Donald Trump, South Korean leader discuss North Korea's 'Rocket Man'

"We have pretty much exhausted all the things that we can do at the Security Council at this point", she told CNN's State of the Union, adding that she was perfectly happy to hand the matter to Defence Secretary James Mattis.

Donald Trump has taken a swipe at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, labelling him "Rocket Man" following the secretive state's controversial missile tests.

North Korea will be high on the agenda for world leaders this week at the annual meeting of the U.N. General Assembly, Trump's biggest moment on the world stage since his inauguration in January.

That round of meetings next week will mark Trump's first address to the large worldwide body.

North Korea's leaders have repeatedly said they need nuclear weapons to defend themselves against "hostile" United States forces, 35,000 of which are stationed in South Korea.

McMaster said Trump's scheduled speech Tuesday at the U.S. General Assembly in NY will "communicate his vision for America's role in the world" in three areas: protecting American people, promoting American prosperity and promoting accountability and sovereignty. But Trump will not have the opportunity to meet with Presidents Xi Jinping of China and Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation, both of whom are skipping the gathering. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing. But, he said, "that's where the rockets are coming from".

While there has been a great deal of media attention surrounding the Lancer's technical ability to carry nuclear weapons, the U.S. military's fastest bombers are inspected annually by Russian experts to ensure all B-1Bs are compliant with the Cold-War era Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, which bars them from carry nukes. "Until the talks start, this process we're watching is just going to go on and on and on". "We have to make sure all options are under development to ensure that this regime can not threaten the world with a nuclear weapon", he said.

Feinstein also said USA missile defense "isn't perfect" and that she's "concerned about the safety of the United States". She says war is undesirable but adds that "something has got to be done" if North Korea continues to threaten the US and its allies.

Democratic US Senator Dianne Feinstein said on Sunday that Trump should not rule out talks with North Korea before it agrees to end its nuclear program. North Korea also recently tested its most powerful nuclear bomb yet.

"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 sense of urgency on sanctions, on diplomacy and preparing, if necessary, a military option", McMaster told the "Fox News Sunday" program.

"We have tried a couple of times to signal to them that we're ready, when they're ready", he said. "And we all know that, and none of us want that".

America's ambassador to the United Nations is raising the prospect of USA military action against North Korea if the North continues its missile and nuclear tests.

North Korea said on Saturday it aimed to reach an "equilibrium" of military force with the United States.

Nikki Haley says North Korea will be "destroyed" if it continues with what she describes as "reckless" behavior. "None of us want war", she said on CNN. "But we also have to look at the fact that you are dealing with someone who is being reckless, irresponsible and is continuing to give threats not only to the United States, but to all their allies, so something is going to have to be done". "There's no military solution here, they got us".

UK Leaders Aren't Happy About Trump's Tweets on the London Terror Attack
President Donald Trump on Friday blasted the "loser terrorists" behind the train attack in London that injured at least 18 people. London police have declined to comment on Trump's tweets , and have given no information about potential suspects.

But U.S. intelligence agencies are focused on a less ordinary fuel.

Speaking with ABC on Sunday, McMaster highlighted that Washington will find a fundamentally different approach to deal with the North as past sanctions have clearly failed.

Classified memos from both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations laid out how the North's pursuit of the highly potent fuel would enable it to develop missiles that could strike nearly anywhere in the continental United States. "And they have responded with more missile launches and a nuclear test".

But despite pressure from the USA and its Asian allies, Kim doesn't appeared to be backing down.

China has urged the United States to refrain from making threats to North Korea.

Still, they were less harsh than those initially proposed by the USA - and Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, spoke ominously of the possible failures of diplomacy.

Today, the chemical is made primarily by China, a few European nations and Russian Federation, which calls it the devil's venom.
