Trump rejects NKorea talks but key nations split on strategy

Trump rejects NKorea talks but key nations split on strategy

The ministry also said on Monday that it would "push for the option of deploying strategic assets such as the USA carrier strike group and strategic bombers after consultation with the United States".

The proposal has been rejected by the US and South Korea. "It would be great if something else could be worked out".

The draft resolution includes a full ban on exports of oil to North Korea, a full ban on textile imports from North Korea, a ban on North Korean laborers generating earnings overseas, and the asset freeze, which will also target members of the ruling worker's party, the diplomat said, calling it a "hard-hitting, ambitious resolution".

China hopes North Korea will "see the situation clearly and come to the right judgment and choice", Mr Wang said.

The decision was made by the Moon Jae-in Government in the face of growing tension sparked by North Korea, which conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sunday.

The official, who was briefing reporters on condition of anonymity under ground rules set by the administration, said the United States remains focused on building worldwide pressure on North Korea rather than seeking talks. "I believe that President Xi agrees with me 100%", Trump said from the South Lawn as he prepared to board Marine One.

But the United States is expected to face opposition from China and Russian Federation, which both supply oil to North Korea and wield vetoes at the Security Council, reports the BBC.

In a conversation Tuesday with Britain's Prime Minister, the White House says Trump stressed that "now is not the time to talk to North Korea" and that "all options remain open" to defend the US and its allies.

China is both North Korea's and the US' biggest trade partner, and has supported recent sanctions against it.

China's state news agency said Xi expressed China's adamant position about "resolving the nuclear issue through talks". The official also said the North could choose the founding anniversary of the ruling Workers' Party, which falls on October 10, to conduct a provocation.

"We've had presidents for 25 years now, they've been talking, talking, talking, and the day after an agreement is reached, new work begins in North Korea" on its rogue nuclear weapons program, Trump said. "The other half is dialogue and negotiation", Wang added.

The American leader declared "now is not the time to talk to North Korea", according to a White House readout, released shortly before Trump's call with Xi.

Ms Haley said on Monday that the United States was seeking a vote on the new sanctions on September 11. That partly explains the recent emphasis by Trump, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and others on the overwhelming strength of USA military capabilities.

More than 30 people were wounded when around 8,000 South Korean police officers broke up a blockade of about 300 villagers and civic groups opposed to the Thaad system deployment, fire officials said.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert insisted the strategy of applying diplomatic pressure on North Korea, while slow going, is effective. "We'll see what happens", Trump said when asked if he was still considering military action.

The threat of force and the offer of negotiations can coexist, US officials said.

President Donald Trump reiterated Thursday that military action is "certainly" an option against North Korea, as his administration tentatively concurred with the pariah nation's claim to have tested a hydrogen bomb. "That's plainly clear to us".
