N. Korea's nuke advances spooking most Americans

Officials feared the rogue nation would test another missile or nuclear bomb on Monday or Tuesday as North Korean citizens celebrated the 11th anniversary of the country's first nuclear test and the foundation of the ruling Worker's Party of Korea.

President Donald Trump was briefed October 10 by his national security team on "a range of options" to respond to North Korean aggression and threats.

"The U.S. continues to kick up the racket of frantic nuclear war drills even though the situation on the Korean peninsula is on the verge of the outbreak of a worldwide thermonuclear war", the commentary read. Because that's really a world problem; that's beyond just the United States.

Also drawing on South Korea-China relations, the former minister said the countries have not facilitated strategic cooperation on the North Korean issue despite success in social, cultural and political cooperation.

North Korean state media reports on the topic of the United States normally include references to the complete destruction of it and its allies.

Kim has stood by his goal to obtain full nuclear capability despite mounting economic sanctions by the U.N. Security Council to cripples its program. "We cannot allow this to happen", Trump said. In this case, revealing the location of the submarine equipped with twelve vertical launch tubes for Tomahawk cruise missiles, was likely to send a message to the North.

North Korea's nuclear weapons development is spooking most Americans, and two-thirds of them say President Donald Trump's war of words with the isolated nation's leader is making the situation worse.

Speaking during a parliamentary audit Thursday, Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said, "We will beef up our leading role to generate an environment in which denuclearization talks can resume".

Trump defended his tough approach on Wednesday as he conceded differences on North Korea with his own top diplomat, Rex Tillerson, who advocates keeping open the possibility of negotiations with Kim's authoritarian government.

North Korea is also facing strong sanctions from the US and firm condemnation from the global community in the wake of repeated missile launches and nuclear tests.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told Russia's state-run TASS news agency the US and North Korea have a "final score" to settle that can't be done with words, Reuters reported. No action by the North was observed during the 12-hour mission.
