North Korea could use holiday as excuse to provoke U.S., experts say

Nuclear weapons explosion

"Agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of USA negotiators".

When a reporter asked what he meant by "storm", Trump winked and replied, "You'll find out". "Sorry, but only one thing will work!".

The US and South Korea have been aware of North Korea's bold hacking operations for several years, linking Pyongyang to a series of sophisticated cyberattacks.

Trump did not make clear to what he was referring, but his comments seemed to be a further suggestion that military action was on his mind.

"It is right now a diplomatically led economic sanction buttressed effort to try and turn North Korea off this path", Mattis said Monday during his opening remarks at the Association of the United States Army's annual meeting in Washington.

The president's latest tweets come as the world continues to try to decipher another cryptic message that Trump issued on Thursday night at the White House, as he posed for a photo with the country's top military leaders.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has promoted his sister to a senior ruling party post, state media said yesterday, and praised the country's nuclear weapons program, which has sparked global alarm.

"We have a very good relationship", Trump said of Tillerson on Saturday. Trump likewise said he has "total confidence" in Tillerson, despite such reports.

Carter, however, does not appear to be listening to his successor in the White House.

Corker was critical of Trump for undermining Tillerson's diplomatic efforts regarding North Korea, stating, "He ends up not being supported in the way I would hope a secretary of state would be supported. trying to solve numerous world's problems without the support and help I'd like to see him have".

Tensions soared as Kim traded verbal threats with US President Donald Trump, who tweeted on Saturday that "only one thing will work" to tame Pyongyang.

North Korea is preparing to test-launch such a missile, a Russian MP who had just returned from a visit to Pyongyang was quoted as saying.

The mutual defence treaty between the United States and South Korea means the American military would assume operational control of the alliance if a war breaks out.

This included increasing surveillance with South Korea's RC-800 and RF-16 reconnaissance planes, Peace Eye E-737 airborne early warning and control aircraft and P-3C maritime patrol aircraft.

The officials said, "Some movements have been continuously detected from the North's missile facilities and bases".

This week marks two significant dates for North Korea - the anniversaries of its first nuclear test and the foundation of the ruling Worker's Party of Korea.
