More, in the Philippines case there is actually a trend upward, and as Greitens noted, the Philippines is North Korea's third largest trading partner after China and India-even eclipsing Russian Federation. "In my discussions with senior officials in both South Korea and the USA, the view was that should North Korea ever be recognised as a nuclear weapons state, then Japan and (South) Korea would have little option than to develop their own nuclear weapons capability", she said.

The North brought in 4,100 tons of grain from China in April, 5.4 times higher than 754 tons a year earlier, said Voice of America, citing Kwon Tae-jin, head of South Korean agricultural think tank GS&J Institute's North Korea and East Asia division.

The Associated Press reported Monday North Korea is ready to begin the mass production of its new missile, which could reach Japan and major military bases.
