Nuclear Crisis: Trump gives condition for N/Korea talk

"If this goes to a military solution it is going to be tragic on an unbelievable scale, and so our effort is to work with the United Nations, work with China, work with Japan, work with South Korea to try to find a way out of this situation", Mattis said at a news conference. The North has ignored calls to curb its weapons programmes, defending them as necessary to counter USA hostility.

Its latest ballistic missile launch, in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions, was on Sunday which it said was a test of its capability to carry a "large-size heavy nuclear warhead", drawing Security Council condemnation. "The Unification Ministry has considered options on this internally but nothing has been decided yet".

According to experts, North Korea's latest missile test is the most significant advancement in the regime's nuclear weapons program to date.

But Pyongyang vows to continue its nuclear and missile programs, saying it needs to counter US aggression.

A rap group backed by China's government is warning South Korea in a music video that "you're going too far" with the deployment of a US missile defense system, as Beijing seeks to bring its state-supported cultural forces to bear in the worldwide dispute.

U.S. Disarmament Ambassador Wood said China was key given that 90 percent of North Korea's trade was with that country.

Speaking in Beijing this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow was against North Korea's nuclear programme, but that the world should talk to Pyongyang instead of threatening it.

President Moon Jae-in took office last week with pledges to seek a dual-track approach to push for North Korea's denuclearization and dialogue with it.

Ramos said: "Not only do they have Alves, they also have Pipa (Higuain), (Mario) Mandzukic, (Giorgio) Chiellini.sparks are going to fly".

The missile launch was detected by new THAAD anti-missile system installed in South Korea, which is equipped radar that Raytheon claims can track a baseball hit out of a park from hundreds of miles away. "Absolutely, sanctions is something that we are looking at and we are going to continue to see where that takes us".

State media reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the test launch of the missile. Find us on Facebook too!

Haley said a plan is still in the works between the US, Japan, South Korea and China - North Korea's only major ostensible ally - to halt North Korea's progress on nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. If North Korea cooperates the USA could possibly support reduction in sanctions.

"If you are a country that is supplying or supporting North Korea, we will call you out on it".

The Security Council adopted two sanctions resolutions past year to ramp up pressure on Pyongyang and deny leader Kim Jong Un the hard currency needed to fund his military programmes. "We will never tolerate such North Korean provocations and nuclear threats", he added.

But Lee also said South Korean officials at Panmunjom have been "making phone calls on a daily basis to the North but the North has not responded".

Mr Trump has warned that a "major, major conflict" with North Korea was possible, and sent the Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group to Korean waters for drills with South Korea and Japan. Pyongyang hailed as a success the launch that was aimed at testing its missiles' ability to carry a heavy warhead, a measure it says it needs to counter USA hostility.
