No Good Options with North Korea

What was said to be the launch of a Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile ICBM in North Korea's northwest

Kim also said North Korea "would neither put its nukes and ballistic rockets on the table of negotiations in any case nor flinch even an inch from the road of bolstering the nuclear force chosen by itself unless the United States hostile policy and nuclear threat to the DPRK are definitely terminated", the Korean Central News Agency reported.

"I am ready to meet with Chairman Kim Jong Un of North Korea at any time at any place, if the conditions are met and if it will provide an opportunity to transform the tension and confrontation on the Korean Peninsula".

South Korean F-15 and F-16 fighter jets joined the two US bombers in the simulated attack on the North Korean targets, according to the air force.

Kim Jong Un was seen smoking a cigarette beside experimental engines on North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missile before it was launched.

A South Korean military official said the missile may have a range of 6,000 kilometers (3,730 miles) - potentially within reach of the USA state of Alaska.

Though United States officials claim the missile poses no threat to the USA, other experts believe it may have the range to reach Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, Reuters reported.

Trump added: "They are behaving in a very, very unsafe manner and something will have to be done". "But here, one must not lose his cool, but rather act in a pragmatic and delicate manner", said Putin during a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-In. For years, it has sought to develop an ICBM capable of putting USA cities within striking distance. "Right now that's why we're called ... the sentinels for this country". They also urged South Korea and the United States to avoid large-scale military drills, saying a military solution should not become an option.

But North Korea state-owned newspaper Rodong Sinmun dismissed his threats as "American-style bluffing and arbitrariness" in an article published today.

US President Donald Trump had called on all nations to confront the "global threat" of North Korea and pledged that Pyongyang will face repercussions over its recent ballistic missile launch.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Wednesday she would propose new U.N. sanctions on North Korea.

For China, the worst-case scenario is a collapse of the regime in Pyongyang, which could see an influx of refugees from its impoverished neighbor, and worse yet, US troops stationed on its border in a united Korea.

"Our self-restraint holds, and diplomatic efforts remain underway as we speak, " he said, adding, however, that diplomatic and economic efforts remained the tools of choice to convince North Korea to stop its nuclear and missile programmes. Each of those leaders have spoken out against North Korea's provocations, and Trump has leaned on China in particular to rein in the rogue regime but acknowledged recently that it's not working.

China has long resisted intensifying economic pressure on neighboring North Korea, in part out of fear of the instability that could mount on its doorstep, including the possibility of millions of North Koreans fleeing into China. Duda for his part said he believed Trump took Poland's security seriously.
