North Korea celebrates nuclear test

U.S. President Donald Trump with South Korea's President Moon Jae In and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Trump tweeted Sept. 5 that he is allowing both Japan and South Korea to 'buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophistica

Xi was also quoted as saying, "In the end, Korean Peninsula issues can only be resolved through peaceful means, including dialogue and negotiations".

Donald Trump said that military action against a defiant North Korea after its recent powerful nuclear test was "not inevitable".

Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping spoke for 45 minutes Wednesday as the United States president seeks China's help in putting pressure on Pyongyang.

The poverty-stricken but belligerent nation followed up its sixth and largest nuclear test with words that US military planners can't afford to ignore.

Asked whether he was considering a military response to North Korea, Trump said: "Certainly, that's not our first choice, but we will see what happens". "It lasted a long time".

Abe, who will meet later in the day with Putin, said before his departure from Japan that "we must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path". "He doesn't want to see what's happening there, either".

Most surprisingly, the North Korean leader, third in a line of family successors to rule the country, has even rhetorically antagonized the People's Republic of China, which the US has enlisted to assist in de-nuclearizing North Korea.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump warned catastrophic action against Pyongyang, if the latter continues to provoke Washington and its allies in the Korean peninsula. China and Russian Federation were both expected to oppose further sanctions, the report said.

Han Tae Song, Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, confirmed that North Korea, officially known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), had successfully conducted its sixth and largest nuclear bomb test on Sunday. China and South Korea criticized Pyongyang.

Washington has presented a draft United Nations resolution calling for an oil embargo on North Korea, an assets freeze on Kim Jong-Un, a ban on textiles and an end to payments of North Korean guest workers. The measure also would freeze all of the North's and Kim's foreign financial assets, and outlaw North Korean textiles exports.

An unannounced missile heading toward the United States mainland from North Korea could cause a nuclear retaliation, so Pyongyang would most likely try to aim the missile elsewhere. Almost 400 protesters were injured after being cracked down by the anti-riot battalion of the South Korean forces.

A confidential report by a panel of UN experts reported to the UN Security Council earlier this month that two North Korean shipments to a Syrian government agency had been intercepted and that they had "reasons to believe the goods were part of a deal between Syria's agency overseeing chemical weapons program and North Korea's state arms dealer".

In the rural town of Seongju, thousands of police officers in riot gear swarmed some 400 protesters who since Wednesday night had been occupying a road leading to a former golf course where the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence System is installed.
