Rubio: Kim Jong Un 'Probably Worried' After Syrian Strike

North Korea's nuclear prowess has certainly upped significantly over the past few years. "We are working diplomatically, including with those that we might be able to enlist in this effort to get North Korea under control". The latest two resolutions (Resolutions 2270 and 2321), adopted past year in response to North Korea's fourth and fifth nuclear tests, represent the strongest-ever sanctions by the Security Council. VX nerve agent - an extremely lethal chemical weapon - was found to have been used to assassinate the brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in broad daylight in Malaysia.

During the 45-minute phone conversation proposed by Washington following a two-day meeting between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Florida, Abe told Trump that Tokyo is watching closely how China responds to North Korean issues, the Japanese leader said.

North Korea's accelerated weapons testing schedule is likely to be high on the agenda, with the USA administration previously claiming that military options and secondary financial sanctions on Chinese banks are on the table.

The launch comes on the eve of a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping to the United States to meet President Donald Trump.

The White House has offered conflicting accounts on how it plan on handling Pyongyang going forward.

Trump was meeting again with his Chinese counterpart Friday, with USA missile strikes on Syria adding weight to his threat to act unilaterally against the nuclear weapons program of China's ally, North Korea. But in order for that to happen, North Korea's posture has to change before there's any basis for dialogue or discussions, ' Tillerson added.

North Korea now has the strength to "wipe out" the United States "in a moment" with an H-bomb, the editorial said.

The European Union on Thursday imposed additional sanctions on North Korea over nuclear and ballistic missile tests, which it said threatened global security.

Fox News reporter, Greg Palkot, claimed the South Korean Foreign Minister had also suggested that soon North Korea may have nuclear weapons.

The council said it would closely monitor developments in North Korea and "take further significant measures", without elaborating.

The US Navy's strike on the Syrian military base could also strain ties with Beijing.

The US recently said it would take possible unilateral action against Pyongyang if China, the North's main ally, failed to help pressure Pyongyang into abandoning its nuclear and possibly missile programs.

China, North Korea's largest military and trade partner, has shown increasing annoyance with Pyongyang. South Korea trounced India 10-0 in their opener on Monday, while North Korea previously routed India 8-0 and beat Hong Kong 5-0. Well, if there were any in Kim Il Sung stadium they were keeping very quiet.
