Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

Beijing is reluctant to put so much pressure on the regime that it risks collapse.

North Korea has reportedly been threatening to attack the US territory of Guam more than 2,000 miles southeast of North Korea in the Pacific Ocean. Its nuclear weapons are hidden and mobile, and impossible to destroy in a pre-emptive strike.

As diplomats work behind the scenes to prevent Washington's confrontation with Pyongyang escalating into a full scale conflict, President Trump has continued to post a series of inflammatory online remarks - including one where he described America's deadly arsenal of nuclear weapons as being "locked and loaded". South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican, told NBC News that Trump told him that "if thousands die, they're going to die over there".

"They discussed the need to confront the increasingly unsafe situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behavior", the White House said in a statement.

"Trump looks forward to seeing Xi in China later this year, a meeting that will be a very historic event".

Earlier this week, France had praised Trump's "determination" in standing up to Pyongyang.

The European Union's Political and Security Committee will meet Monday in an extraordinary session called by foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini to discuss "possible next steps" on North Korea, according to an emailed statement.

North Korea has lashed back at the USA following President Donald Trump's latest warnings. Trump also said the US was considering tighter sanctions against North Korea. "Nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump".

Venezuela calls Trump military threat 'craziness'
The remarks came shortly after Maduro forcefully warned the USA president that Venezuela "will never give in". Trump declined to give more details about the possibility of USA forces leading an operation in Venezuela .

The harsh rhetoric from Washington and Pyongyang during recent months has exacerbated an already confrontational relationship between our countries, and has probably eliminated any chance of good faith peace talks between the United States and North Korea.

"We just didn't do it in public", she said.

The two leaders also reiterated a commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

"What Trump did is try to rip apart that diplomatic track by trying to immediately wave his own missiles against those of North Korea".
