South Korean Pol Urges Trump to Seek Allies on North Korea

The test prompted the USA and the South to stage a joint missile drill aimed at countering the North's threats, after South Korean President Moon Jae-In called for a response beyond "just words".

Vincent K. Brooks, the American general leading USA troops in South Korea claimed on Wednesday that despite the North Koreans' "repeated provocation", the maintaining "patience and self restraint" for now.

Pyongyang last week launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that some experts believe could have the range to reach Alaska, Hawaii and perhaps the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

North Korea announced on Tuesday it successfully test-launched an ICBM, saying the missile was capable of carrying a large and heavy nuclear warhead.

Trump is due to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose country is North Korea's main trading partner, on the sidelines of the G20 on Saturday.

The US Air Force said Thursday's B-1 bomber flight over the South China Sea was "to exercise the rights of freedom of navigation".

While the Pentagon has drawn up an array of plans for a possible military intervention in North Korea, Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said he did not think America was closer to conflict because of the ICBM test.

The United States circulated the statement for adoption by the 15-member council after announcing plans for a new sanctions resolution, but Russian Federation raised objections, UN diplomats said.

The exercise came as tensions spiked after North Korea launched an ICBM on Tuesday, raising the stakes in the global standoff over its nuclear weapons program.

Any military action against North Korea would nearly immediately cause North Korea to react.

Thursday's flight of B-1s over the East and South China seas was a two-part mission, the US Air Force said.

Following North Korea's missile launch, Trump expressed frustration with China over its expanding trade with North Korea.

"If the U.S. imperialists dare provoke a war against the DPRK, they will have to face those of faith who do never compromise with aggressors and are full of resolute will to declare destruction to the USA imperialism".

In an announcement of the missile test, North Korean officials called the launch, which leader Kim Jong-Un supervised, a "glistening miracle".

What did North Korea actually accomplish?

"As far as North Korea is concerned, I don't know, we will see what happens", said Trump.

North Korea said the missile was a new type of two-stage missile called the Kwasong-14.
