Foreign investors may adjust portfolios over N. Korea risks: BOK board member

Trump and Moon

Russian Federation and China called for restraint on North Korea on Monday after U.S. President Donald Trump warned over the weekend that "only one thing will work" in dealing with Pyongyang, hinting that military action was on his mind, Reuters reports.

In recent weeks, North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test, all in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, and may be fast advancing toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the USA mainland. "I think perhaps I feel stronger and tougher on that subject than other people, but I listen to everybody", Trump told reporters in a joint media appearance with visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justine Trudeau at his Oval Office yesterday.

White House officials are said to be increasingly concerned by the President's behaviour, both publicly and privately, and are said to be anxious he will start World War III.

Its actions were in defiance of multiple sets of United Nations sanctions, prompting US President Donald Trump to threaten military action against the regime.

Later at night, Trump told Fox News that the world has reached a situation on North Korea where something has to be done.

Tillerson discusses visa crisis with Turkish foreign minister
Bass's move was made in consultation with Trump administration officials in Washington, she said. Turkey's ties with the US have frayed since the failed coup against Erdogan in July 2016.

Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of Defence James Mattis are reported to have talked about what they would say to the President if he does order a nuclear attack.

These flights are said to anger the North, which claims they are preparation for war. You can see what a democracy and a market economy does, and you can contrast that with Vietnam, who we were at war with, with the Vietnam War.

"They are a communist state, but they are our 16th largest trading partners", Yoho said.

And the hermit kingdom responded by stressing their right to nuclear weapons, labelling Trump "deranged" in the process. So nuclear weapons is not the answer.

Mr Trump is expected to send a "significant message" to North Korea either verbally or "kinetically" during the trip, Yonhap said, without elaborating on what that may mean.
