Trump Adviser Says Military Option Not Preferred for North Korea

Japan split over how to deal with North Korean missile launches

Chinese Ambassador to Washington Cui Tiankai called on the U.S. to refrain from threatening North Korea after Pyongyang launched another missile over Japan.

"This is a sign, I believe, of their frustration at the increased sanctions on North Korea, recently imposed by the Security Council".

"What we are seeing is they continue to be provocative, they continue to be reckless". The missile flew a distance of almost 3,700 kilometers and attained an altitude of 770 kilometers before it fell in the Pacific Ocean.

North Koreans watch a news report showing North Korea's Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile launch on electronic screen at Pyongyang station in Pyongyang, North Korea.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined this ballistic missile also did not pose a threat to North America.

One former top Trump adviser has said the U.S.is bluffing when it threatens military force against North Korea.

Mattis spoke to reporters during a visit to the U.S. Strategic Command, which oversees U.S. nuclear forces.

President Donald Trump's national security adviser says the US has a military option for North Korea, but that is not its preferred route.

China on Friday said it opposes ballistic missile launches by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) against UN Security Council resolutions. But the North has ignored countless global reproaches previously. "We absolutely can not accept these provocations", Abe said.

North Korea has been the most perplexing foreign policy problem facing the Trump administration in its first year in office, with their now repeated missile tests and one nuclear test putting pressure on the President to have a plan should tensions escalate. Japan also convened a National Security Council meeting.

In the last round of sanctions, however, Washington was unable to get Beijing and Moscow to agree to a total oil embargo and authorization to interdict ships suspected of smuggling banned items.

Diplomacy on the North Korean nuclear standoff has been stalled for years.

"We call on all nations to take new measures against the Kim regime", the top USA diplomat said.

Guterres will be discussing the situation on the Korean Peninsula, with all concerned parties in the margins of the upcoming high level week of the UN General Assembly. "China and Russian Federation must indicate their intolerance for these reckless missile launches by taking direct actions of their own", Tillerson said.

The unidentified missile reached an altitude of about 770 km (480 miles) and flew 3,700 km (2,300 miles), according to South Korea's military - far enough to reach the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

The North's launch comes a day after the North threatened to sink Japan and reduce the United States to "ashes and darkness" for supporting a U.N. Security Council resolution imposing new sanctions against it for its September 3 nuclear test, its most powerful by far. A trio of missile launches and a hydrogen bomb test that is the communist nation's most powerful to date.

At the beginning of this year, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced plans to develop a long-range ICBM nuclear missile that can target the USA mainland.

North Korean state news agency KCNA has, reportedly, threatened to sink all tfour islands of Japan.

It was the second time in two months in which North Korea fired a projectile over Japan.

"For those who have said, and been commenting about a lack of a military option, there is a military option", McMaster said.
