North Korea says Syria airstrikes prove its nukes justified

North Korea says Syria airstrikes prove its nukes justified

Still, Trump said that if China does not do anything about North Korea, the United States will, although he has not spelled out what that means.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, without directly naming North Korea, told ABC News, "If you violate worldwide agreements, if you fail to live up to commitments, if you become a threat to others, at some point a response is likely to be undertaken".

On Wednesday, North Korea reportedly launched a ballistic missile from Sinpho, South Hamgyong province, in the direction of the Sea of Japan.

"The stated goal of the last test was to validate the nuclear weapon design that would arm all of North Korea's missiles", Lewis said of North Korea's September 2016 nuclear test - its fifth and largest to date.

The Pentagon announced on Saturday that a Navy carrier strike group was moving toward the western Pacific Ocean to provide a physical presence near the Korean Peninsula.

Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, called that move "prudent" Sunday.

"We have 20 years of diplomacy and sanctions under our belt that has failed to stop the North Korean program", one senior intelligence official involved in the review told NBC News. "So the president has asked us to be prepared to give him a full range of options to remove that threat to the American people and our allies and partners in that region".

North Korea vowed to bolster its defenses to protect itself against airstrikes similar to the ones President Donald Trump ordered on Friday against a Syrian airbase.

It also occurred just before Trump's meeting with China's President Xi Jingping, and at a time when the U.S.is asking Beijing to take action against North Korea's nuclear program.

"The US missile strike against Syria is a clear and unforgivable aggression against a sovereign state and we strongly condemn it", EFE news cited a North Korean Foreign Ministry statement as saying.

The phone conversation between Trump and Abe took place as a ballistic missile test by North Korea drew condemnation from countries in the region and a US missile strike in Syria ratcheted up tensions with Russian Federation.

In a week that saw events unfolding daily, Trump's announcement Thursday about the US missile strike against Syria happened against the backdrop of the president's Florida resort where he was hosting Chinese Leader Xi Jinping and his wife.

Tillerson said that Xi, at his summit with Trump, signaled a willingness to do more to rein in North Korea.

"I don't think that [deploying nuclear weapons] is a good idea".

On the issue of North Korea, Abe and Trump also "completely agreed" on the importance of solidarity among Japan, the United States and South Korea, according to the prime minister. It claims its nuclear weapons are a necessary deterrent to the USA military threat.
