As Beijing apparently gets closer to matching Washington and other powers in weapons technology, China is having a parade this week that might show off its rapidly developing arsenal, which may include a nuclear-capable missile that could reach the United States in 30 minutes.
The Dongfeng 41 is one of a series of new weapons Chinese media said might be unveiled during the parade marking the ruling Communist Party’s 70th anniversary in power. Others included a supersonic drone and a robot submarine.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited United States President Donald Trump to visit Pyongyang in a letter sent in August, a South Korean newspaper reported on Monday, citing diplomatic sources.
The letter, the second Trump received from Kim last month amid stalled denuclearisation talks between the two countries, pre-dated North Korea’s latest launch of short-range projectiles a week ago.
In the second letter, which was passed to Trump in the third week of August, Kim spoke of his willingness to meet Trump for another summit, one source reportedly told the Joongang Ilbo newspaper.
Neither the White House, the US State Department or the North Korean mission to the United Nations responded to Reuters’ requests for comment.

Washington (CNN)In a previously undisclosed secret mission in 2017, the United States successfully extracted from Russia one of its highest-level covert sources inside the Russian government, multiple Trump administration officials with direct knowledge told CNN.
A person directly involved in the discussions said that the removal of the Russian was driven, in part, by concerns that President Donald Trump and his administration repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.The decision to carry out the extraction occurred soon after a May 2017 meeting in the Oval Office in which Trump discussed highly classified intelligence with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak. The intelligence, concerning ISIS in Syria, had been provided by Israel.
