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

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

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 USA and its Asian allies, Kim doesn't appeared to be backing down.

"We've got to talk", DeLury told Fox News.

North Korea's leaders have repeatedly said they need nuclear weapons to defend themselves against "hostile" United States forces, 35,000 of which are stationed in South Korea. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbours and for the entire world community", he said.

And there's little sign that talks involving the U.S., North Korea and other interested countries can be arranged amid the nearly weekly barrage of weapons tests and threats, let alone stop the North's determined nuclear march.

North Korea will be high on the agenda during the U.N. General Assembly session in NY this coming week. Only now, the threat is heightened.

Guterres will be discussing the situation on the Korean Peninsula with all concerned parties in the margins of the upcoming high level week of the UN General Assembly.

"We've been kicking the can down the road, and we're out of road", H.R. McMaster, Trump's national security adviser, told reporters on Friday.

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

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido Friday local time, the latest in a stream of missile tests that have looked to defy the worldwide community. New U.N. sanctions cut oil exports to North Korea. But the North has ignored countless global reproaches previously.

Pyongyang says it needs nuclear weapons to protect itself from "hostile" U.S. forces and is determined to build a weapons system capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to hit the USA mainland.

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

Moon also stressed the need to strengthen South Korea's military capabilities as well as those of the South Korea-US alliance.

Trump said America and its allies will never be intimidated.

Nikki Haley says North Korea will be "destroyed" if it continues with what she describes as "reckless" behavior.

The UN Security Council on Friday strongly condemned North Korea´s "highly provocative" missile launch and demanded Pyongyang immediately halt such actions - but did not threaten further sanctions.

Lisa Collins, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said other nations will be watching the United States at the U.N. next week to determine Trump's next steps.

Recall that a day after fresh sanctions by the UN Security Council was slammed on North Korea, the pariah nation declared that the U.S. will "suffer the greatest pain" over its role in the imposition of the sanctions. And right now, I don't have any more forensics on it.
