Rodong Sinmun, North Korea's official newspaper, said the volunteers had offered to join or rejoin the People's Army after the Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) issued a statement on Monday condemning new sanctions imposed by the United Nations in retaliation for North Korean missile tests.

According to the paper, about 3.47 million people, including students and retired soldiers, asked the authorities to enlist them in the military.

Speaking with Mr. Rose during his trip to Germany, Mr. Obama also said that USA forces were now reanalyzing the strategic positioning of America's missile defense systems.

Meanwhile, it's been apparent for a year or two that measures to permanently derail North Korea's program to develop nuclear arms, including an intercontinental capability, won't work.
