House to vote on North Korean sanctions next week

In the Reuters interview, Trump acknowledged that North Korea was his biggest global challenge and said he hoped Kim was rational in his approach to the possible conflict.

While I often find myself the pessimist in these kinds of crises, given the penchant for United States presidents to turn to war as a default foreign policy option, I'm guessing that won't happen in this case, and for the same reason I that do not think we will see USA troops confronting the determined ethnic Russian secessionists in eastern Ukraine.

To some longtime North Korea watchers there are parallels with the authoritarian state's own brinkmanship diplomacy. Like when Trump says that he misses his old life and thought that being president "would be easier".

"There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea".

ECONOMIC DATA: Official figures showed the British economy slowed markedly in the first quarter as the weaker pound made life more expensive, hurting spending.

Referring to the 2004 film Team America, which mocked former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, Mr Johnson told LBC: 'North Korea was a kind of hilarious thing. "I'm not giving him credit or not giving him credit". The Trump administration said it wants to exert economic and diplomatic pressure to push North Korea to change course from developing nuclear weapons. "But you know what he did well?" He is a very good man, and I got to know him very well.

On Chinese president Xi and North Korea: "He certainly doesn't want to see turmoil and death".

"We will maintain our close coordination and cooperation with our allies, especially the Republic of Korea and Japan, as we work together to preserve stability and prosperity in the region".

US ally South Korea revealed on Wednesday its progress on installing the primary parts of a USA missile defense system known as the Terminal High-Altitude Defense System, or THAAD. A proposal to encourage U.S. companies to bring home profits could cause capital to "flee away from emerging markets", said Margaret Yang of CMC Markets in a report.

He could not predict what would come out of the session, "but of course they'll be talking about possible next steps".

'Today I'm going to the United Nations Security Council in NY to see what we can do at the UN to try to build an worldwide consensus.

On speaking to Taiwan's leader again: "Well, my problem is that I've established a very good personal relationship with Xi".

"I express my expectations that ASEAN which attaches great importance to the regional peace and stability will make an issue of the US-South Korean joint military exercises at ASEAN conferences from the fair position and play an active role in safeguarding the peace and safety of Korean Peninsula", the letter said. I have to say, there is an end.

He told the Press Association: "We can not have insane people holding the world hostage". When you take a look at what's going on with the cutting off of the heads. Otherwise it's really tough. We haven't seen that since medieval times. "They said, 'Is there any way we can do something without you - without termination?' I said, 'What do you want to do?' He said, 'Well, we'd like to negotiate.' I said we'll think about it", he said in the interview.
