So what kind of economic base does it take to build these things?

I think it's illegal to ship in microprocessors, so computing power is extremely limited, given how complex a modern semiconductor plant actually is.

So what do they use for fuel? NH4ClO4/aluminum? N2H2/N2O4? O2/H2? How do they get the supplies for all these rockets?

Making yellowcake from pitchblende is a serious pain in the ass. How do they do it? And how do they pay for it? How much can their stunted economy support?

And is it really that hard to just tell the folks in the northern Seoul suburbs to get the fark out of range? SK has the money to compensate them by eminent domain. Move them out, and it takes away Kim's only real playing card.

Just tell Lil' Kim that we're going for a ride in the car to the park and by the time he figures out that we're at the vet it will be too late.
We can get him a pair of "nuketicles" afterwards so he still feels like a man.

I would think that agreed to that before the meeting was scheduled. This was done for the sake of spectacle to show the world that they are both on the same page on this issue.

I can't help but think this is a round-about way of refusing South Korea's recent request for U.S. provided nukes. Now we can just say, "In order to get China's help in denuclearizing NK, we had to agree not to give you nukes as well. Don't you want NK's nukes gone? It's the best thing for everyone in the region."

/I don't support giving SK nukes

I don't support any nation that doesn't already have nukes getting them.

Hell, I don't support the countries that have nukes now having them.   Nuclear weapons should be banned forever for all nations.

Pretty good hijack, but you ended your post by coming back to the original topic.

You really should've concluded with something like "Remember the LIBERTY" or "Tatsuma is a war criminal"

Remember, we got the Apollo astronauts to the moon and back without microprocessors.  The Voyager space mission happened on computing power more primitive than what North Korea currently has.  If with late 1970s computing power we could launch two probes to Jupiter, then Saturn, then Uranus and then Neptune before flinging them outside of the solar system, then why can't North Korea, using 286 processor use a missile to hit Japan or South Korea?  Secondly, if Kim Jong Un has the money, some nation will sell him the yellowcake he needs for his warhead.  What does Iran care if North Korea pays them $100 million for some yellow cake material to start a mess that would bring the U.S. into a potential war in Asia?  Especially if that causes the U.S. to pull troops out of the middle east.  As for the fuel, if Kim Jong Un can buy yellowcake from another nation, then why not buy rocket fuel as well?

Your opinion about diplomats may be true when a journalist calls up an embassy and asks for that nation's position on something.

This is an agreement between nations. The diplomats are representing what their respective governments want. There are no surprises, there is either an agreement or no agreement. The agreement may be a statement, a policy, or a treaty. But it is an agreement. No nation would be served by a diplomat agreeing to something that was not already authorized by their government.

My guess for their rocket motors would be the same type we used in the space shuttle solid rocket boosters

The chemicals are easy to make or get, and the composition is safe from explosion once cast into the motor casing.  The fabrication process is safe enough that high-power rocket enthusiasts have scratch-built their own motors (and vehicles) to send payloads to over 100 km altitudes.

North Korea should have no problem building this type of motor to any scale they want.  Use a throttleable liquid-fuel upper stage for final trajectory alignment.

They've already put a (seemingly inoperative) satellite in a good orbit.  Their ICBM technoligy is here to stay.
