North Korea 'moving missile towards west coast'

North Korea 'moving missile towards west coast'

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley had a warning for North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.

Even before President Trump tweeted Tuesday about plans to allow "a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated" equipment for Japan and South Korea, the White House sent a request to the State Department for an assessment of how best to expedite the authorization of such sales as a way to combat Pyongyang's recent missile and nuclear tests, sources say.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke with US President Donald Trump on Monday and agreed to lift current restrictions on the payload weight of South Korea's ballistic missiles, according to a South Korean presidential spokesman.

"Mrs May said Britain would work with the USA and worldwide partners to continue to exert economic pressure on North Korea through further measures including sanctions". And I also want to put up a picture that the North Koreans put out yesterday, and it shows Kim, they said, expecting what they believe - they say was a nuclear warhead to be put on a ballistic missile.

Trump has previously vowed to stop North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and said he would unleash "fire and fury" if Pyongyang threatened USA territory. Mr. Trump's latest Twitter threat against nations doing business with North Korea is clearly targeted at China, the only regime with some degree of influence - though it is not clear exactly how much - over the North Korean regime.

"If we fail to stop North Korea's provocations now, it could sink into an uncontrollable situation", Moon said in opening remarks before a meeting with Putin in Vladivostok, Russia.

North Korea on Sunday triggered global alarm with by far its most powerful atomic test to date, claiming it was a hydrogen bomb that could be mounted onto a long-range missile.

Russian Federation has rebuffed USA calls for new United Nations sanctions while Washington has promised its allies advanced weaponry. Trump noted China's "essential role" and pledged more communication with China "to find a solution as early as possible", Xinhua (shihn-wah) reports.

"It is regrettable that the DPRK leadership, by its actions aimed at undermining the global non-proliferation regime, poses a serious threat to peace and security on the Korean peninsula and on a global scale".

According to a readout released by the White House, the leaders "condemned North Korea's latest provocative and destabilizing action and noted North Korea's current path is unsafe to the world and not in its own interest". Beijing fears that completely cutting off North Korea could lead to its collapse, unleashing a wave of refugees into China's northeast.

"We will not be putting up with what's happening in North Korea", Mr Trump told reporters after the conversation.

Trump also reaffirmed his commitment to defending the homeland, territories, and allies of the United States, using all available diplomatic and military capabilities, said the statement.
