  • USA must act fast on deterring North Korea

China, the North's main ally, said it opposed North Korea's "launch activities that run counter to Security Council resolutions and the common wishes of the worldwide community".

"We are not your enemy. but you are presenting an unacceptable threat to us, and we have to respond". We are gonna be able to handle them.

A Republican senator said Tuesday that US President Donald Trump has told him he would go to war to destroy North Korea rather than allow it to develop a long-range nuclear-armed missile. "If there's going to be a war to stop them, it will be over there".

The two leaders did not discuss military action against North Korea, nor what would constitute the crossing of a "red line" by Pyongyang, a spokesman for the Japanese government said.

Haley released a statement denying that the US was seeking to form an emergency session at the U.N. She said that it would be useless and even counterproductive to further sanction the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un without action. (Trump has) has told me that.

Analysts said Friday's test proved that a broader part of the mainland US, including Los Angeles, was within range of North Korea missiles.


But in early July she told the Security Council that if it is united, the global community can cut off major sources of hard currency to North Korea, restrict oil to its military and weapons programs, increase air and maritime restrictions, and hold senior officials accountable.

Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said that "the role that China can play" in the standoff was "extremely important". They do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk.

Despite those problems, he said "we have a lot of tremendous things going" - including the booming stock market, low unemployment and business enthusiasm.

On Saturday, North Korea said that it conducted another successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Friday. Trump did not hint at what actions he could take on Monday, but recent comments suggest he could take more steps to try to get China to act.

The US supremo has accused China of doing little to convince Kim Jong-un to give up his nuclear weapons programme, despite its position as the Hermit Kingdom's only major ally.

He said other options were "not particularly attractive".
