Moon, Trump vow stronger pressure on N Korea

The warnings came a day after leader Kim Jong Un vowed to continue the weapons programs, saying North Korea is nearing its goal of "equilibrium" in military force with the United States. Pyongyang's military has conducted three ballistic missile tests since US President Donald Trump told reporters the country would be met with "fire and fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which the world has never seen before" if it kept up threats to the US and its allies. "None of us want war".

"I think that North Korea is not going to give up its program with nothing on the table", she said Sunday.

"If North Korea does not have UDMH, it can not threaten the United States, it's as simple as that", said Sen.

Some doubt Kim - Trump referred to him as "Rocket Man" in Sunday's tweet - will ever agree to give up his arsenal. North Korea also recently tested its most powerful bomb.

The reference to the gas lines was made, evidently, as an allusion to the sanctions imposed last week by the global body on North Korea after Pyongyang's recent missile tests, Efe news reported.

McMaster said Trump's scheduled speech Tuesday at the U.S. General Assembly in NY will "communicate his vision for America's role in the world" in three areas: protecting American people, promoting American prosperity and promoting accountability and sovereignty.

The United States still wants a peaceful solution and has been waiting for the North Koreans to indicate they are ready to talk, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on CBS' "Face the Nation".

Mattis said after Kim tested a hydrogen bomb earlier this month that the USA would answer any threat from the North with a "massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming".

"The two leaders agreed to strengthen cooperation, and exert stronger and practical sanctions on North Korea so that it realizes provocative actions leads to further diplomatic isolation and economic pressure", presidential spokesman Park Soo-hyun said during a televised briefing. And it's expected that the agenda will feature a heavy dose of talks about North Korea, which the U.N. Security Council unanimously slapped with a new set of sanctions earlier this month over its nuclear program. Ed Markey, D-Mass., who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
