US, S Korea to maximise economic, diplomatic pressure on N Korea

Posted September 20, 2017

The US ambassador to the UN warned North Korea will be destroyed if it continues its "reckless behavior" and forces the United States and its allies to defend themselves against any attack.

Haley told CNN's Dane Bash she would be "perfectly happy" turning things over to U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. "We're trying every other possibility that we have, but there's a whole lot of military options on the table".

Trump's was referring to Moon Jae-in, current leader of South Korea, and Kim Jong Un, the North Korean strongman who has been pursuing the ability to launch missiles at any and all enemies. During an interview with CBS on Sunday, Tillerson said the Trump administration's strategy on Pyongyang involves a (quote) "peaceful pressure campaign", which is aimed at bringing the regime back to the table for constructive and productive dialogue.

Kim has threatened Guam, a US territory in the Pacific, and has fired two missiles over Japan, a USA ally in Asia, including a missile launched on Friday. North Korea also recently tested its most powerful nuclear bomb yet.

Sept 18: Centre tells SC that Rohingya Muslims are "illegal" immigrants in the country and their continued stay posed "serious national security ramifications".

"All they need to do to let us know they're ready to talk is to just stop these tests, stop these provocative actions, and let's lower the threat level and the rhetoric", he said.

"We are out of road because in the past the approach taken to the problem of North Korea and the Kim regime over decades has been to enter into long drawn-out negotiations that then deliver an unsatisfactory agreement - an agreement that then the North Korean regime breaks", McMaster said.

Trump has threatened "fire and fury" in response to North Korea's threats. Haley said that wasn't an empty threat from the president but she declined to describe the president's intentions.

She said: "At this stage we can not know Kim's true intentions - what we do know is that despite the condemnation and the worldwide sanctions, he shows absolutely no sign of voluntarily abandoning his nuclear or missile programmes".

Some experts are skeptical that the North has succeeded in domestic production, given the great difficulty of making and using the highly poisonous fuel, which in far more technically advanced nations has led to giant explosions of missiles and factories.

Today, the chemical is made primarily by China, a few European nations and Russian Federation, which calls it the devil's venom.
