China supports UN action on North Korea, also pushes for dialogue

Donald Trump To Speak With Xi Jinping On North Korea White House

North Korea appeared to carry out its sixth and most powerful test explosion of a nuclear bomb on Sunday.

Moon earlier met with Putin and urged Moscow to support stronger sanctions, but Putin called for talks with North Korea, saying sanctions are not a solution.

As U.S. intelligence continues to assess the underground nuclear test the official cautioned there is a chance that waht North Korea tested may have been a fission bomb bolstered to convert it into a thermonuclear bomb, though not necessarily a Hydrogen bomb.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday echoed South Korea's demand for more pressure on Pyongyang after its nuclear tests as the leaders of the two countries looked to grind down resistance from Russia's Vladimir Putin. With only two successful tests on record, North Korea's latest ICBM is in need of further trials.

Dennis Rodman offers to 'straighten things out' with North Korea
As tensions between the United States and North Korea ratchet higher and higher, who could become the voice of reason? Rodman is believed to have visited North Korea at least five times .

"Invariable is the aggressive ambition of the USA to dominate Asia and the rest of the world by swallowing up the whole Korean Peninsula", said a statement on Friday on the North's official Korean Central News Agency.

The reporter asked President Trump if war is inevitable and whether he would "tolerate a nuclearized North Korea that is contained and deterred but still nuclear". Any threat to the USA or its allies will be met with a massive military response, the official said.

Meanwhile, speaking at a news conference at a military base in Tapa, Estonia, the organization's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called on North Korea to "abandon all nuclear and ballistic missile programs".

Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said Beijing supports further United Nations action against North Korea but also wants to see renewed efforts to begin dialogue involving all sides. "Would he over time recognise that he may have no choice?" Their yields of 10,000 kilotons and more were several hundred times larger than the bombs that leveled Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Mattis, South Korean Counterpart Confer on North Korean Nuke Test
South Korea's Defense Ministry has made a decision to temporarily install four additional launchers of the U.S. The 29-nation USA -led alliance expressed full solidarity with Japan and South Korea, North Korea's neighbors.

"Does he have the patience to manage a hard process of deterrence and containment against the [North] rather than doing something impulsive?" "Some of his deals have taken years to come to fruition".

Yesterday, the U.S. submitted a resolution to the UN Security Council that would slap an oil embargo on North Korea and freeze the assets of leader Kim Jong-Un, setting up a potential clash with China.

As hard as it is to imagine nuclear war, it's even harder to imagine what - short of military action - the USA can do to dissuade North Korean from achieving its longtime goal of building a complete nuclear arsenal capable of hitting American cities, particularly on the West Coast.

South Korea's military is watching North Korea closely for signs of provocations, officials said Saturday, amid concern the regime could undertake a missile launch or even another nuclear test on its founding anniversary.

SA comes out of recession
Second-quarter data shows year-on-year GDP growth was 1.1%, and for the six months growth has been 1.1%. He said that coming out of recession was not about quality but the quantum of growth.

The Mexican government on Thursday (7 September) expelled North Korean ambassador to the country, Kim Hyong Gil, declaring him persona non grata. Pressuring China and North Korea could force negotiations for a peaceful solution.
