Markey to Trump: Negotiate with Kim Jong Un

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday praised the "strong commitment" of President Donald Trump to global and allied security after his second call with the USA leader in four days.

According to NBC News, the National Security Council has presented Donald Trump and his advisers with a range of options to counteract the North Korean threat, among them positioning nuclear weapons in South Korea or assassinating the country's dictator Kim Jong-un. Hagiuda said that given the Trump-Xi meeting, the Japanese and US leaders discussed how Japan, the United States, South Korea and China should deal with North Korea while working with one another.

Trump authorized the missile strike after the Syrian regime was blamed for a horrific chemical attack that killed dozens of people, including children.

"The US missile attack against Syria is a clear and unforgivable act of aggression against a sovereign state and we strongly condemn this", North Korea's foreign ministry was quoted as saying.

North Korea said Sunday that us missile strikes against Syria last week were "absolutely unpardonable", according to a Korean Central News Agency report citing a foreign ministry spokesman.

But, the U.S.is running out of options in dealing with the threat posed by the North Korean leader, according to Ret.

H.R. McMaster says there is no contradiction between comments by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who says IS must be defeated first, and Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations who contends that getting Assad out is a priority.

Jared Kushner omits some foreign contacts on security form
Kushner's initial mistake, one knowledgeable source said, was due to the transition's effort to get the forms done quickly. But it's not just who is being replaced that will cause a firestorm, but who is being considered for their replacements.

You may recall the recent response to the US and South Korea conducting drills with the USS Carl Vinson, a Navy supercarrier with nuclear capability, being involved. -South Korean war games, which are held annually and are now underway, have raised tensions on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war.

U.S. military chiefs are said to be preparing for a "war today" scenario to deal with North Korea.

Others pointed out that the fact that North Korea already has nuclear capabilities and the potential threat to US allies South Korea and Japan make it unlikely that Washington would risk military action.

Trump is expected to urge Xi that China be more active in using its political and economic leverage to curb North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Washington denies it has any intention of invading the North.

Al-Assad thanked Kim for recognising the Syrian struggle to "meet such challenges as sinister actions of the world's terrorists and encouraged Syria to successfully weather the crisis without fail", North Korean media said.
