North Korea seeks military 'equilibrium' with US

Nikki Haley Trump will 'slap' foes in first UN speech

That could include single-handed sanctions on countries that do any trade whatsoever with North Korea, as Trump has said.

If North Korea continues its provocative behavior, Haley suggested the US would have to take matters into its own hands. "And we all know that".

She said war is undesirable but added that "something has got to be done" if North Korea continues to threaten the US and its allies. Where North Korea was irresponsible and reckless, we were using every diplomatic possibility we could do. It was the second time North Korea fired a missile over Japan, and follows days after the country's sixth and largest nuclear test to date.

Mr Kim said the country's final goal is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the United States and make the USA rulers dare not talk about military option for the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea).

On North Korea's nuclear and missile development, McMaster said at a press conference: "This is not an issue between the United States and North Korea. Too bad!" Trump tweeted, apparently finding a new nickname for Kim (McMaster confirmed that that was probably Trump's intention).

"For those who have said, and been commenting about a lack of a military option, there is a military option". "So, having said that, I have no problem with kicking it to (Defense Secretary James) Mattis because I think he has plenty of options".

US President Donald Trump has called North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "Rocket Man", amid increasing tensions between Washington and Pyongyang.

The pair would continue talks next week at a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, the White House said.
