Japan seeks to salvage TPP after US withdrawal from trade deal

Pentagon chief Jim Mattis also said the Vinson was "on her way up" to the peninsula, while Trump said an "armada" had been dispatched, adding fuel to already rising tensions.

On April 9 North Korea attempted to launch a new test missile.

"I wouldn't describe relations between North Korea and the Obama administration as an era of strategic patience, because the United States greatly restricted North Korea's ability to develop the industries that could promote the nuclear or energy sectors".

Russia Wednesday blocked a draft US statement in the U.N. Security Council condemning the latest North Korean missile test.

The two sides have also engaged in a war of words, with American officials repeatedly saying that all options are on the table in an apparent reference to military strikes, and North Korean officials also churning out highly belligerent rhetoric.

"We will not rest and will not relent until we obtain the objective of a denuclearized Korean Peninsula", Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday in Tokyo.

"The leader of North Korea again recklessly tried to provoke something by launching a missile", he said.

"American officials did make some positive and constructive remarks. such as using whatever peaceful means possible to resolve the (Korean) Peninsula nuclear issue".

The Bay's team was without several key players as KD, Shaun Livingston, and Matt Barnes all sat with injuries. According to ESPN Stats & Info, just one of their combined 34 field-goal attempts in Game 2 was uncontested.

On April 17 North Korea's Vice-Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol told the BBC in Pyongyang, that despite worldwide condemnation and growing military tensions with the U.S., North Korea will "be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis".

Its aim is to be able to put a nuclear warhead on an intercontinental ballistic missile that can reach targets around the world, including the US.

At the time of the strike group's deployment, many media outlets reported the ships were moving towards North Korea, suggesting a looming showdown, when in fact they had temporarily headed in the opposite direction.

Guterres singled out the countries "in the front line" of contacts with North Korea-the United States, China, South Korea, Russia and Japan-and said everybody involved should "make sure that everything is done for the threat represented by the development in relation to missiles and in relation to the potential for nuclear capability not to become a threat to the global community".

USA officials say tougher sanctions could include an oil embargo, a global ban on North Korea's airline, intercepting cargo ships and punishing Chinese banks doing business with Pyongyang.

North and South Korea are technically still at war as their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, and not a peace treaty.

"We have said it as clearly as we can possibly say it". There are also doubts about the leverage China has on North Korea.

North Korea will continue to test missiles on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis, Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol said.

Asked by a reporter what message he had for North Korea's young leader Kim Jong-Un on Monday, Trump replied "Gotta behave".
