Trump, China's Xi committed to denuclearization of Korean peninsula - White House

U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearize the Korean peninsula during a phone conversation on Friday, the White House said in a statement.

Trump also mentioned that he will push for more funding to go towards anti-missile defense due to the threat of North Korea and other countries. The US gets better outcomes in worldwide disputes when the president makes more resolute statements, according to Roseanne McManus, an assistant professor at Baruch College, City University of NY, who studied the issue for her new book, "Statements of Resolve: Achieving Coercive Credibility in global Conflict".

In comments made via state media, Mr Kim said Mr Trump was "extremely getting on the nerves" of his soldiers by making comments showing his "senility" again.

First, understand that North Korea is a pawn in a geostrategic chess game being played by China and Russian Federation against the United States. And he's not going to threaten South Korea.

Trump has pushed China to do more to pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear weapons program.

The publication came after US President Donald Trump stepped up his rhetoric against North Korea, threatening Pyongyang with a military solution. "We have tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what I'm saying because they're saying finally we have a president that's sticking up for our nation and frankly sticking up for our friends and our allies".

North Korea threatened this week to launch a missile at the waters near Guam - a USA territory in the Pacific some 4,000 miles west of Hawaii.

Still, Mr. Trump amplified the warning on Thursday, saying maybe his "fire and fury" threat "wasn't tough enough".

According to the recent press report, which remains unverified by NPR, North Korea could have up to 60 nuclear weapons.

"China hopes all sides can do more to help ease the present tense situation and increase mutual trust, rather than taking turns in shows of strength, the ministry said on its website".

Android O is expected to be be released on August 21
As noted by Google, the latest version is created to work on recent Nexus and Pixel devices running Android 7.1.1 and above. Android O release date for Google's Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones is said to have been delayed for some unknown reason.

However, continued missile tests from North Korea including two Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles angered the west and Trump's initially warm embrace of China turned cold.

Guam is home to several bases for USA armed forces, including the Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.

If Pyongyang's confrontational rhetoric is little more than brazen attention-seeking, its motives are at least partly economic.

But, Snyder noted that the latest understanding of North Korean military capability is that the country may lack the re-entry technology necessary for an effective attack targeting specific parts of the US mainland.

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely", Trump tweeted on Friday. "I just wanted to call and say hello".

Tom Malinowski, assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights and labor in the Obama administration, recently advised a number of steps: "Flooding the zone" with information (designed to break the regime's grip on information and provide dissenters with ways to counter the regime's propaganda), emphasizing human rights and peaceful reunification, imposing sanctions on but not entirely isolating North Korea, strengthening our alliances with South Korea and other Asian democracies, and using intermediaries to warn North Korean elites.

"Force has always been an option, but it has always been the last option, not the first", Soderberg said.

Other critics of Trump's foreign policy point out that there is no certain time frame for such an effort and remind us that China has emphatically resisted reunification.

He said, "You can ask the question" about whether Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should remain in his position if he cannot pass a plan to repeal and replace health care, change the tax code and move an infrastructure proposal.

If the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) fires missiles toward Guam, they would take about 14 minutes to reach the island and the alert system there would notified the public, Guam's Homeland Security Office said Thursday. It has a strategically located US air base, a Navy installation that includes a submarine squadron, a Coast Guard group and roughly 6,000 USA military service members.
