Sen. Joe Manchin (R-WV) says China needs to step up in helping to stop North Korea's nuclear program.

Qian emphasized the mutual benefits of China's trade with the USA and said that couldn't be linked to issues concerning the Pyongyang regime.

It is simple. While Trump is tweeting and playing golf, North Korea is getting closer to having a nuclear missile that could strike a major U.S. city.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe spoke with Trump on Monday and agreed on the need for more action on North Korea just hours after the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations said Washington is "done talking about North Korea".

Abe and Trump did not discuss military action against North Korea, nor what would constitute the crossing of a "red line" by Pyongyang, Deputy Chief Cabinet spokesman Koichi Hagiuda told reporters. As your administration considers appropriate responses to this growing danger, I urge you to apply additional pressure on China to play a constructive role in reining in North Korea.

The top Democrat in the US Senate is urging Donald Trump to get off of his backside and apply more economic pressure to China as the North Korea crisis accelerates. It marked the second ICBM launch in 24 days and the kind of technical achievement that US presidents said the country could not tolerate. Reports indicate that over 90 percent of North Korea's foreign trade is with China and 95 percent of its foreign direct investment comes from China.

While this has anxious the USA for some time, especially as they move to solid fueled missiles, the official said the North Koreans continue to make advances in their ability to hide their actions from the US. One of the options is reported to be Washington's commitment to withdraw most of its troops from the Korean peninsula in the case that the North Korean regime collapses.

I write with great concern over the increasing threat posed by North Korea.

Are the North Koreans even interested in talks? He said that while a denuclearized Korean peninsula would a welcome development, the most unsafe thing about the weapons is the man who wields them: "So from the administration's perspective", he said, "the most important thing we can do is separate those two".
