Landmark talks between Kim and US President Donald Trump are planned for May.

The powerful Defence Committee urged a boost in Defence spending to avert tubby tyrant Kim Jong-un's nuclear ambitions becoming reality.

Chinese officials were not immediately able to comment. Based on the tests, experts said that North Korea could probably get a missile to hit the United States - but still lacked the technology to carry a heavy nuclear warhead that far.

Since 2008, photographer Eric Lafforgue ventured to North Korea six times.

The report suggested Kim could be "dissuaded" from using nuclear weapons - adding the leader was "ruthless. but rational".

Kim's predecessors, grandfather Kim Il-sung and father Kim Jong-il, both promised not to pursue nuclear weapons but secretly maintained programs to develop them, culminating in the North's first nuclear test in 2006 under Kim Jong-il.

Chair Julian Lewis said: "The nuclear and cyber threats posed by North Korea are typical of the new and intensifying dangers confronting the UK".

North Korea could launch a full-blown nuclear strike on the USA as early as July 23, according to a prediction from Britain's Ministry of Defense.

"Kim Jong-un seems to see such weapons as insurance against any threat to his regime's survival", the report noted.

The multilateral talks were held between 2003 and 2007, during which the United States, South Korea, Japan, North Korea, China and Russian Federation met six times to discuss steps toward North Korea denuclearization.

The two Koreas agreed Thursday to hold another preparatory meeting to work out the details of the April 27 summit, which is to take place in the South Korea-controlled side of the border village, Panmunjom.

A government minister gave the assessment to a parliamentary committee earlier this year as part of its efforts to assess Kim Jong Un's ability to precipitate a nuclear war.

The select committee report also covers the cyber threat posed by North Korea - which was blamed for the WannaCry ransomware attack which struck computers at NHS trusts past year.

"Nevertheless, the Wannacry attack highlighted basic vulnerabilities in United Kingdom information technology systems".

"North Korea has shown an utter lack of concern about who gets hurt by such attacks".

North Korea's leader also meet with Chinese premier Xi Jinping in his first foreign visit since taking power.
