CIA sets up unit to address North Korean threat

13 Mai 2017

State media said he was involved in the timber industry in Khabarovsk, which is one of the primary places North Koreans can go overseas to work.

Kim Jong Un's regime "continues efforts to expand its stockpile of weapons-grade fissile materials", but "there is still a lot of development needed before" it can deploy a weapon such as a mobile ICBM able to reach the US mainland, Navy Commander William Marks, a Defense Intelligence Agency spokesman, said via email.

"Creating the Korea Mission Center allows us to more purposefully integrate and direct CIA efforts against the serious threats to the United States and its allies emanating from North Korea", CIA Director Mike Pompeo was quoted as saying.

USA and South Korean intelligence officials dismissed the accusations.

The CIA and the U.S. White House declined to comment on the statement from the North's Ministry of State Security last week.

A statement Thursday from the mission said a "Korean-style anti-terrorist offensive will be commenced to mop up the intelligence and plot-breeding organizations of the US and South Korea".

North Korea did not offer any evidence or specifics on how the alleged plot was foiled. It would be too optimistic to hold any formal or informal meetings among the six nations that had been involved in talks aimed at curbing North Korea's nuclear weapons programme - namely China, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Russia and the U.S., experts warned.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency said Thursday that Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol briefed unspecified foreign envoys and representatives of global bodies in Pyongyang, saying "heinous terrorists" had been detected in the North. It says he is a North Korean resident of Pyongyang who worked for a time in the Russian Far East. The administration has said, however, that it wants China to use its leverage over North Korea to reach a diplomatic solution to the crisis.

An intelligence source here said it will be headed by Andrew Kim, a leading Korean-American North Korea expert in the CIA who retired early this year. In 2011, a defector to South Korea suspected of being a North Korean secret agent was arrested on suspicion of attempting to assassinate Park Sang-hak, an outspoken critic of the Pyongyang regime.

The last time that Han appeared to brief foreign diplomats in Pyongyang was last December, to present North Korea's response to the latest round of United Nations sanctions after the September 2016 nuclear test.
