USA to 'chart own course' on N. Korea if China can't help

"The U.S. missile attack against Syria is a clear and unforgivable act of aggression against a sovereign state and we strongly condemn this", a foreign ministry official said on the KCNA news agency.

A White House official, who briefed reporters on Tuesday about the upcoming two-day meeting, said North Korea is "a matter of urgent interest" for Trump, and Washington feels that "the clock is very, very quickly running out".

Such closer cooperation could include tighter enforcement of global trade sanctions - nearly all of North Korea's trade passes through China - along with a crackdown on the North's ability to use the worldwide financial system and heavy punishments or exclusion from the financial world for those who deal with the North.

Trump ordered the strike in Syria in response to a deadly chemical weapons attack on Syrians.

North Korea is not afraid of President Donald Trump's strikes on Syria, a state-run media outlet said Sunday.

But the launch is thought to be a warning shot and did not pose a threat to American troops, the United States military confirmed. Two weeks ago, the South Korean and US militaries said they had detected a failed North Korean ballistic missile launch.

The strike group, called Carl Vinson, includes an aircraft carrier and will make its way from Singapore toward the Korean peninsula, according to the official.

Communist leaders in the North are believed to view Assad as a key ally in their decades long struggle with the west. Unlike Syria, North Korea has a means of striking back.

Along with its rapidly advancing nuclear and long-range missile capabilities, the North has its artillery and short-range missiles trained on Seoul, the capital of US ally South Korea and a city of more than 10 million people.

Abe said he and Trump also "frankly exchanged opinions" over the issue of Syria as well as North Korea, following Thursday's US military strike on a Syrian military airfield from which a chemical attack was allegedly launched, killing dozens of civilians including children.

North Korea has pledged to bolster its defenses to protect against such airstrikes.
