DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 9, 2017, 5:32 PM (IDT)

The Chinese proposal for North Korea to suspend nuclear and missile programs while the US and South Korea pause military exercises was rejected by Washington Thursday as “not a viable deal.” US State Department acting spokesman Mark Toner said US efforts to engage Pyongyang had “fallen short” and the US was looking for new ways “to convince them, to persuade them, that it’s in their interests.” US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the world was “not dealing with a rational person” in the North Korean leader but “unbelievable, irresponsible arrogance.”  Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi compared the US and North Korea to two speeding trains that are set for a head on collision.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
