President Donald Trump will meet the leaders of Japan and South Korea next Thursday in NY for talks on the "urgent" threat posed by North Korea, the White House said.
America's ambassador to the United Nations is raising the prospect of US military action against North Korea if the North continues its missile and nuclear tests.
"Mattis and Onodera agreed that the North Korean provocation called for a strong demonstration of a unified front between the US, Japan, and the Republic of Korea, and agreed on the importance of robust trilateral defence cooperation between the three nations", he said.
President Donald Trump and his top national security advisers said Friday there are military options available for dealing with the North Korea crisis, despite some experts and former Trump allies saying that there are no good options for the region.
"For those ... who have been commenting on a lack of a military option, there is a military option", he said, adding that it would not be the Trump administration's preferred choice.
Kim had told his top officials that the goal of Pyongyang's efforts "is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the U.S. and make the USA rulers dare not talk about military option", according to the nation's state media.
Trump called Kim Jong-un a rocket man as North Korea recently launched many ballistic missiles and also conducted its most powerful nuclear test.
"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. "Now it is not what we would prefer to do", McMaster said. "What we're seeing is they continue to be provocative and reckless". But that's the U.N. of old, says U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.
The increasing levels of sanctions will cut off 90 percent of North Korea's trade.
"Forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about", he said. A new set of United Nations sanctions that even Trump declared a "small step", extensive talks and a rhetorical two-step that leaves them where they have been for years.
During the 25-minute call, Trump and Moon condemned the latest missile launch by North Korea, pledging to work with the worldwide community to implement the latest UN Security Council resolution.
Trump has also threatened "fire and fury" in response to North Korea's threats.
The North has confirmed the missile as an intermediate range Hwasong-12, the same model launched over Japan on August 29. Seoul's aid to Pyongyang was suspended after the latter conducted its fourth nuclear test in January previous year .
