In a briefing to reporters at the White House Friday, Trump's national security adviser H.R. McMaster said that Iran and North Korea will be the top of the agenda.

President Donald Trump has responded to North Korea's most recent missile launch with a vow that the United States and its allies will not be intimidated. The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said trade with North Korea would be cut 90 percent after the massive sanctions package agreed by the Security Council. The US must follow through on Defence Secretary Mattis's much needed "iron-clad" guarantees to Japan and South Korea by reinforcing America's military presence in the region.

Ultimately, the U.S. needs to not only deter North Korea, but also to reassure Japan and South Korea that they will neither be abandoned by their ally nor entrapped in a wider conflict precipitated by America's own independent strategic decisions.

The statement appeared unlikely to change North Korea's behavior.

"We will defend our people and our civilization from all who dare to threaten our way of life", Trump said at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Friday after Pyongyang conducted its longest-ever test flight of a ballistic missile. And there's little sign that talks involving the U.S., North Korea and other interested countries can be arranged amid the nearly weekly barrage of weapons tests and threats, let alone stop the North's determined nuclear march.

"Trump's audience will be very aware of his mood swings", said Richard Gowan, a United Nations expert with the European Council on Foreign Relations told Politico.

As president-elect, he called the United Nations.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido Friday, the latest in a stream of missile tests that have looked to defy the global community. And he comes out with USA being very strong in the end.

"The South Korean government said they fired a missile within minutes afterwards, from their coastline".

"If North Korea continues to walk down this path, it has no bright future". She said, however, that options for dealing with the regime of Kim Jong Un are not limited to diplomacy.

At the beginning of this year, North Korea's Kim announced plans to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile that could strike the USA mainland.

Haley predicted that the US approach at the United Nations summit would be "solid" and "strong", as diplomats and top USA officials tackle global challenges.

"There is a military option".

Tillerson noted that China, which supplies North Korea with most of its oil, and Russian Federation, as the largest employer of North Korean forced labor, have a unique responsibility in the diplomatic situation.

The North Korean state-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun on Friday said in an editorial, "If the USA continues to walk on the current course, we will take stronger actions for our self-defense".
