Trump advisers warn North Korea to give up weapons programs

Trump advisers warn North Korea to give up weapons programs”

"President Trump and President Moon committed to continuing to take steps to strengthen deterrence and defense capabilities, and to maximize economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea", the White House said in a statement.

The General Assembly "is an incredibly sophisticated dance that doesn't really play to Tillerson's strengths or to the president's strengths", said Jon Alterman of the Center for Strategic & International Studies.

Washington's ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, kept up the rhetorical pressure ahead of the upcoming meetings in NY, asserting that if the North should pose a serious threat to the U.S. or its allies, "North Korea will be destroyed".

"What we have to do is call on all nations, call on everyone to do everything we can to address this global problem short of war", he advised.

The launch is the second to flyover Japan in less than a month, and the first since North Korea's sixth nuclear test and new United Nations sanctions on the country.

In New York, Trump will hold a series of individual and small-group meetings with leaders from the Mideast, Latin America, Africa and Europe.

"This regime is so close now to threatening the United States and others with a nuclear weapon that we really have to move with a great deal of urgency on sanctions, on diplomacy, and on preparing, if necessary, a military option", he added.

Trump's first presidential trip to the United Nations will be as the head of an unusually high-level delegation, including Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other senior officials.

"For those who have said and have been commenting about the lack of a military option, there is a military option", he insisted.

Still, Tillerson underscored the desire of the USA to avoid that possibility and to have China and Russian Federation act forcefully to that end. South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who ran on a platform of improved relations and expanded dialogue with Pyongyang, said after Thursday's missile launch that "dialogue is impossible in a situation like this".

And Trump tweets that he's asked Moon about "Rocket Man" - an apparent reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon).

"I'm waiting for the regime in North Korea to give us some indication that they're prepared to have constructive, productive talks", he said on CBS's "Face the Nation". His dismissive attitude toward cooperation agreements like the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accords have been worrying America's allies for months.

Though they were not their top choices for the region, Haley and McMaster said, they were available to the President. "All they need to do to let us know they're ready to talk is to just stop these tests, stop these provocative actions, and let's lower the threat-level and the rhetoric".

In her interview on CNN, Haley said Trump would not want to harm an investigation but was "emotional and passionate" about what happened in the UK.

Haley said sanctions had already provided a "punch in the gut" to Pyongyang but that strict enforcement was crucial.
