Putin praises Trump's 'serious' economic feats, blasts Russian Federation probe as a 'delirium'

US President Donald Trump speaking with Russian President Vladimir Putin as they attend the APEC Economic Leaders Meeting in Danang Vitenam

A new round of tension around North Korea spiraled on November 29 when Pyongyang carried out a missile launch, the first one since September 15.

Trump also used the call to thank Putin for "acknowledging America's strong economic performance in his annual press conference", according to a White House read out of the call.

Poland's defense minister says a plane crash that killed the nation's president in 2010 in Russia was preceded by two explosions on board, calling on Russian President Vladimir Putin to "take responsibility for what happened".

Expected to miss a month
It looked scary when Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert went down with an injury in Friday's game against the Celtics . Expect more minutes from Ekpe Udoh with Gobert out and an even larger role out of Derrick Favors .

UN studies have said most of Pyongyang's workers toil in China and Russian Federation under a system that forces them to send most of their earnings back to the government in North Korea, which the United States maintains uses the cash to help fund the country's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

"We see some quite serious achievements, even in this short period of time that he's been working", Mr Putin said at his annual press conference in Moscow yesterday. If true, that would contradict Trump's assertion that China is "helping" with the situation.

He emphasised that Russian Federation opposes Pyongyang's nuclear bid, but added the U.S. had "provoked" Pyongyang into developing its nuclear and missile programs by spiking a 2005 deal under which North Korea agreed to halt them. North Korea also started as a Soviet satellite state, so its ties with Russian Federation run deep. Among other issues, the presidents discussed such urgent problems as the North Korean nuclear settlement.

Michigan State Police investigate human remains in case of missing Skelton brothers
Police confirmed the remains were undergoing DNA testing in Texas to determine who the skeletons belonged to. Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner Skelton went missing in November of 2010 and have not been seen since.

Senator Graham said: "I should say there's a three in ten chance we use the military option".

Instead, the United States and North Korea have escalated their exchange of "military rhetoric", Nebenzya said, which, "accompanied by a test of strength by the participants, has led to a situation where around the world people have begun to wonder whether there will be war or not".

North Korea's murderous leader has refused to end his country's nuclear weapons program. Tillerson suggested there would be no nuclear-related preconditions to talks with North Korea, but the White House swiftly rebuked his claim.

Slippery roads during Thursday morning commute
If you missed out on most of the snow that fell on parts of West Michigan Tuesday, chances are you will see it Wednesday . Any snow should exit our eastern suburbs by about 10 p.m. although a few scattered flurries are possible thereafter.

Meanwhile, Japan yesterday said it had added 19 more entities to its list of organisations and individuals targeted by asset-freeze sanctions on North Korea.
