Peace with North Korea a 'possibility' says top USA general

Peace with North Korea a 'possibility' says top USA general

Russian Federation joined with China on August 17 in urging the United States not to take military action against North Korea, saying the escalating threats of war being traded between Washington and Pyongyang could reach the "point of no return".

"Despite an agreement between the two countries, an individual forced into labor still has a civil right against the company, and that's our Constitutional Court's and Supreme Court's judicial precedents", Moon said during a press conference marking his 100th day in office.

Moon declared the decision needed to be made "by ourselves and not by anyone else", adding that he intends to prevent a war with North Korea "at any cost". But fears of conflict remain as the US and South Korea next week begin military drills that the North views as preparation for invasion, and as Washington seeks to stop the North's progress toward having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the continental United States.

On Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump doubled down on his statement that he would unleash "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if Pyongyang continued its threats, saying in a tweet that "military solutions" were "locked and loaded" for use against North Korea.

The three-country visit is in "support (of) Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's diplomatic and economic campaign to deter North Korea" from seeking an effective nuclear deterrent, according to a U.S. Department of Defense statement.

Saudi king orders Qatar border be reopened for hajj pilgrims
He ordered that private jets belonging to Saudi airlines be sent to Doha airport "to bring all Qatari pilgrims on his expenses". They accused Qatar of destabilizing the region by supporting "terrorists, extremist and sectarian organizations".

Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, a Republican, told NBC News that Trump told him that "if thousands die, they're going to die over there".

China accounts for about 90 percent of North Korean trade but moved in February to suspend North Korea's coal imports until the end of the year.

He also called for the resumption of a dialogue with North Korea.

The recently elected South Korean president had previously referred to a "red line" that he had urged North Korea not to cross, but had not defined this "red line" in any way. "We continue to be interested in finding a way to get dialogue, but that's up to him", he said.

North Korea's rapid progress in developing nuclear weapons and missiles capable of reaching the US mainland has fuelled a surge in tensions in recent days.

"Thus this mechanism is a step to reduce misconceptions in either side's military intention, although the probability of all-out war with North Korea is low", she said.

And in Washington, senior officials, while insisting the U.S. military stands ready to respond to any aggression from Pyongyang, stressed that they are working in close coordination with both South Korea and Japan.

North Korea said its last test of an intercontinental ballistic missile in late August was a "perfect and big success" with both re-entry and warhead control capabilities showing no fault. The U.S. and President Trump have often called on China to do more to rein in its neighbor. "I think our collective challenge is to sincerely and with candor attack these issues that we have to address". U.S. military action, he said, requires Seoul's consent.

The government in Seoul, however, is far from indifferent to its northern neighbor.
