Trump calls Chinese envoy to North Korea ineffectual

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said he still had confidence in diplomatic efforts on North Korea and that the United States would be "unrelenting" in working through the United Nations. However, North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un called the launch "impeccable" and a "breakthrough".

Photos released by North Korean media show the launch process as supervised by the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, and reveal a new missile, the Hwasong-15, that is unlike anything previously seen from the nation.

"That would be a pivotal step in the world's effort to stop this worldwide pariah", she said, warning that if Beijing does not act, "we can take the oil situation into our own hands".

"If the United States drops out of this deal, it won't be very credible in the eyes of those who are now requested to drop their (own) nuclear programme like North Korea", Lavrov said.

"The Chinese envoy, who just returned from North Korea, seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man", Trump said on Twitter, a day after speaking with Chinese President Chinese President Xi Jinping and reiterating his call for Beijing to use its leverage against North Korea. We do think they could do more with the oil.

He called Haley's speech on North Korea, which she made at an emergency UN Security Council meeting, "a really bloodthirsty tirade".

NASA added it will likely do a similar test on the TCM thrusters for Voyager 2, the twin spacecraft of Voyager 1. Voyager 1 is now more than 13 billion miles away from Earth, so the commands took a while to be relayed.

North Korea lambasts US-South joint military drill
The North says the Hwasong-15 missile can be tipped with a "super-large heavy warhead" capable of striking the whole US mainland. North Korea has repeatedly rejected accusations of human rights abuses and blames sanctions for a dire humanitarian situation.

The country has since fallen into chaos and Mr Saleh later joined the Houthis to drive Mr Hadi out of the capital in 2014. He told Yemenis all across the country that if they support him, "to defend the nation, the republic and the revolution".

While Trump has been bellicose at times in rhetoric toward North Korea, Tillerson has persistently held out hopes for a return to dialogue if North Korea shows it is willing to give up its nuclear weapons program.

U.S. sanctions against North Korea were bolstered last week after the Trump administration declared North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism.

A White House statement said Trump and Moon reiterated their strong commitment to enhancing the deterrence and defense capabilities of the U.S.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha is planning to make her first visit to Japan as Seoul's top diplomat later this month to discuss cooperation on reining in North Korean military threats and ways to resolve the countries' historical feud, diplomatic sources said Friday.

The US has repeatedly said that it will not accept North Korea as a nuclear power and that it will consider military intervention to stop it.

Experts say the height reached by the inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) indicates Washington could be within range, although North Korea is yet to prove it has reached its aim of miniaturising a nuclear warhead.

Mr Xi said China would like to keep up communications with the United States and all other related parties and "jointly push the nuclear issue toward the direction of peaceful settlement via dialogues and negotiations", according to Xinhua.
