US Air Force scrambles aircraft in response to latest NK missile test

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un

"The bottom line is that, when the missiles - were they to be a threat, whether it be to USA territory, Guam, obviously Japan - Japan's territory, that would elicit a different response from us", he said.

Washington has repeatedly urged Beijing to do more direct actions to rein in Pyongyang, while China - North Korea's main ally - says the U.S. should refrainshould refrain from issuing more threats.

The latest gasoline price represents a 70.7 percent and 153.5 percent surge compared with statistics posted on June 8 and December 1, respectively, less than one week after the Security Council adopted its last two resolutions on North Korea.

Speaking to reporters Monday, Defense Secretary James Mattis said North Korea is "intentionally doing provocations that seem to press against the envelope for just how far can they push without going over some kind of a line in their minds that would make them vulnerable".

Pyongyang conducted two intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests in July and earlier this month said it successfully tested a miniaturized hydrogen bomb that can be placed on an ICBM.

The United States, on the other hand, displayed far less patience after UN envoy Nikki Haley highlighted the Security Council's failure to control North Korea and stated that including the Pentagon is a likely next step.

The idea of shooting down a missile even if it is not a direct threat is not new.

However, the tone towards the Communist side is becoming more sharp, with US Representative at the UN, Niki Hailey, saying on Sunday that diplomatic options before the United Nations are exhausted, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe noted that North Korea is a threat to the United States and Europe.

Russian Federation has supported China's "suspension-for-suspension" proposal, where the United States and South Korea would agree to halt joint military drills while North Korea halted missile and nuclear tests. "But I will not go into details".

The issue of North Korea's weapons programme is expected to dominate US President Donald Trump's address at the UN General Assembly and his meetings with the leaders of South Korea and Japan. Mattis acknowledged discussing that with his South Korean counterpart but declined to say whether that option was under consideration.
