Don't sleepwalk into war over North Korea, warns United Nations boss

Guterres said those sanctions need to be implemented "by North Korea first of all, but also fully implemented by all the other countries whose role is crucial". The most important one is that "Washington [gives] up staging military drills near the Korean Peninsula".

According to Dzhabarov, the Americans have already violated their promise to curb the exercises in the autumn.

Military researcher Matt Korda says in a post on 38 North that there's evidence of lax safety standards at North Korean nuclear plants and that Pyongyang would have trouble containing the fallout from such a disaster.

After a roughly two-month hiatus in launches, North Korea fired a missile on November 29 that it said was a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting any target on the United States mainland.

The secretary of State also urged Moscow and Beijing to increase pressure on Pyongyang and go "beyond full implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions", sanctioning the country over its nuclear program and ballistic missile tests.

Last week, his top political official, Jeffrey Feltman, traveled to Pyongyang for the first in-depth political exchange of views between United Nations and North Korean officials to take place in that country in nearly eight years. The official explained that the Trump administration has consistently held that all talks with North Korea must wait until Pyongyang has fundamentally improved its attitude and that it will not repeat bad policies from the past.

He added: "I am literally willing to put hundreds of thousands of people at risk, knowing that millions and millions of people will be at risk if we don't [stop North Korea]". Morgulov told Interfax: "Russia will not be part of this", adding that the sanctions were "counterproductive" and were hurting ordinary people.

US President Donald Trump is now trying to get Vladimir Putin and Russian Federation onside to put an end to North Korea's nuclear ambitions. When asked by the Hankyoreh for the White House's position on Tillerson's proposal, an official from the National Security Council said that the US's North Korean policy has not changed and that now is definitely not the time for dialogue.

His speech came as the Japanese government decided on Friday to freeze the assets of 19 more North Korean companies as part of its unilateral sanctions in response to the North's repeated defiance of a United Nations ban on nuclear and ballistic missile tests. However, recently both sides have shown some interest in resolving the crisis via diplomatic means.

Johnson said that the best way to resolve the North Korean crisis would be through economic pressure, not military action, Reuters reported. "It becomes necessary for worldwide powers to not merely put pressure on the DPRK (North Korea), but to put pressure on the U.S. for direct talks, formalizing relations and negotiating a lasting peace".
