Military Plane to Monitor North Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un left and South Korean President Moon Jae-in embrace each other after signing a joint statement

The Canadian military deployment will join ongoing counter-smuggling efforts by Britain and the U.S.

The move by Australia and Canada to deploy patrol aircraft comes after a British warship arrived in Japan this month to join efforts to police United Nations sanctions imposed on North Korea over its nuclear and missile programs.

The support includes committing a maritime patrol aircraft and approximately 40 personnel to the region to help "ensure effective implementation of UNSC sanctions on North Korea", according to the statement.

The Yomiuri ShimbunU.S., Australian and Canadian forces' patrol planes will use the U.S. Kadena Air Base in Okinawa Prefecture as a home base from which to monitor North Korean smuggling via ship-to-ship transfers of items such as refined petroleum products on the high seas in the East China Sea, the foreign and defense ministries announced Saturday.

Davidson delivers as White Sox outlast Royals
While Lopez has not allowed more than four hits or two runs in his first four starts, he is winless, 0-2 with a 1.50 ERA. Chicago has covered the spread four times in its last seven games and the total has gone over in three of those seven.

However, US President Donald Trump, who is also set to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, said he would maintain pressure on Pyongyang through sanctions that were imposed in a bid to rein in the North's missile and nuclear programmes.

The plan called for closer monitoring of vessels suspected of transporting banned weapons components and other prohibited cargo going in and out of North Korea. The observed transfer was the third such incident reported by Japan that month.

Addressing reporters in Sydney on Saturday, the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull confirmed that the P-8A Poseidon surveillance aircraft is bound for a US facility in Japan.

Australia deployed its military plane to Japan on the task, merely a day after historic talks were held between the leaders of North and South Korea - leading to the declaration of denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
