Can North Korea Target a US City? Experts Say Not Yet

Can North Korea Target a US City? Experts Say Not Yet”

The Department of National Defense expressed its concern on North Korea's hydrogen bomb test, reportedly the most powerful nuclear test to date.

Mr Mattis said Donald Trump met with a small group of military and defence officials at the White House after USA intelligence officials confirmed the test of a bomb reportedly ready to fit onto an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Commanders are now briefing the US President on military options to tackle North Korea after the US President chillingly warned "we'll see' when quizzed on whether he would strike Pyongyang".

The Defense secretary was accompanied by Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford, the Pentagon's highest ranking uniformed official.

"North Korea today is also a nuclear power".

On Twitter he said that the U.S. is considering "stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea".

President Donald Trump met with Defense Secretary James Mattis and other military leaders on Sunday after North Korea conducted a sixth nuclear weapon test.

North Korea is risky for many reasons.

The defence secretary said they had briefed Mr Trump on a whole raft of possibilities, both diplomatic and military.

"Although, we do not anticipate that there will be, of course, we'll be part of the direct trajectory of any launch, we will prepare for the debris", Purisima said.

The military will also prepare itself for any possibility of repatriation amid the looming threat from North Korea's hydrogen bomb, but Arevalo stressed that "this was a contingent event".

"As we have been saying in the past, while in the Philippines and the Armed Forces of the Philippines is joining the other armed forces from other nations of the world...in wishing that North Korea will desist from what they are professing to do", he added. The bombers took off from a USA air base in Guam.

The UN Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on Monday.

"Kim Jong-un should take heed of the UN Security Council's unified voice".

All members unanimously agreed on the threat North Korea poses.
