US President Donald Trump gestures as he and Chinese President Xi Jinping meet in Palm Beach. The world’s two biggest nations continue to fail to agree on the best action to rein in North Korea’s provocative missile tests

The Blue House said Moon and Trump had strongly condemned the latest missile launch by North Korea, and agreed that the two nations would work with the global community to implement the latest UN Security Council's resolution 2375, Park said.

"After seeing our capabilities, I am more confident than ever that our options are not only effective but overwhelming", Trump said.

He further stressed that the country should be prepared for a nuclear counter-attack, which the "U.S. can not cope with".

The U.S. leader will host a lunch with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korea's Moon Jae-in on Thursday on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, Trump's National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told a White House briefing. The launch followed the North's sixth and most powerful nuclear test earlier this month. North Korea is closer than ever to its goal of building a military arsenal that can viably target both US troops in Asia and the American homeland.

It had already stepped up sanctions against North Korea in response to a nuclear bomb test on September 3, imposing a ban on North Korea's textile exports and capping its imports of crude oil.

Experts have long questioned if the USA could indeed attack North Korea, given its ability to cause massive casualties south of the border.

US options range from everything to accepting North Korea as a nuclear power to using military force in a bid to destroy its arsenal and even oust leader Kim Jong Un.

The U.S. military said it had detected a single intermediate range ballistic missile but it did not pose a threat to North America or Guam.

PM Abbasi, Ishaq Dar reach London to meet Nawaz Sharif
Abbasi recently met United States ambassador to Pakistan David Hale. It was a dressing down that left Pakistan feeling humiliated. Some of those meetings are being planned.

Trump has also threatened "fire and fury" in response to North Korea's threats. United Nations Security Council resolutions, including the most recent unanimous sanctions resolution, represent the floor, not the ceiling, of the actions we should take.

South Korean president Moon Jae-in also said dialogue with the North was impossible at this point.

The United States and South Korea are technically still at war with North Korea because the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce and not a peace treaty. "Hopefully there will be coordination with allies on their policy lines before he adds anything to the speech about North Korea".
