Trump keeps pressure on North Korea as force remains an option

"In case the USA eventually does rig up the illegal and unlawful "resolution" on harsher sanctions, the DPRK shall make absolutely sure that the United States pays a due price", it said, using its formal country name.

He said that he would not bargain with North Korea in public.

A US-drafted resolution includes a proposal to freeze North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's assets and an oil embargo.

Trump requested China to "do more" on North Korea and after nuclear tests conducted on Sunday, he tweeted that Pyongyang has become a "threat and embarrassment to China", in that way criticizing Chinese President Xi Jinping.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un hosted a grand celebration on the successful test of the country's sixth and strongest nuclear bomb, saying the test is a "great victory" and lauded the country's nuclear scientists and technicians.

That sanctions package was expected to put a huge dent in North Korea's economy, cutting its annual earnings by a third.

"I could also imagine such a format to settle the North Korea conflict", she said.

The newspaper of North Korea's ruling Workers Party, Rodong Sinmun, reported that the Kim Jong-un regime will continue to develop nuclear weapons to boost the country's security.

Meanwhile, in South Korea, dozens of people were reportedly injured on Thursday as local residents opposed to the installation of a controversial USA anti-missile system near their town clashed with police. Furthermore, during the deployment of the THAAD systems to South Korea, the demonstrations against these systems further complicated relations with the U.S. Although the South Korean government did not seem very enthusiastic about this deployment, the latest provocations by the North Korean regime made it hard to resist.

Ahead of a possible showdown in the U.N. Security Council over a US -led bid to enact the toughest sanctions yet on North Korea, Kim Jong-un's regime warned Monday that the USA would pay "due price".

Meanwhile, two Japanese fighters and two United States bombers carried out a joint exercise over the East China Sea on Saturday, Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said in Tokyo.

Security Council diplomats, who weren't authorized to speak publicly because talks have been private, said the USA and China were still negotiating the text late Sunday.

While public antipathy towards Koreans does not appear to have escalated in reaction to the North's latest nuclear test and missile launches, the community has been the target of abuse by Japanese nationalists after similar incidents in the past.

Thirdly, the crisis is also taking its toll on China's relations with South Korea. Beijing says the system's radar can penetrate far into its territory.

One of the main guidelines of this proposal identified nine cargo ships that broke previous United Nations sanctions by conducting commercial activities on behalf of North Korea. "I am convinced that further development of the bilateral relations in all fields will conform with the fundamental interests of the two peoples and contribute to consolidating the security and stability of the Korean peninsula and Northeast Asia as a whole".
