Krauthammer: With North Korea, We Do Have Cards to Play

"Gotta behave", President Donald Trump warned North Korea this week.

"Russia and China are members of the six-party talks [on North Korea] and also members of the UN Security Council, so their role is important".

Speaking on the deck of a massive United States aircraft carrier on Wednesday, Pence cautioned North Korea against testing the resolve of the USA military.

China's air force has put its land-attack, cruise-missile-capable bombers "on high alert" in response to a potential situation in North Korea, a U.S. defence official has been quoted as saying.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres separately said "everything" must be done to confront the threat from North Korea and ensure that its missile and nuclear programs do not pose an global threat.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has said he would expand America's nuclear arsenal to ensure it is at the "top of the pack" amid a heated war of words between the USA and North Korea.

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, on a visit to London, has said that the military option must be a part of the pressure brought to bear.

The North conducted two nuclear bomb tests and 24 ballistic missile tests last year, defying six Security Council sanctions resolutions banning any testing, and it has conducted additional missile tests this year, including one on Saturday that failed. Instead, it should crack down on the foreign financial dealings of North Korean officials and companies and the foreign states that help them.

He said the United States wanted peace and he hoped North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un wanted the same, adding that would be "the end determination".

The North also tried but failed to launch what US and South Korean officials said was a medium-range missile.

Just a few days ago, Beijing condemned US plans to deploy a new missile system in South Korea. The day before, it became known that the Pentagon intends to test its own missile defence systems to see their ability to shoot down North Korean missiles.
