Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

The White House says that Trump " in a phone call Friday to President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) " saluted Xi for China's United Nations vote to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea.

Trump raised alarm around the world - and particularly in Asia - by warning that North Korea would face "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it were to keep threatening the US.

Soderberg criticizes the president's lack of diplomacy and she personally wishes that the worldwide community increase pressure on North Korea rather than use outright force. For one, they didn't want to put somebody in a corner. Washington has repeatedly called on Beijing to do more against its ally north korea.

During a call Saturday morning (local time, Friday night time american), Mr. Xi has called on the parties to the "restraint" and to "persist in the general direction of the dialogue, negotiations and a political settlement", said chinese State television CCTV.

Will North Korea rain on Wall Street's endless summer?
The dollar was down 0.53 per cent against the yen at ¥109.48 (RM4.30), after briefly dropping as low as ¥109.53. South Korean stocks extended losses late Thursday morning as North Korea risks weighed on the main index.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump had claimed that North Korea would "fire and anger" of the United States if ever the threats of Pyongyang continued. China is the North's biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can't compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs.

US President Donald Trump on Saturday held a phone conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, stressing that the United States is ready to apply all available measures, including the military ones, to settle the North Korean nuclear issue, the White House said.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he will do everything he can to protect the Japanese people as tensions escalate over North Korean plans to send missiles flying over Japan toward Guam.

This week, Trump has issued stern warnings to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. "I think he's there mentally".
