Trump warns North Korea against attacking Guam

Kim Jong Un North Korea says Trump talks a load of nonsense

Tensions have escalated between the US and North Korea as the communist regime continues testing and expanding its nuclear program, reporting this week that it can now fit nuclear warheads on missiles.

Macron's statement follows a phone call with Trump Saturday evening.

Calling it "the responsibility of all", Macron called on the worldwide community to "act in a concerted, firm and effective manner, as it has just done in the (U.N.) Security Council, to bring North Korea back to the path of dialogue".

On July 4, after the North test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that could potentially strike the continental US, leader Kim added a new caveat to his refusal to negotiate over its nukes or missiles.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., welcomed Trump's pugnacious approach, arguing that numerous president's critics failed to stop North Korea from developing a nuclear weapon that could hit the United States.

Whatever action Trump decides to take, he must recognise that the stakes - not just for the Korean Peninsula, but also for America's relationship with China - could not be higher.

Trump also informed Jinping of intentions to announce an investigation into Chinese trade practices this week.

The White House said in a statement that Trump and Xi "agreed North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behavior".

But Daniel Russel, until April the top USA diplomat for East Asia, said this so-called NY channel had been a relatively commonplace means of communication with North Korea over the years, and was not a forum for negotiation.

The early US focus was on securing the release of several Americans held in North Korea. "This is tragicomedy of its own making".

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said there are two scenarios that could trigger war with North Korea. The North then threatened to lob missiles near Guam, a tiny US territory some 2,000 miles from Pyongyang.

China calls for end to US-South Korea joint military exercises
Moon said a " red line " would be Pyongyang "completing its ICBM and mounting it with a nuclear warhead and weapoinsing it". He was elected in May after a decade of conservative rule that saw animosity deepen between the rival Koreas.

In a speech delivered on August 6, 1945 after the bombing of Hiroshima, Harry Truman said, "If they do not now accept our terms they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth".

Mr Frydenberg told Sky News that China should use its influence to temper relations and said that US President Donald Trump's reaction to North Korea's threat is justified.

"Sometimes I feel like they fear it but they just don't want to show it, don't want to express it", Martinez said.

"At present, the relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula", Xi was quoted as saying.

Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg says now is the time for China to use its political and economic might to intervene in the increasing tensions between the United States and North Korea.

"Good morning, good morning", the president said to Calvo.

"To prevent such a risky action, the USA in particular needs to unify its own position and messaging", Dill said, "and then at the very least try to establish a crisis hotline or launch notification mechanisms through diplomatic channels to reduce the risk of misperceptions and inadvertent escalation".

The call came after Trump made fresh threats against North Korea on Friday, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded" and warning Kim that he "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against US territories or allies.

Japan says it is deploying the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) system in Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi in western Japan, after North Korea threatened to fire ballistic missiles over the country towards the US Pacific territory of Guam.

But Trump's comments did not appear to be backed by significant military mobilization on either side of the Pacific, and an important, quiet diplomatic channel remained open.
