Trump says US is ready to act alone on North Korea

North Korea Preps Up For Sixth Nuke Test; Ex-CIA Director On Potential EMP Attack

Asked if he would consider a "grand bargain" in which China pressured Pyongyang in return for a guarantee the United States would later remove troops from the Korean peninsula, the newspaper quoted Trump as saying: "Well if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will".

Detrani, who was the US mission manager for North Korea, said, "the recent successful test of an intermediate-range ballistic missile capable of reaching Guam - a system that is solid-fueled and mobile - speaks to the technical advances North Korea's made with its missile delivery systems". "So we hope that we get as many foreign ministers to come as possible", Haley told a news conference to mark Washington's presidency of the Security Council for April.

Speaking in response to a question regarding North Korea's participation at the Olympics, ministry spokesman Lee Duk-haeng said there were no sanctions in place that prevented them from taking part. She spoke about her focus on cutting and streamlining United Nations peacekeeping missions and examining human rights violations as key to conflict prevention when the USA takes over the Security Council presidency in April.

Former US defence secretary Ash Carter, who served under Barack Obama, said the US has "always had all options on the table".

HORSLEY: The two leaders are expected to talk not only about trade, but also North Korea which continues to develop both nuclear weapons and missiles that might one day deliver a warhead to the western United States.

Tensions have escalated over North Korean moves to accelerate its weapons development.

United Nations resolutions have failed so far to deter North Korea from conducting nuclear and missile tests.

"The only country that can stop North Korea is China and they know that", Ambassador Nikki Haley told ABC in an interview broadcast on Sunday.


"Prove it! Prove it!" "I know China says they're anxious about North Korea".

"If turning up the heat involves more-effective implementation of the [U.N] sanctions, the North Koreans will take notice, because we do know that this regime, the regime of the Kim family, ultimately cares about its fundamental strategic objective, which is its own survival", said Greg Scarlatoiu, executive director of the D.C. -based Committee for Human Rights in North Korea. Despite that, China last month suspended imports of North Korean coal for the rest of the year, depriving Kim Jong Un's regime of a crucial source of foreign currency, though Haley's comments indicated that Beijing is allowing imports in other ways.

Trump has said he wants US companies to stop investing in China and instead create jobs at home.

"If they do, that will be very good for China, and if they don't, it won't be good for anyone".

Donald Trump has warned that the United States will take unilateral action to eliminate the nuclear threat from North Korea unless China increases pressure on the regime in Pyongyang.

On Syria, she said the Trump administration thinks President Bashar Assad is "a hindrance" to ending the war but "our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out".

A North Korea sports delegation is now in South Korea to take part in an worldwide ice hockey competition in Gangneung, which will host some events during the 2018 Games. "And the fact that we want action". Johnson says what happens next is hard to predict.

The U.S. has tried to deal sincerely with North Korea over the course of more than 20 years and four presidential administrations, the senior administration official said.
