North Korea carries out 'very important test'

Pyongyang, Dec 8 (BBC): North Korea says it has carried out a "very important test" at a satellite-launching site.

The KCNA state news agency said the results would be used to upgrade the country's strategic status. It provided no further details.  Analysts believe it could be a ground-based test of an engine to power a satellite launcher or an intercontinental ballistic missile.  It comes after Pyongyang appeared to shut the door on further US talks.  "We do not need to have lengthy talks with the US now, and denuclearisation is already gone out of the negotiating table," the North Korean envoy to the UN, Kim Song, said in a statement on Saturday.  North Korea attacks Trump's 'dotage of a dotard' Kim's missile and nuclear programme North Korea crisis in 300 words North Korea had set an end-of-year deadline for the US to come up with a new denuclearisation deal that would involve significant sanctions relief and set it would otherwise adopt a "new path".  On Saturday, US President Donald Trump said he still hoped to reach an agreement.
