  • 'All options' on table after NKorea missile launch over Japan: Trump

Tensions on the Korean peninsula have been high since last month when North Korea threatened to launch missiles into the sea near the strategically located U.S. Pacific territory of Guam after Trump said Pyongyang would face "fire and fury" if it threatened the United States. "Talking is not the answer!".

Song spoke about the possibility of nukes in the South as he met with defence chief General James Mattis and White House security adviser HR McMaster. "We continue to work together, and the minister and I share a responsibility to provide for the protection of our nations, our populations and our interests".

At a press conference alongside Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe, the Prime Minister said the United Kingdom condemned the latest missile launch in the "strongest terms possible".

North Korea, by shooting a missile over Japan earlier this week, showed again that it has "zero interest in negotiation", and it's time for China to quit lecturing the United States about the need to calm down, former Ambassador Christopher Hill said Thursday.

"From the U.K.in the European Union exit negotiation, there has to be transparency and predictability to minimize any damage on businesses", Abe told an audience of Japanese and British executives. It says its weapons programmes are needed to counter USA aggression.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has weighed into the North Korea crisis, warning the U.S. and others against going down a "dead-end road" and calling for talks to resolve the issue.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has told US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson by phone that any further strengthening of sanctions against North Korea would be counter-productive.

US President Donald Trump agreed with South Korean President Moon Jae-in to revise a joint treaty capping the development of the South's ballistic missiles, Moon's office said on Saturday, amid a standoff over North Korea's missile and nuclear tests.

The UN Security Council (UNSC) is due to hold an emergency session Tuesday afternoon over the North's latest missile launch at the request of Washington and Tokyo, diplomats said.

"The F-35 embodies our commitment to our allies and contributes to the overall security and stability of the Indo-Asia Pacific region", said Marine Corps Lt. Gen. David H. Berger, commander, U.S. The aid was part of a nuclear deal that North Korea later violated. North Korea condemns the annual U.S. "Millions of lives at stake not a game". The North regularly threatens to destroy the South and its main ally, the United States.

The move has come in response to the recent missile tests by the North Korean regime headed by Kim Jong-un, Efe news reported on Thursday.

Questions remain over whether Pyongyang has miniaturized its weapons and whether it has a working hydrogen bomb.

The UNSC on Tuesday strongly condemned North Korea's firing of the ballistic missile, calling it an "outrageous" threat.
