USA seeks tough sanctions against North Korea

While in North Korea, which was marking the nation's founding anniversary Saturday, local media issued fresh calls for a nuclear arms buildup, in defiance of the mounting worldwide sanctions. Experts say the hydrogen bomb was about three times more powerful than America's atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

French President Emmanuel Macron called on the UN Sunday to "quickly react" to the escalation and urged the European Union to come up with a "clear and united" response.

North Korea's continued provocation has forced France to engage in a discussion with the United States and Japan over applying more force on Pyongyang days after it fired its sixth and largest missile.

He stressed that the North's atomic arsenal was a deterrent against U.S. nuclear threats which Paris does not face. North Korean People's Army soldiers celebrate the country's largest nuclear test in Pyongyang on September 6, 2017.

Tension on the Korean peninsula has escalated as North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, has stepped up the development of weapons, testing a string of missiles this year, including one flying over Japan.

It was not immediately clear how North Korean ally China and Russian Federation would vote, but a senior USA official on Friday night expressed scepticism that either nation would accept anything more stringent than a ban on imports of North Korean textiles.

The comments came just hours before the U.S. made a formal request for a UN Security Council vote on tough new sanctions against the repressive regime.

Details of the telephone chat between the three leaders revealed that they all stressed the need for a "united and firm" reaction from the global community towards Pyongyang.

South Korea braced for a possible further missile test by North Korea when it marks its founding anniversary on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Russia and China have warned that peace on the Korean Peninsula is in jeopardy, calling for a dialogue between North Korea, on the one side, and the United States allies, on the other side, to put an end to the tensions in the region.
