Trump derides North Korea's leader as 'Rocket Man'

Tillerson said the USA strategy is to pursue a "peaceful pressure campaign" based on what he called the four "nos": not seeking either regime change or collapse in North Korea, an accelerated reunification of the Korean Peninsula, or a reason to send in military forces.

"If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed and we all know that and none of us want that", Haley said.

Nikki Haley told CNN that the UN Security Council has run out of options to rein in North Korea. "So, having said that, I have no problem with kicking it to (Defense Secretary James) Mattis because I think he has plenty of options".

The meeting will be held during the annual General Assembly gathering of world leaders at the United Nations where Mr Trump will meet the leaders of Japan and South Korea on the sidelines to address the crisis.

Trump spoke over phone with Moon two days after North Korea fired a missile over Japan.

Kim has threatened Guam, a USA territory in the Pacific, and has fired missiles over Japan, a US ally.

However, North Korea gets all this cash for explosions through its exports of oil and natural gas, which are its major source of income.

For just under half an hour Saturday night, President Trump and his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, tackled the missile threat looming from Pyongyang.

Donald Trump has taken a swipe at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, labelling him "Rocket Man" following the secretive state's controversial missile tests.

The global community is scrambling to contain an increasingly belligerent North Korea, which in recent weeks has prompted global alarm by conducting its sixth and largest nuclear test and firing long-range missiles over Japan that it says could reach the U.S. mainland. He also told Fox News that Washington needs to move fast as Pyongyang continues to conduct nuclear and missile tests. "Too bad!" The "gas lines" were a reference to United Nations sanctions against the North. They plan to meet this week at the U.N. General Assembly.

"And none of us want that".

Democratic US Senator Dianne Feinstein said on Sunday that Trump should not rule out talks with North Korea before it agrees to end its nuclear program.

The Wall Street Journal and other news organizations reported Saturday that Trump administration officials, speaking at a climate meeting in Montreal, discussed a compromise that would involve staying in the deal but revising USA climate change goals.
