Trump Vows North Korea Could be Met With 'Fire and Fury'

North Korea's official news agency threatened to make the United States "pay the price for its crime thousands of times", and North Korea's foreign minister warned that warned that Pyongyang "will, under no circumstances, put the nuclear and ballistic missiles on the negotiating table". "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump said as he held a discussion on the opioid crisis at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

Referring to Mr Jong Un, he added: "He has been very threatening beyond a normal statement".

The Washington Post first reported that the nation had such capability, based on a Defense Intelligence Agency assessment read to the newspaper it verified with two USA officials.

Haley appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss the Trump administration's success at the United Nations Saturday when a USA -drafted resolution to hike sanctions on the rogue regime was approved 15-0 by the U.N. Security Council.

"The best signal that North Korea could give us that they're prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in the Philippines Monday.

Pyongyang's statement said the sanctions were caused by a "heinous U.S. plot to isolate and stifle" North Korea.

The sanctions were pushed by the United States in response to the North's test-launches of two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July.

China might launch military offensive in 2 weeks: Chinese expert
Beijing has accused New Delhi of violating a convention signed in 1890 between Britain and China relating to Sikkim and Tibet. If there is war, it will be a US-China war, with India on the US side, in the South China Sea and in the Himalayas.

United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley told NBC's "Today" show that sanctions force North Korea to rethink its endgame.

Two officials familiar with the document, which was completed last month, verified the contents to the Post.

According to a USA official briefed on the assessment, this milestone does not mean North Korea has a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) as they must show the weapon can survive reentry.

The new assessment follows a separate U.S. government report estimating that Pyongyang possesses up to 60 nuclear weapons.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump highlighted his administration's success in leading the UN Security Council to unanimously pass sanctions on North Korea.

Despite the United States' insistence that North Korea halt its missile tests, USA spy agencies detected the rogue communist regime loading two anti-ship cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country's east coast just days ago. We must be tough & decisive!'
