Possible US options on table with N. Korea

Pence says trade with South Korea must change

US Vice President Mike Pence and Japan's Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso have agreed to hold further economic talks later this year that could lead to a bilateral trade deal

Pence, dressed in a green military jacket, said aboard the hulking carrier Ronald Reagan that President Trump's administration would continue to "work diligently" with allies like Japan and China to apply economic and diplomatic pressure on Pyongyang. You know, the ball is in their court.

Russian Federation has derailed a proposed UN Security Council statement that would have condemned North Korea's latest missile launch test, using its veto to torpedo the motion.

"This is clearly a distortion of history and an invasion of the Republic of Korea's sovereignty", conservative Liberty Korea Party candidate Hong Joon-pyo said through a spokesman. STEEL Trump launches an investigation to determine whether Chinese and other foreign-made steel threatens US national security, raising the possibility of new tariffs and triggering a rally in USA steel stocks.

On Sunday, North Korea attempted to launch another missile, but failed, according to the data of the U.S. air forces - the missile exploded nearly rights after the launch.

Mattis denounced North Korea's attempted missile launch as he began a Middle East tour, telling reporters travelling with him to Saudi Arabia, "the leader of North Korea again recklessly tried to provoke something by launching a missile", he said. Regime change threatens to establish a new, USA -allied Korea on its northeastern frontier as any leader outside the Kim dynasty would struggle to gain legitimacy.

Another official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss an intelligence matter, said the missile was a Scud variant that the US calls a KN-17. China's approach has failed to gain traction, however: North Korea snubbed requests to meet top diplomats including Wang this month.

"We are evaluating all of those options", he said. If North Korea collapsed and was absorbed by the South, the unified government would probably seek to maintain its USA alliance as insurance against an even more powerful neighbor: China. But it remains unclear what might come next.

The concerns were exacerbated after a North Korean missile exploded during launch on Sunday, U.S. and South Korean officials said. A US official said Pyongyang's projectile "blew up nearly immediately" during an attempted launch off North Korea's east coast.

Trump says United States relations with Russian Federation at 'all-time low'
That's why I supported last week's limited action against the airfield from which Assad's air force launched the chemical attack. But also, the U.S. feels right now that it has made the case that Russian support for Assad must end.

Turkey's election board rejects appeals to annul referendum
Unofficial results, which the opposition said it would challenge, showed a narrow victory for him with 51.4 percent of votes cast in favour.

Behind the heated rhetoric, Trump's strategy in the region looks somewhat similar to predecessor Barack Obama's - albeit with the added unpredictability of a new president who has shown he's willing to use force.

Tensions in Northeast Asia have been ramped up by threats from the North to carry out a sixth nuclear test or an intercontinental ballistic missile test.

Without mincing words, the official newspaper of Pyongyang's ruling Workers' Party, the Rodong Sinmum warned that the United States and its regional allies like Japan and South Korea should not mess with Kim Jong-un's regime.

China made a plea for a return to negotiations.

"China firmly opposes any words or actions that would escalate rivalry and tension", Lu said.

There is little bit of cosying up happening between the USA and Beijing.
