President Donald Trump says the U.S. will impose additional sanctions on North Korea over the communist country's nuclear weapons buildup.

Another reason that made the war unlikely, according to Preston, was the fact that the American public was preoccupied with more important problems like the economy, immigration and healthcare and didn't pay much attention to tensions with North Korea. "Anything that Trump says along the lines of threatening to destroy North Korea has to be taken with a grain of salt".

He noted that Chinese banks received a document Monday stating they should halt financial services and loans to new and existing North Korean customers as a result of strict United Nations sanctions passed earlier this month.

"I think we're making a lot of progress in a lot of ways".

The senators called for Trump to appoint talented figures with extensive careers in the North Korea and Asia sectors to the posts, underlining that they play key roles in fine-tuning USA diplomatic and defense policies on the region, the broadcaster said.

He thanked Chinese President Xi Jinping for the "bold move", which he called "unexpected".

He said: "I am very proud to tell you, as you may have heard just moments ago, China, their central bank has told their other banks, it's a massive banking system, to immediately stop doing business with North Korea".

When asked whether dialogue was still possible he responded: "Why not?"
