China nuclear envoy in talks on North Korea threat

Abe said he and Trump also "frankly exchanged opinions" over the issue of Syria as well as North Korea, following Thursday's USA military strike on a Syrian military airfield from which a chemical attack was allegedly launched, killing dozens of civilians including children.

US Pacific Command spokesman Dave Benham, in commenting on the repositioning of the carrier strike group to waters near North Korea, said, "The No 1 threat in the region continues to be North Korea, due to its reckless, irresponsible and destabilising program of missile tests and pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability".

In an interview with ABC's "This Week", Tillerson conveyed this message: "If you violate worldwide agreements, if you fail to live up to commitments, if you become a threat to others, at some point a response is likely to be undertaken".

The South's deployment of a controversial USA missile defence system loathed by Beijing will also be high on Wu's agenda, Yonhap news agency said. The North has long claimed that the U.S.is preparing some kind of assault against it and justifies its nuclear weapons as defensive.

"In terms of North Korea", he added, "we've been very clear that our objective is a denuclearized Korea peninsula".

McMaster described the US decision to send the Carl Vinson Strike Group to safeguard USA interests in the Western Pacific as "prudent".

"Presidents before and Mr Trump agreed that that is unacceptable, and that what must happen is the denuclearisation of the peninsula", US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told Fox News on Sunday.

In a show of force in the region, the U.S. Pacific Command ordered the Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group to move closer to the Korean Peninsula.

However, he found himself pushed out of the side when Tony Pulis arrived and only played five times in the following campaign. Ndidi is nearly certainly off the agenda for West Brom, given he's only just joined Leicester City and is doing well.

North Korea has pledged to bolster its defenses to protect against such airstrikes.

The missile strikes against Syria's Assad-led government took place Thursday night as President Donald Trump hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping for dinner at Trump's Florida estate.

(April 10, 2017)( cg ) "The two sides agreed to additional and stronger UN Security Council resolutions if the North carries out a strategic provocation such as a nuclear test or an intercontinental ballistic missile launch despite warnings from the global community".

"While I have no doubt that any administration faced with an extremist threat from North Korea to launch a missile with a nuclear warhead on it toward the United States would act decisively to stop that, I think it's much less likely that any administration including this one would try to use force pre-emptively to destroy North Korea's nuclear or missile programs", Blinken said.
