Japan deploys missile defence to northern island, minister says

Grace Jo and her sister Jinhye Jo gather with volunteers to raise awareness about North Korean refugees in Washington in 2015

It prompted renewed sanctions from the UN Security Council, which is scheduled to meet on Thursday to discuss the matter during the annual General Assembly gathering of world leaders at the United Nations.

In a New York Times article, the Japanese Prime Minister notes that the global community must remain united and apply the sanctions against North Korea after its multiple missile tests.

The flights were the first since Pyongyang conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3 and staged an intermediate-range missile test over Japan last Friday.

Military options available to the United States range from non-lethal actions such as a naval blockade to enforce sanctions to waging cyber attacks and positioning new U.S. weaponry in South Korea, where the United States has 28,500 troops.

North Korea is "intentionally doing provocations that seem to press against the envelope for just how far they can push without going over some kind of a line in their minds that would make them vulnerable", Mattis said.

Wang said in a meeting with Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on Monday that China would strictly implement U.N. Security council sanctions and stressed that "parties directly involved" must also take action and responsibility.

The two carried the Cavaliers to the National Basketball Association every year since James returned to the team in 2014. If if had been someone else who was traded, Irving said their relationship with James wouldn't have been a storyline.

Alarmed by North Korea's advancing weapons programs, many conservatives in South Korea have called for the reintroduction of USA tactical nuclear weapons in the South.

On Monday, the official China Daily said sanctions should be given time to bite but that the door must be left open to talks. "Some people have fallen for that and immediately echoed the suggestion, pointing to the failure of past sanctions to achieve their goal", it said in an editorial.

China's Communist Party newspaper, the People's Daily, has criticized the United States for demanding that Beijing put more pressure on North Korea to rein in its weapons programs.

Members of the administration have repeatedly emphasized that a range of military options are on the table and Mattis said that the United States possess military options that would not put Seoul at risk of a North Korean counterattack with the potential to kill tens of thousands of civilians.

A tactical nuclear weapon, which is created to be used against battlefield targets, generally travels across short ranges and carries a low-yield warhead. The United States also conducted Joint Air Force exercises with South Korea.
