North Korea says seeking military 'equilibrium' with US

North Korea says seeking military 'equilibrium' with US

Haley says President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" threat against North Korea wasn't an empty threat.

That test prompted the UN Security Council to pass sanctions banning textile exports and restricting oil exports to the isolated Asian country.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, left, and national security adviser H.R. McMaster participate in a September 15 news briefing at the White House.

North Korea has launched dozens of missiles under Kim Jong Un's leadership to accelerate a weapons programme created to give it the ability to target the United States with a powerful, nuclear-tipped missile. Where North Korea is being irresponsible and reckless, we were being responsible by trying to use every diplomatic possibility that we could possibly do. North Korea claimed it successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. She said, however, that options for dealing with the regime of Kim Jong Un are not limited to diplomacy.

The California Democrat added, "We know that they can hit anywhere within the United States now and they've done this in a relatively short time", she said on CNN.

Trump plans to meet with South Korean President Jae-in Moon on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

Trump's comments came a day after Kim vowed North Korea would complete its controversial nuclear weapons ambitions.

Trump's chief diplomat held out hope the North would return to the bargaining table, though the president's envoy to the United Nations said the Security Council had "pretty much exhausted" all its options.

It has also said that the X-37B Orbital has a wingspan of 14 feet, 11 inches, is almost 30 feet long, and weighs 11,000 pounds. The last mission lasted nearly two years and ended with a May touchdown at the runway formerly used by Nasa's space shuttles .

Kim also said the country, despite "limitless" global sanctions, has almost completed the building of its nuclear weapons force and called for "all-state efforts" to reach the goal and obtain a "capacity for nuclear counterattack the USA can not cope with".

It was the second missile launch over Japan in a month.

"We've been kicking the can down the road, and we're out of road", McMaster told reporters, referring to Pyongyang's repeated missile tests in defiance of worldwide pressure.

The president also suggested that queues for gas were growing in North Korea as a result of fresh United Nations sanctions imposed on the country.

" ... Additional provocations will only further isolate the country (North Korea) diplomatically and economically, and will eventually lead down the path of its own collapse".

"America and our allies will never be intimidated", Trump said.

The source said Kuwait will not renew permits given to North Korean workers to re-enter the country after projects they are now working on are completed "within one or two years".
