South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham speaks about North Korea

The former intelligence director said he was concerned about the US beginning an unnecessary war with North Korea.

President Donald Trump on Monday may roll out a long-expected initiative to direct an investigation into China's trade practices, with a particular emphasis on alleged intellectual property theft, two administration sources told NBC News.

Trump earlier showed no contrition about his remark on Wednesday that aggression by North Korea would be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

Trump's comments came after North Korea conducted more ballistic missile tests and amid reports that the country can now fit a miniaturized nuclear device on a missile.

Yun and Pak are contacting each other through what's known as the "New York channel", which involves USA diplomats talking with their counterparts from the North Korean mission to the UN.

Of all the issues that the USA should be focusing on in Asia and Africa, the focus has been put on North Korea, a tiny blip in the worldwide order that has managed to get under America's egotistical skin.

"I think that's the right call because we can't live as a nation under the threat of nuclear attack from a insane man in North Korea،" Graham added.

But the tension continued Friday when North Korea said Trump was "driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war" with his continued rhetoric.

North Korea's weapons program has developed significantly since then. At a minimum, Pyongyang would renew its long-standing demands for an end to joint U.S. "If you don't believe Trump isn't serious about North Korea you are making a huge mistake because I believe he is serious". -North Korea negotiations collapsed in 2012 when Pyongyang launched a long-range rocket that derailed an agreement of a North Korean nuclear freeze in exchange for US food aid.

He went on to say that the global community must accept that North Korea has a nuclear presence on the global stage. I think there is still time for other measures. Striking a defiant tone on Thursday evening, he told reporters: "Maybe it wasn't tough enough". Warmbier, 22, was held in North Korea for 17 months and returned to the U.S.in a coma.

Neither the White House nor the State Department commented on Yun's communication channel, and a diplomat at North Korea's United Nations mission confirmed to the AP only that the channel had been used to negotiate Warmbier's release.
