McMaster: US no closer to war with N. Korea in past week

Trump and Macron spoke over phone and discussed the need to confront the increasingly unsafe situation regarding North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour, the White House said. The regime's recent military tests reveal that the entire continental USA with the exception of Florida may be in range of North Korean missiles.

"The United States military is locked and loaded every day", McMaster said, adding that the USA has "tremendous military capabilities" and a "very high degree of readiness".

"These statements are irresponsible and risky, and also senselessly provide a boon to domestic North Korean propaganda which has long sought to portray the United States as a threat to their people", read the letter which was spearheaded by Rep. John Conyers of Missouri.

During a telephone conversation trump and XI Jinping called the adoption of United Nations security Council resolutions against North Korea "an important step towards achieving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula". North Korea dominated the conversation between the two leaders, according to a readout of the call.

Recent missile tests have put global attention on North Korea, a country vying to be the world's next nuclear power.

The Labour leader argued Britain's best course of action would be to push for the stalled six-party talks to be resumed with the objective of establishing a denuclearised Korean Peninsula.

"Trump looks forward to seeing Xi in China later this year, a meeting that will be a very historic event".

U.S. President Donald Trump and the Kim regime now seem to be locked into a war of words.

President Trump launched his fiercest warning to the rogue state last week, warning it faces "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it continues to threaten the USA with missiles.

Britain, America's top European ally, could formally refuse Donald Trump's call for help in waging war against North Korea, so long as Kim Jong-un does not strike Hawaii or the United States mainland.
