His comments punctuate President Donald Trump's warning that North Korea will be met with "fire and fury" if it threatens the US.

Speaking at an event in California, Mattis said his mission and responsibility was to have military options ready "should they be needed" but stressed the U.S. effort is now focused on diplomacy.

Those looking for words of comfort in regards to North Korea and its nuclear weapons program need not read any further.

Mattis praised the diplomatic leadership of Tillerson and US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, as well as a unanimous vote by the UN Security Council to impose fresh sanctions on North Korea.

"We're trying to convey to the North Koreans we are not your enemy, we are not your threat, but you are presenting an unacceptable threat to us, and we have to respond", he said last week.

When Trump was asked Thursday about his statement on North Korea, he said, according to a White House pool report: "Maybe it wasn't tough enough".

Trump has notched up his criticism of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, saying he has "gotten away with [horrific] things for a long time between him and his family" and that he wouldn't let Kim "get away it" now. "I'm quite proud of what we've accomplished". "That shows where the Trump administration goes in terms of the prioritizing of the threat but also how to deal with it in a diplomatically effective manner".

"China should make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US territories and triggers USA retaliations, China will stay neutral". What they do to their own people in North Korea, I can't tell you on television.

There are about 29,000 American troops permanently stationed in South Korea.

It also said that China and Russian Federation should enhance coordination to let other parties know they would not stand aside should their security be threatened by the escalating tensions.
