Trump aide says Tillerson's role is diplomatic, not military

Global markets jolted by Trump's fiery warning to North Korea East Asia Is Seriously Freaked Out About Trump And North Korea

The announcement Thursday warned that the North is preparing a plan to fire four of its Hwasong-12 missiles over Japan and into waters around the tiny island, which hosts 7,000 USA military personnel on two main bases and has a population of 160,000.

The UN Security Council on August 5 voted unanimously to impose new sanctions on North Korea.

Turnbull added: "If North Korea decides to carry out some of its violent threats, then obviously bad consequences will follow".

Trump has said he would not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.

"While our State Department is making every effort to resolve this global threat through diplomatic means, it must be noted that the combined allied militaries now possess the most precise, rehearsed and robust defensive and offensive capabilities on Earth", Mattis said.

"That would be the clearest indication that we were headed toward war", Pollack says. "How often do you see France, China, Russia and the US ... voting unanimously on any issue?"

"For me he is one of the most important businessmen in this country, I am sure he has many reasons to say that". Till then, they will play all their designated home matches at Wembley Stadium this season.

Malcolm Turnbull, the prime minister of U.S. ally Australia, said he had discussed North Korea and recent United Nations sanctions imposed on Pyongyang with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence in a telephone call on Thursday.

Even as President Donald Trump says the USA military is "locked and loaded" to potentially unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea, the two feuding countries have been holding secretive, back-channel talks, The Associated Press reported Friday.

The Kim Jong-Un regime has said it now has the capability of striking the US mainland after two successful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests last month. "The whole of the Security Council has come together behind that, and I think that we should see the President's public comments as one of the strands, one of the many strands of USA activity".

It's the latest warning since he said earlier this week that North Korea faces "retaliation with fire and fury unlike any the world has seen before".

"What they've been doing and what they've been getting away with is a tragedy and it can't be allowed", Trump said. Japan said Thursday it could shoot down missiles for its USA ally if North Korea fires them at Guam.

"He would lash out militarily, at a minimum against South Korea", Admiral Stavridis said to NBC.
