Trump, Turnbull talk North Korea, floods

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Tuesday Sept. 5 2017 that an escalation of tension between North Korea and the United States could cause a global catastrophe

He has called it "horrible" and blamed it for the US trade deficit with South Korea.

A United States military action will not be the first option against North Korea for its ongoing nuclear ballistic missile program tests, President Donald Trump said Wednesday. Trump's comments came during his telephonic conversation with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping to discuss the situation in the Korean Peninsula after North Korea carried out its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date.

'President Xi would like to do something. We ll see whether or not he can do it.

"We'll see what happens". 'I believe that President Xi agrees with me 100 percent.

War is 'certainly not our first choice, ' he said in response to a shouted question, 'but we will see what happens'. "But we will not be putting up with what s happening in North Korea", Trump said.

The US has urged China, which is the North's main trading partner, to put more pressure on the reclusive nation to limit his controversial missile programme.

In an early morning tweet Tuesday, Trump said, "I am allowing Japan & South Korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States".

Trump, who has made rewriting trade deals a top priority, has sharply criticized the deal with South Korea, which was signed by President George W. Bush and finalized under President Obama.

Putin denounced North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear bomb test on Sunday, saying Russian Federation did not recognize its nuclear status.

President Donald Trump has spoken with the leaders of Britain and Australia about North Korea's latest nuclear test.

The US wants the Security Council to impose an oil embargo on North Korea, ban the country's exports of textiles and the hiring of North Korean labourers overseas and subject leader Kim Jong Un to an asset freeze and travel ban, according to a draft resolution seen by Reuters on Wednesday.

Last month, Trump's chief trade negotiator, Robert Lighthizer, held a daylong meeting by video with South Korea's trade minister, Kim Hyun-chong, and there have been subsequent discussions between officials to resolve complaints that Korea has not fulfilled its commitment to open up its services market, among other issues.
