Trump, South Korean leader discuss North Korea, 'Rocket Man'

US options on North Korea effective and overwhelming Trump

A trio of missile launches and a hydrogen bomb test that is the communist nation's most powerful to date.

But despite pressure from the US and its Asian allies, Kim doesn't appeared to be backing down. They plan to meet this week at the U.N. General Assembly.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson demanded Thursday that China use its role as the main exporter of oil to North Korea to force Kim to abandon his nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has one again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors, and the entire world community".

The Security Council also reiterated the importance of maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in north-east Asia at large, and expressed its commitment to a peaceful, diplomatic and political solution to the situation, welcoming efforts by Council members, as well as other States, to facilitate a peaceful and comprehensive solution through dialogue.

North Korea conducted its latest missile test on Friday. North Korea is closer than ever to its goal of building a military arsenal that can viably target both USA troops in Asia and the American homeland.

The United States has not ruled out military options against North Korea, President Donald Trump's national security adviser said Friday, after Pyongyang launched another missile over Japan.

"As Kim Jong-Un's most recent launch demonstrates, this is one of the world's most urgent and risky security problems", he added.

The threat was issued by North Korea's ambassador to the UN, while speaking after the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a US-draft resolution slapping new sanctions on his country. But the North has ignored countless global reproaches previously.


"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. "The United Nations, of course, holds tremendous potential to realize its founding ideals, but only if it's run more efficiently and effectively", McMaster said.

Experts have long questioned if the US could indeed attack North Korea, given its ability to cause massive casualties south of the border.

Trump has also threatened "fire and fury" in response to North Korea's threats.

Trump said America and its allies will never be intimidated.

Trump's United Nations envoy called North Korea "reckless".

The worldwide community has attempted to increase pressure on North Korea in recent weeks in response to its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3.

"I think foreign leaders expect Trump to have some harsh words for the United Nations", said Richard Gowan, a United Nations expert with the European Council on Foreign Relations. "Hopefully there will be coordination with allies on their policy lines before he adds anything to the speech about North Korea".
