China 'putting pressure' on North Korea

Posted May 06, 2017

The North, defying mounting U.S. pressure, launched its latest missile test on Saturday, which South Korea said failed.

President Donald Trump appeared to give Kim Jong Un credit for leading North Korea after his father's death, calling him a "pretty smart cookie".

Experts say North Korea has readied a nuclear test, which many suspected would take place earlier in April on the anniversary of the country's founder's birth or the foundation of its military.

Analysts say the KN-17 is a new Scud-type missile developed by North Korea.

Tokyo Metro Co. Ltd. stopped services shortly after 6 a.m.as part of measures adopted this month under which services are halted after reports of a North Korean missile launch until confirming that it's safe to operate, Kyodo News said.

Tillerson, in a U.N. Security Council meeting on North Korea on Friday, repeated the Trump administration's position that all options were on the table if Pyongyang persisted with its nuclear and missile development.

The president in an interview that aired Sunday was asked by John Dickerson of CBS for his impression of the North Korean dictator.

"I'd rather not discuss it, " he said.

"Obviously, he's a pretty smart cookie", Trump said. "People are saying, 'Is he sane?' I have no idea, " the president said.

He said Mr Trump had "made clear that he is going to resolve this issue one way or the other, and what we prefer to do is to work with others, China included, to resolve this situation short of military action".

It may mean ratcheting up those sanctions even further.

But unlike previous statements in which Trump and his top officials have touted military action as a way forward, Trump stressed his relationship with China above all other levers in the North Korean conflict on Sunday.

North Korean ballistic missile tests are banned by the United Nations because they are seen as part of the North's push for a nuclear-tipped weapon that can hit the USA mainland.
