McMaster says there is military option against N. Korea

Two days ago, neighbours South Korea welcomed the fresh sanctions imposed on North Korea by the UN Security Council which was unanimously adopted a US-drafted resolution.

Queens Congressman Joseph Crowley, the House Democratic caucus chairman, criticized North Korea for launching a ballistic missile over a northern Japanese island on Friday, saying that it is hurting efforts for peace and stability in the region.

In response to the United Nations resolution, Pyongyang issued a statement that explicitly threatened the destruction of the US and Japan, and called for the U.N.to be dissolved.

North Korea has fired 21 missiles during 14 tests since February, further perfecting its technology with each launch.

Speaking after the launch, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said it was "totally unacceptable" and went against "the worldwide community's strong, united will for a peaceful solution" to the Korean crisis.

"In the face of this threat, France is ready to work, notably within the UN Security Council and the European Union, to strengthen measures aimed at convincing the Pyongyang regime that it has no interest in escalation, and to bring it to the negotiating table", she said.

Speaking on Friday, US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said military actions were possible.

Kim Jong Un's regime fired an intermediate-range missile over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean - the second such test in recent weeks.

Kim also noted that North Korea had been able to make this astonishing progress on its nuclear and missile programs despite more than a decade of worldwide sanctions aimed at cutting off its ability to produce the parts and funding it needed.

Reuters reported on behalf of Japan's NHK TV that this missile was released at 6.00am in the morning and it went through Japan's Hokkaido at 7 in the last 6 minutes.

"If North Korea then steps back its testing, then you have the space to say 'ok, what are the conditions that we're going to talk about?'" "They should do more to find effective ways to resume dialogue and negotiation", Ambassador Cui Tiankai said. But, it added "Americans still think North Korea is bluffing".

North Korea, which also sparked a global outcry with its most powerful nuclear detonation yet earlier this month, has vowed to continue tests amid what it describes as Western hostility.
