US, S Korea to maximise economic, diplomatic pressure on N Korea

"We have pretty much exhausted all the things that we can do at the Security Council at this point", Haley told CNN's "State of the Union", adding that she was perfectly happy to hand the North Korea problem over to Defense Secretary James Mattis.=.

But Haley warned of a tougher USA response to future North Korean provocations, and she said she would be happy to turn the matter over to Defense Secretary James Mattis "because he has plenty of military options".

The meeting will be held during the annual General Assembly gathering of world leaders at the United Nations where Mr Trump will meet the leaders of Japan and South Korea on the sidelines to address the crisis.

"I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night", Trump tweeted early Sunday morning.

Kim has threatened Guam, a US territory in the Pacific, and has fired two missiles over Japan, a USA ally in Asia, including a missile launched on Friday.

US National Security Adviser HR McMaster said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is "going to have to give up his nuclear weapons because the president has said he's not going to tolerate this regime threatening the United States and our citizens with a nuclear weapon".

Moon and Trump agreed to place additional pressure on North Korea, including implementing the new batch of sanctions unanimously adopted by the UN Security Council this past week, a response to Pyongyang's sixth and most power nuclear test on September 3.

Just days ago, the North sailed a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido for the second time in three weeks.

The global community is scrambling to contain an increasingly belligerent North Korea, which in recent weeks has prompted global alarm by conducting its sixth and largest nuclear test and firing long-range missiles over Japan that it says could reach the United States mainland.

Feinstein said that a freeze of both its nuclear program and missile arsenal, rather than ending them, would be more palatable to North Korea and to China, who fears the U.S. goal is toppling Kim.

Asked if that meant Trump would launch a military strike against North Korea, McMaster said "he's been very clear about that, that all options are on the table".

Trump plans to meet with South Korean President Jae-in Moon on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

She said: "At this stage we can not know Kim's true intentions - what we do know is that despite the condemnation and the global sanctions, he shows absolutely no sign of voluntarily abandoning his nuclear or missile programmes".

The United States still wants a peaceful solution and has been waiting for the North Koreans to indicate they are ready to talk, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on CBS' "Face the Nation". "None of us want war". North Korea also recently tested its most powerful bomb. Russian Federation only recently resumed production of the fuel, after Western supplies were cut off over Russia's annexation of Crimea.
