining six going to United Seychelles. This is five seats more than the party won in the last election in September 2016.
