Multiple China towns sprouting in Korea (in strategic important locations) part of BELT and Road project.
Current Korean Government is very docile to China.
1) No further deployment of THAAD
2) no US Missile defence
3) No trilateral US-Japan-Korea Alliance

India arrests South Korean CEO, 11 others for gas leak at LG Polymers ... ers-311551

Indian police have arrested 12 LG Polymers officials, including its South Korean chief executive, an officer said on Wednesday, two months after a gas leak at the company's south India chemical plant killed 12.

The arrests were made under a case of culpable homicide filed against the company's South Korean parent, LG Chem Ltd, when the leak occurred in May, police commissioner Rajiv Kumar Meena said.

This week, a government-appointed committee recommended that the plant be shifted away from human habitation and called for action against the top employees. It said LG Chem had been negligent and warning systems were not working.

Meena said three government officials had also been suspended for negligence.

North Korea's Kim boasts of his nukes amid stalled talks with US
Kim's comments show he has no intention of abandoning his weapons as prospects dim for resuming diplomacy with the United States
North Korea leader Kim Jong Un said his country's hard-won nuclear weapons were a solid security guarantee and a “reliable, effective” deterrent that could prevent a second Korean War, state media reported on Tuesday.

Kim said in his speech on Monday that his country has tried to become “a nuclear state” with “an absolute might” to prevent another war and that it has now built such a deterrent, according to the Korean Central News Agency.

“Now, we've changed to a country which can defend itself reliably and unwaveringly against high-intensity pressures and military threats and blackmailing by imperialistic reactionaries and hostile forces,” Kim said.

“There won't be any war on this land again and our national security and future will be guaranteed firmly and permanently because of our reliable, effective self-defensive nuclear deterrent,” Kim said.

North Korea's nukes are supplied by the Chinese but none can state that publicly as it would mean Soko, Japan and USA will forced by thier public to abandon all forms of business with China, which no one willing to do. It suits the CCP H&D that a small nation is able to shake and rattle all 3 of these countries while they act as a peace maker.
