North Korea and Cuba meet after NoKo declares they're close to enriching uranium

North Korea and Cuba meet after NoKo declares they're close to enriching uranium

First, we get this news which was widely reported:

North Korea Nears Nuclear Breakthrough: Reports

TOKYO — North Korea said Friday that it’s entered the final phase of gaining uranium-enrichment capability and plans to build more plutonium bombs, reports said Friday. The advance would offer the nation a second way to make nuclear weapons material, in addition to its known plutonium-based program, Reuters reported.

Okay, that’s bad enough. But then, there’s this:

DPRK, Cuban FMs meet to enhance traditional ties

PYONGYANG, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) — Pak Ui Chun, foreign minister of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), met with his Cuban counterpart Bruno Rodriguez here Friday to enhance bilateralties

In a welcoming reception for Rodriguez and his delegation, Pak said “the traditional friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries…are now growing stronger,” (emphasis mine) the official KCNA news agency reported.

Rodriguez said “the Cuban people know well about the successes registered by the Korean people in the struggle to embody the Juche idea.”

Cuban people are following with keen interest the Korean people foiling the moves of the U.S. imperialists for aggression,” (emphasis mine) he added.

The Cuban delegation started its visit to Pyongyang from Thursday.

We already know North Korea doesn’t care what the world thinks of what it does, and we also know they have no problem selling their weapons technology.

Does this mean we’ll soon have nukes 90 miles away from the U.S. in a country whose “leadership” once wanted the Russians to shoot their nukes at us (during the Cuban Missile Crisis)?
