Trump, Moon to increase pressure on N.Korea: White House

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his country is nearing its goal of reaching an "equilibrium" in military force with the United States, state media reported Saturday. The leaders of South Korea and Japan will join Mr. Trump for lunch, where North Korean nuclear weapon and long-range missile programs will be the main topic.

During the council meeting, countries will address ways to stem missile and nuclear technology to "the world's most risky actors", the note said.

Mattis told reporters on his way to Mexico that as a result of the North Korean missile test, tens of millions of Japanese people were seen going into duck and cover, which was the second time that they've had to do that since World War II.

The U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said this month that Iran is playing by the rules.

Kim was shown beaming as he watched the missile fly from a moving launcher in photos released by the agency, surrounded by several officials. Excessive sanctions against North Korea are not only overkill but also pushes Kim regime against the wall, hence, resulting in the fat boy fighting for his survival.

The meeting, held at a ministerial level, will highlight global unity in confronting the crisis with North Korea, diplomats said.

Experts have long questioned if the USA could indeed attack North Korea, given its ability to cause massive casualties south of the border.

Kim said his country has almost completed the building of its nuclear weapons force.

North Korea staged its sixth and most powerful nuclear bomb test earlier this month and in July tested long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching at least parts of the United States mainland.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference Friday that the government will make every effort to realize an early return of all remaining abductees.

On Thursday, US Secretary of State Tillerson called on China, Pyongyang's only ally, and Russian Federation to apply more pressure on North Korea by "taking direct actions of their own".

Yet Trump said last week that he and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are skeptical that the sanctions will have a significant impact on North Korea's nuclear ambitions. On Tuesday, in addition to his General Assembly speech, Trump will meet with the emir of Qatar, whose kingdom is embroiled in a dispute with other Middle East nations, including Saudi Arabia, over alleged funding of terror groups.

Trump asked Moon "how Rocket Man is doing" - as the USA president put it in a Sunday morning tweet - and took note of the "long gas lines forming in North Korea", presumably as a result of the stricter sanctions recently implemented.

The United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has said the UN Security Council has run out of options for containing North Korea's nuclear programme and the U.S. may have to turn the matter over to the Pentagon.

North Korea has been the most perplexing foreign policy problem facing the Trump administration in its first year in office, with their now repeated missile tests and one nuclear test putting pressure on the President to have a plan should tensions escalate.

As president-elect, he called the United Nations.

Japan and North Korea resumed their negotiations in March 2014. He also said that the North is likely planning similar test launches of its Hwasong-14 missile. Top advisers to the U.S. leader warned North Korea on Sunday to stop threatening America and its allies and give up its nuclear weapons programs.

The grueling schedule will test the skills and endurance of Mr. Tump, who, like most other first-year US presidents, arrives at the United Nations as a novice in worldwide diplomacy.

On Friday, the U.N. Security Council condemned North Korea's "highly provocative" test of an intermediate-range missile.
