In an interview with the BBC on Monday, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that his agency was concerned that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may be mere months away from having full nuclear capabilities, able to launch a missile at any target in the U.S. in the very near future.

In response to such reports, the U.S. State Department warned Russian Federation that "there is no more time for excuses" for evading sanctions on North Korea.

"We are waging a campaign of maximum pressure to prevent that from happening", Trump said, reiterating his position to approach the issue differently than his predecessors. Originally the foundation day was February 8 - the date in 1948 when the North Korean People's Army was established, according to South Korea's Hankyoreh newspaper. The US government has in the past said that Khartoum is one of the state sponsors of global terrorism.

Tammy Duckworth, a Democrat senator from IL, was quoted in the Atlantic magazine as saying in a recent speech, "Americans simply are not in touch with just how close we are to war on the Korean Peninsula". U.S. President George W. Bush first began a campaign of global economic pressure against Iranian banks in 2006, and the United Nations and the U.S. Congress both enacted tough sanctions between 2010 and 2012.
