"And in order to do that, we need North Korea to feel the pressure, but if they go down this road, there will be consequences", said Japanese Ambassador Koro Bessho ahead of the meeting, which came after North Korea said it had detonated a hydrogen bomb underground on Sunday. "I know it was frustrating for the global community, but when I'm passionate about something, I just let it absorb my attention completely".

The test, said Suh Hoon, director of the National Intelligence Service, might be carried out around Saturday, or September 9, when North Korea celebrates its foundation day.

The U.S. has been trying for years to persuade the so-called "Hermit Kingdom" to abandon its nuclear ambitions. "The potential consequences of military action are too horrific".

On North Korea Mr Trump said: "I would prefer not going the route of the military, but it's something certainly that could happen".

Despite pessimism about discussions with Pyongyang, a U.S. official speaking on condition of anonymity said there was a chance that economic pressure, especially from China, combined with an agreement to negotiate could convince North Korea to limit its nuclear arsenal or even sign the 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty.

His options for responding to the latest test are limited: Any attack would provoke a brutal counter-attack from North Korea, which would put millions of people in the South Korean capital of Seoul at risk. They were nuclear talks including both Koreas, China, Russia, Japan and the U.S. DeTrani says the leverage that the Chinese "have on crude oil is vast".

"No matter how the USA and its puppets kick up a ruckus, our republic, which has a strong military and the most powerful Juche bombs and weapons, and whose territory has all turned into fortresses, and all its people armed to the teeth, will remain an eternal iron-clad citadel", it said.

Speakers at the rally said the North's military "will put an end to the destiny of the gangster-like United States imperialists through the most merciless and strongest preemptive strikes if they and the hordes of traitors finally ignite a war", KCNA reported.

North Korean ally China and neighboring Russian Federation hold veto power on the Security Council.

A Gallup Korea survey released on Friday found 58 per cent of South Koreans felt there was no possibility North Korea would cause a war, while 37 per cent said they thought it would.

If these are plentiful, as astronomers theorize, they could merge at the center of a galaxy to form a supermassive black hole . A near-infrared image of a black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy as seen with Hubble Space Telescope/NICMOS.

The UN Security Council barred North Korea from exporting coal, iron, lead and seafood, along with other restrictions.

An unannounced missile heading toward the U.S. mainland from North Korea could cause a nuclear retaliation, so Pyongyang would most likely try to aim the missile elsewhere.

Rodman, who is also a fan of the US President, said: "I just want to try to straighten things out for everyone to get along together".

"Washington's statements about having choice options, as well as attempts to use unprecedented aggressive sanctions and pressure to intimidate us and make us reverse our course, are a huge mistake", he said.

TRUMP: I don't negotiate with you.

'US never out of diplomatic solutions on N Korea'
So the question is whether North Korea will put some checks on itself as it seeks to expand its weapons tests in the Pacific. Tensions between America, North Korea, and the hermit state's regional neighbors have been rising for months.
