Trump 'ready to resolve North Korea issue one way or another'

"I'd rather not discuss it, " he said.

The statement, which came in response to CNN's questions about the latest launch, did not acknowledge Saturday's missile test. "But eventually, he'll have good missiles". "The time has come for all of us to put new pressure on North Korea to abandon its risky path". He added: "It is a chess game".

"Because developing a nuclear capability has to be matched to a delivery system. I mean, we'll see".

North Korea meanwhile said it has conducted its biggest ever artillery drill and threatened to "bury at sea" the USA aircraft carrier.

"We sternly warn that the North Korean government will continue to face a variety of strong punitive measures issued by the U.N. Security Council and others if it continues to reject denuclearization and play with fire in front of the world", the ministry said.

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday, " McMaster said it is important "for all of us to confront this regime, this regime that is pursuing the weaponization of a missile with a nuclear weapon". "This is something that we know we can not tolerate".

Trump did not say what conditions would need to be met for any such meeting to occur or when it could happen, but the White House said later North Korea would need to meet many conditions before a meeting could be contemplated.

That means, Lt. Gen. McMaster said, working to enforce current United Nations sanctions and perhaps ratcheting them up.

The U.S. and South Korea also started installing a missile defense system that is supposed to be partially operational within days.

In his final season at Clemson , Watson completed 67 percent of his passes for 4,593 yards, 41 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. One could say it's a big reason why they haven't been able to quite reach the top despite fielding some really good teams.

North Korea, defying intense pressure from the United States and China, test-fired a ballistic missile on Saturday from a region north of its capital.

Seoul's presidential Blue House says White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster has confirmed that the USA won't be seeking South Korean money for the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD, now being installed in the country's south. McMaster said Sunday that the matter is subject to negotiation. "And, frankly, this should've been done and taken care of by the Obama administration".

The latest launch, which South Korea said was a failure, came just hours after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned the UN Security Council of "catastrophic consequences" if the global community - most notably China - failed to pressure the North into abandoning its weapons program.

"People are saying, 'Is he sane?' I have no idea", the President said, before noting Kim Jong Un's rise to power at a young age. I just don't want people to know what my thinking is, ' Trump said.

The interview is set to air later Sunday in the U.S.

The North, defying mounting United States pressure, launched its latest missile test on Saturday, which South Korea said failed.

Trump has sent a nuclear-powered submarine and an aircraft carrier to Korean waters.

Francis says he would urge them to use diplomacy and negotiation "because it's the future of humanity". "I don't think humanity today could bear it", he told reporters.
