United States will launch 'massive military response' to North Korea threats: Mattis

The statement was in direct response to North Korea's successful test of a powerful nuclear device just before midnight Saturday night. "North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test", Trump tweeted, "Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and unsafe to the United States".

His words echo those of President Trump, who took to Twitter following Pyongyang's announcement to state that appeasement would not work with North Korea. But the North Korean apparently thought that the president's threats were hallow.

Mattis noted, however, that the USA does not seek North Korea's annihilation.

"We have many military options, and the President wanted to be briefed on each one of them", he said.

Trump is also weighing whether to pull out of a free trade deal with South Korea, which Klobuchar says would be a mistake at this juncture.

Theresa May, British prime minister, said: "I discussed the serious and grave threat these risky and illegal actions present with President Abe in Japan this week and reiterate the call we jointly made for tougher action, including increasing the pace of implementation of existing sanctions and looking urgently in the UN Security Council at new measures".

The South would discuss deploying "the strongest strategic assets of the U.S. military", he cited Moon as saying - potentially a reference to tactical nuclear weapons which were withdrawn by Washington in 1991.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told Fox News Sunday he was working on a new sanctions package.

This afternoon, Mattis said that Kim Jong Un should take heed of the United Nations Security Council's unified voice.

"We are going to work with our allies, we'll work with China, but people need to cut off North Korea economically".

"It is significantly hurting regional and global peace and stability", he added.

Mattis's aggressive, holiday-weekend statement comes hours after North Korean state media announced the country had successfully tested a miniaturized hydrogen bomb capable of fitting on an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

Terry Myerson , head of the Windows group at Microsoft , promised that this fourth update to Windows 10 would be the best yet. However, Microsoft has finally put a shipping date on the Fall Creators Update, and the big day is scheduled for October 17.

North Korea's traditional ally China also denounced the test, slamming Pyongyang for ignoring worldwide condemnation of its atomic weapons program.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned Sunday's nuclear test.

The Security Council is expected to meet on Monday morning to address the matter.

If North Korea hasn't already developed a hydrogen bomb then it is likely it will, before long, unless dramatically stopped. Earlier on Sunday, the president issued a series of tweets commenting on Pyongyang's sixth test.

"Our message to the Chinese is that we think there's more scope for you to put economic pressure on the North Koreans".

There was no immediate confirmation outside North Korea that the test involved a hydrogen bomb, or that it was small enough to be loaded onto a missile. It said leader Kim Jong Un attended a meeting of the ruling party's presidium and signed the go-ahead order.
