  • UN Human Rights Council adopts new North Korea resolution

Malaysian authorities suspect North Korea orchestrated the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, who is known to have criticized the country's hereditary succession custom, at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 13, using the deadly nerve agent VX.

China Press, a Malaysian Chinese-language newspaper, said four police officers visited the North Korean Embassy for 2 1/2 hours also Sunday to question three suspects staying within the compound.

On Feb 22, Khalid said the police were seeking Uk-il, 37, an employee of North Korean airline, Air Koryo, to shed light on Jong-nam's murder.

North Korea's latest attempt to test-fire a missile was a failure, with the rocket exploding seconds after launch, according to American officials monitoring the nation.

. Kim Chol was the name on the passport Jong-nam used to travel to Malaysia.

Kim Jong Un not only belongs but was elected to be the chairman of past year. The representative said only driver knows the whereabouts of the body, and that they have been told not to divulge anything.


The discussions are "ongoing" but a decision should be reached "very soon", Malaysian Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam quoted by Malaysia's New Straits Times as saying early Monday, adding that the investigation will continue regardless of the agreement.

The United States has imposed fresh sanctions on foreign companies or individuals for violating export controls on North Korea, as well as Iran and Syria, the State Department said on Friday.

Malaysian authorities said he was poisoned by the VX nerve agent by two women assailants, an Indonesian and a Vietnamese, who have been charged in court.

The op-ed came almost two weeks after State Department Secretary Rex Tillerson announced the USA would not negotiate with North Korea and hinted at military action if Pyongyang doesn't comply with sanctions.

It is believed that the arrangements were made by Wisma Putra which is liaising with Jong-Nam's family to receive the 45-year-old victim's body in Macau before tomorrow.
