North Korea vs United States: A nuclear war that needs to stop

North Korea vs United States: A nuclear war that needs to stop

North Korea also conducted two nuclear tests a year ago, including one on the September 9 anniversary of the nation's founding.

Japan has reportedly made a decision to enhance its support and cooperation for developing countries in Africa and Asia which have diplomatic relations with North Korea.

Scott said that the fact that North Korea continued to reinforce its declarations of intent to strike the U.S. mainland made the USA government treat the matter with urgency.

US President Donald Trump has accused Russian Federation of "not helping us at all with North Korea" which has come under tough economic sanctions meant to pressure Kim Jong-Un to change course.

As the worldwide community is facing a frustrating stalemate in the joint efforts to stop North Korea's nuclear and missile development, Trump has yet to realize that sanctions do not always bring expected results, Dr. Srinivasan Sitaraman, an associate professor at Department of Political Science at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, told Sputnik. "The irony here is he calls everybody outside of North Korea the most vicious names".

Russia does not plan to join the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday, stressing that Moscow shared a common interest in building a nuclear-weapon-free world but not using the methods, on which the treaty is based.

"The Trump administration came in and said we're putting everything on the table from diplomacy to military options", he said.

"In my view, it (the heightened tensions) is not because of the rhetoric, it is because of a country that has had 23 missile launches and an ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile) that can hit the USA, taking out Washington and NY, and a nuclear test of a hydrogen bomb", DeTrani said. "If you have a man-made problem, then man can solve those man-made problems".

North Korea is believed to acquire foreign currencies through the trade of arms and ammunition in Africa, where some nations also rely on Pyongyang to train soldiers.

But some African governments began moving to sever economic ties with Pyongyang last September, when it conducted its sixth nuclear test, telling North Korean military and business officials to leave, the source said. He went on to add that the United States has ordered more missile defense.

US President Donald Trump and Kim have threatened to unleash the power of their nuclear weapons on each other's countries.
