Japan's Tough Choices As North Korean Missiles Fly

North Korea problem cannot be solved without Russia China – German FM

Both China and Russian Federation have repeatedly called for a peaceful solution and talks to resolve the North Korean issue.

Mattis indicated that North Korea seems to be running missile testing exercises that fall just short of warranting more aggressive responses from the U.S.

Diplomacy and dialogue would not work with North Korea and concerted pressure by the entire global community was essential to tackle the threats [it] posed, he said.

The Guardian: Latest North Korea missile test ends South's talk of engagement - "For some diplomats there is a fear that mounting sanctions are not deterring Kim, and are only incentivising him to speed up his programme".

"As long as the U.S. and other Western countries, their allies and neighbors of North Korea - South Korea, Japan and other regional countries - leave open the possibility of external interference and toppling the current regime there, unfortunately North Korea and its authorities will continue implementing its nuclear program", said Kosachev, who chairs Russia's Federation Council (upper house of parliament) International Affairs Committee.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un is also aware of the fate of other dictators who lack nuclear weapons.

Later, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told reporters that "some related parties" — a reference to the US and North Korea — "keep sending threatening messages both in words and deeds that include warnings of military action". It was the country's longest-ever test flight of a ballistic missile.

The US envoy appeared on CNN Sunday, asserting that the president's "fire and fury" comment about North Korea's nuclear program last month is serious.

Much of the regime's domestic legitimacy rests on portraying the country as under constant threat from the USA and its regional allies, South Korea and Japan.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in suggested to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on 15 September that they should both refrain from overreacting to North Korean provocations to avoid any accidental conflict.

Xinhua did not link the drills to current tension over North Korea.

A USA aircraft carrier will conduct a joint exercise with South Korean forces next month amid rising geopolitical risks on the Korean Peninsula, defence officials confirmed here on Monday.

The China Daily yesterday said that sanctions should be given time to bite and that the door must be left open to talks.

This missile was sacked just four days after the United Nations Security Council had passed a resolution toughening sanctions against North Korea.
