Official says United States not seeking regime change in NKorea”

Meanwhile, China on Tuesday warned that there would be no victor in a potential war on the Korean Peninsula.

The US bombers' dispatch came after the leaders of both countries, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, engaged in an intense verbal conflict, which, with Pyongyang's constant weapons tests, has greatly escalated the tension in the region.

"We need to do better on this and will", Twitter said.

"If North Korea does not stop their provocative actions, you know, we will make sure that we provide options to the President to deal with North Korea", Colonel Manning said.

Australian shares were down 0.2%, while South Korean shares slid 0.3%.

Over the weekend, the US sent warplanes into global airspace east of North Korea, in a show of force that included B-1B Lancer bombers and F-15C Eagle fighter escorts.

Trump also criticized previous administrations, saying that the "situation" with North Korea "should have been handled 25 years ago, 20 years ago, 15 years ago, 10 years ago and five years ago". "In case innocent lives of the USA are harmed because of this suicide attack, Trump will be held totally responsible". He also called President Trump a "mentally deranged person full of megalomania", who holds the American "nuclear button" in his remarks.

In the tweet, Trump referred to Ri's speech at the U.N. General Assembly, in which he said that North Korea would make its "rockets visit the entire USA mainland".

Recently, North Korea conducted its sixth most powerful nuclear test on September 3, attracting United Nations sanctions and criticism from the global community.

"There will be no winners should war break out on the Korean Peninsula and it will bring suffering to regional countries", Lu said.

In response, Kim issued a long statement in which he took the rare step of using the first person - and in which he vowed, "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".

North Korea has warned that Trump's bellicose remarks against the Asian country and its leader will make the U.S. mainland an "inevitable" target for rocket strikes.

In response North Korea said they had the right to "shoot down" U.S. planes - even if they were not in the country's airspace.

Ri, who made the comments before leaving NY where he had attended last week's UN General Assembly, made the statement then returned from his auto to the press microphones to add: 'In light of the declaration of war by Trump, all options will be on the operations table of the supreme leadership of the DPRK (Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea)'.

He said that North Korean nuclear weapons and missile development threaten the entire world with unthinkable loss of life. "We are prepared to use the full range of military capabilities to defend the USA homeland and our allies".

Beijing reiterated its plea for peace talks after the bellicose rhetoric between the United States and North Korea reached new heights in recent days, following Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test early this month.

The foreign minister then issued his own threats, saying that the North Korean military would shoot down planes flying near their borders, apparently a reference to recent US and South Korean action.
