N Korea says 'don''t mess with us' as USA plans next move

So is the United States on the brink of war with North Korea?

It was a day after a huge military parade in Pyongyang, which also marked the 105th birth anniversary of Kim Il Sung. Siti Aisyah, from Indonesia, and Doan Thi Huong of Vietnam are the only suspects in custody in the February 13 killing of Kim, the estranged half brother of North Korea's ruler.

The Malaysian Government's diplomatic efficiency in resolving the crisis with North Korea following the murder of Kim Jong-nam, the estranged half-brother of the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, is seen as a rare and remarkable feat. He was treated to a full choral performance, followed by the airing on a massive monitor of the latest in North Korean propaganda videos.

North Korea said in February that it had successfully tested a new type of medium- to long-range ballistic missile, the Pukguksong-2, propelled by a solid-fuel engine. And a day later it conducted a failed missile test, which drew worldwide condemnation. The four-minute video, backed by a musical score reminiscent of U.S. TV Westerns of the 1960s, includes a mushroom cloud and an American flag going up in flames.

President Donald Trump says that how much North Korea's leader desires peace will be a deciding factor in easing tensions between it and the United States.

"All 296 North Koreans have or will leave Malaysia in stages", the department said.

Guterres singled out the countries "in the front line" of contacts with North Korea - the U.S., China, South Korea, Russia and Japan - and said everybody involved should "make sure that everything is done for the threat represented by the development in relation to missiles and in relation to the potential for nuclear capability not to become a threat to the worldwide community".
