Japan seeks to revive TPP without United States

North Korean state media warned the USA they have "super-mighty preemptive strike" planned should the U.S. try to deter its nuclear weapons program with military force after Donald Trump said Americans "always have to be concerned" about the prospect of a thermonuclear war with the communist nation.

"We are reviewing all the status of North Korea both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism, as well as all the other ways we can bring pressure to bear on the regime in Pyongyang to re-engage, but re-engage with us on a different footing than the past talks have been held", Tillerson said.

"The United States of America will always seek peace but under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready", Pence told 2,500 sailors dressed in blue fatigues and Navy baseball caps on a sunny, windy morning aboard the carrier at the U.S. Yokosuka naval base in Tokyo Bay.

It would also demand an immediate end to the North's nuclear and missile tests, threaten to take "further significant measures"-U.N. code for new sanctions-and state that North Korea's illegal activities "are greatly increasing tension in the region and beyond".

Earlier this year, China called on the USA and North Korea to give up something to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The possibility of a preemptive strike against North Korea for now seems to be an unlikely scenario as National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster on ABC news said it is time to undertake all actions "short of a military option".

In a meeting with top officials on Thursday, South Korea's acting president Hwang Kyo-ahn repeatedly asked its military and security ministries to maintain a high level of vigilance.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence walks at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone which has separated the two Koreas since the Korean War, in South Korea, April 17, 2017.

On Monday, Hwang and Pence reaffirmed their plans to go ahead with the THAAD, but the decision will be up to the next South Korean president.

The diplomats, who agreed to discuss the statement only on condition of anonymity because consultations have been private, said China had signed off on it.

The Chinese air force land-attack cruise missile-carrying bombers were being prepared to respond to potential hostilities involving North Korea, a United States defence official told CNN.

Russian Federation wanted to include language contained in a previous resolution stressing the need to achieve a solution through dialogue, council diplomats said.

But he warned: "They are doing a lot of bluster and a lot of threats, and they might misplay that hand and blunder into a war".

"Unchecked Iran has the potential to travel the same path as North Korea and take the world along with it", he said. It was now heading for the Western Pacific as ordered, it said. Trump says his military options are on the table but can he really put them into action?
