Beyond the fiery words, U.S. quietly pursues diplomacy with North Korea

He said the president's threat to North Korea was "like pouring gasoline on a fire".

The Associated Press reports that Yun is the only US diplomat in contact with representatives of the North Korean government.

In a statement Saturday, Macron said the situation "undermines the preservation of global peace" and the North Korean regime "poses a serious threat to the security of its neighbors".

It continued, "If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly".

After threatening North Korea with "fire and fury" earlier this week, the president escalated the tension Friday with a tweet that the American arsenal is "locked and loaded". This grim possibility necessarily comes with a question: can the U.S., having attacked North Korea and started a calamitous war, claim it was done in "self defense"?

Trump doubled down Thursday on his warning to North Korea.

Some officials are already try to build a legal case that North Korea is a special case and that United States military action would be justified, which only adds to concerns that a U.S. attack might be forthcoming.

In a press conference Friday afternoon, the president raised the specter of using military force not just against North Korea but also Venezuela: "We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary", Trump said.

President Donald Trump has issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the US military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against USA territories or allies.

"They've been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years, and it's about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries". Warmbier, 22, was held in North Korea for 17 months and returned to the U.S.in a coma.

Despite outrage in the US with Mr Warmbier's treatment and sharp condemnation by President Trump, the US-North Korean interactions in NY continued.

The president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger a US attack against North Korea and "big, big trouble" for its leader, Kim Jong Un. "And I think China will do a lot more".

The State Department did not immediately comment on Mr Yun's diplomacy.

There, Yun learned about the health condition of Otto Warmbier, the young American who had gone to North Korea on a short trip, only to be arrested for allegedly stealing a poster.
