Trump to meet leaders of Japan
North Korea fired an intermediate-range missile over Japan, a United States ally, early Thursday morning, which the UN Security Council said was "highly provocative" and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe condemned as threatening to world peace.
North Korea's most recent test of an intermediate range ballistic missile flew 2,300 miles, making it capable of reaching the US territory of Guam.
China and Russian Federation, two countries critics say are economic enablers of North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, have claimed that Pyongyang's weapons development should be addressed through dialogue, not additional sanctions.
The UNSC referred to the latest launch as a "manifest violation" of Security Council resolutions that comes less than two weeks after the DPRK conducted a test of a nuclear device on 3 September and only three days after the Security Council unanimously adopted fresh sanctions against the country.
"America and our allies will never be intimidated".
U.S. President Donald Trump and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in have agreed to toughen sanctions against North Korea in a bid to curb the North's nuclear ambitions.
And Trump tweets that he's asked Moon about "Rocket Man" - an apparent reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon). "We will defend our people, our nations, and our civilization, from all who dare to threaten our way of life".
Seoul and Washington will seek "stronger, and more practical" measures against North Korea, South Korea's presidential office said Sunday.
Speaking at Joint Base Andrews, the Air Force installation outside Washington on Friday, Trump declared that American military options were robust should they be required to respond to threats from Pyongyang.
"Our final goal is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the USA and make the US rulers dare not talk about military option for the DPRK", leader Kim Jong-un reportedly said.
"There is a military option", H.R. McMaster said during a press briefing at the White House, flanked by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. "So, having said that, I have no problem with kicking it to (Defense Secretary James) Mattis because I think he has plenty of options".
The increasing levels of sanctions will cut off 90 percent of North Korea's trade.
"We've got to talk", DeLury told Fox News. North Korea also has the world's largest standing army.
During the 25-minute call, Trump and Moon condemned the latest missile launch by North Korea, pledging to work with the global community to implement the latest UN Security Council resolution.
