Korea's Kim to blink first

The US and Japan have agreed to advance their multilateral security and defence co-operation with countries like India, South Korea and Australia in view of North Korea's unsafe provocative behaviour, leaders of the countries have said.

If you watch cable news or follow the president's Twitter feed, you might be under the impression that the U.S.is heading to war with North Korea.

"With a unified global message like we've never had before", North Korea will realise the level of isolation that it faces, Mr Tillerson said while standing next to Defence Secretary James Mattis and Japan's top diplomat and defence chief.

The United States has been hoping China can press the North to rein in its weapons programs, something the top us general reiterated in talks in Beijing this week. State media reported that leader Kim Jong Un was watching USA moves before deciding to order the test.

The United States and South Korea remain technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

The US-South Korean exercise, called Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, will involve about 17,500 US servicemen, including 3,000 from outside South Korea, the Pentagon said. North Korea's recent intercontinental ballistic missile and other missile launches are unacceptable provocations, and they must stop immediately. "I would like to warn North Korea to end its risky gamble", he added. North Korea, meanwhile, has long denounced the drills, seeing them as a rehearsal for an invasion.

This time, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has missiles capable of reaching the United States - and nuclear warheads to put on his rockets.

The drills also come following a meeting between two of the top military leaders of the USA and China, which has been tasked by President Donald Trump to step up its actions to hinder Kim and the North's threats.

"Military action on the Korean peninsula can only be decided by the Republic of Korea", Moon remarked at a press conference in Seoul.

Harris has repeatedly said North Korea and its leader, Kim Jong Un, are PACOM's biggest worries.

Trump last week pledged to answer North Korean aggression with "fire and fury". For its part, North Korea has said it will hold off on launching missiles toward Guam to see what the United States does next. However, the US and South Korea maintain they are purely defensive. The North later walked back that threat, saying that it would instead keep an eye on the situation.

Moon said people worked hard to rebuild South Korea and could not lose everything again because of war.

"I don't mean to downplay the threat, but do I look like a stressed out guy?" he said, laughing.

Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have been running high of late as the North continues to develop its nuclear capacities and as U.S. President Donald Trump continues to ratchet up tensions by responding erratically.
