  • Haley: 'Plenty' of military options available for dealing with North Korea

Ultimately, the United States needs to not only deter North Korea, but also to reassure Japan and South Korea that they will neither be abandoned by their ally nor entrapped in a wider conflict precipitated by America's own independent strategic decisions.

And while the first two may be familiar in USA post-war diplomacy, the third is a loaded term in global relations, hinting at Trump's "America First" agenda. He said President Donald Trump had been fully briefed on the event.

Mattis told reporters on his way to Mexico that as a result of the North Korean missile test, tens of millions of Japanese people were seen going into duck and cover, which was the second time that they've had to do that since World War II. That plan seeks to set the stage for a resumption of talks after Pyongyang suspends its nuclear and ballistic missile activity and the US and South Korea suspend their joint military exercises. And he comes out with USA being very strong in the end. North Korea is closer than ever to its goal of building a military arsenal that can viably target both USA troops in Asia and the American homeland.

The South Korean military responded to the provocation from the North by launching a Hyunmoo-II missile into the sea that traveled the distance it would take to reach the Sunan airfield in Pyongyang, according to a military spokesman.

The emergency meeting of Security Council was convened at the request of Japan and the US.

"If North Korea continues to walk down this path, it has no bright future".

Kaspersky Banned in US Federal Agencies
In the Russian embassy in the United States , the ban on using Kaspersky Anti-Virus was called a continuation of russophobia. Homeland Security says it fears Russian Federation could gain access to info that would put US national security at risk.

The latest missile test raises therefore important questions about the credibility of United States extended deterrence and the protective strategic umbrella that America provides to Japan and South Korea. That missile flew more than 2,700 kilometers at a maximum altitude of about 550 kilometers. Russian Federation is the largest employer of North Korean forced labor. North Korea has launched dozens of missiles under Kim Jong Un's leadership to accelerate a weapons programme created to give it the ability to target the United States with a powerful, nuclear-tipped missile.

"We call on all nations to take new measures against the Kim [Jong Un] regime", the top USA diplomat said. Now, however, with North Korea perilously close to being able to directly threaten USA cities with nuclear obliteration, the worry for some is that Pyongyang could blackmail Washington into qualifying or limiting its support for its allies in the region. "China and Russian Federation must indicate their intolerance for these reckless missile launches by taking direct actions of their own", Tillerson demanded. And he wants to slash US financial contributions to the U.N. Richard Gowan is a U.N. expert with the European Council on Foreign Relations.

In a unanimous statement backed by China, the council said the launch was carried out just three weeks after a first missile overflew Japan and less than two weeks after Pyongyang's sixth and biggest nuclear test.

The Trump administration is also shrinking the size of the diplomatic delegation at this year's United Nations summit.

"The Trump administration intends to change that". Washington has tried to work with Beijing to restrain the latter's ally in Pyongyang through economic sanctions.

"There is a military option".
