China urges North Korea, US to stop escalating war of words

Twitter has no problem with Donald Trump's'newsworthy tweets

It made no mention of crude oil, which makes up the bulk of Chinese energy supplies to North Korea and is not covered by the United Nations sanctions.

Jun said the meeting will focus on security issues.

"(Chung's report) also said there are worries over military conflict being sparked by accidental incidents", said Park Wan-ju, lawmaker and head spokesman of the ruling Democratic Party.

Trump blamed previous USA presidents for failing to deal with the North Korean threat.

North Korea has all the rights to take counter measures to prevent USA fighter jets entering its premises, said Ri Yong-ho, Minister of Foreign Affairs, North Korea, in a statement.

Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test on September 3 and has launched dozens of missiles this year as it accelerates a program aimed at enabling it to target the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

"Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down the United States' strategic bombers even when they're not yet inside the airspace border of our country".

Twitter is citing "newsworthiness" and the public interest as reasons why it didn't remove President Donald Trump's declaration in a tweet that North Korean leaders may not "be around much longer".




China is North Korea's main trading partner, making Beijing's cooperation essential to the success of sanctions aimed at stopping the North's pursuit of weapons technology.

Park said President Moon told the meeting that Washington and Seoul agreed that pressure needed to be applied to North Korea, with the door to talks still open.

Former general Rob Givens, who served in US Air Force, said that in event of a war in Korea, only 20,000 people die per day in South Korea, according to Pentagon estimates.

What kind of assets would be rotated was not specified.

Even though China has supported a series of tough United Nations resolutions targeting North Korea's economy, many experts are skeptical that Chinese officials and companies are fully complying with the sanctions.

Beijing opposes THAAD because it believes its powerful radar could be used to look inside its territory.

In Moscow, Russia's Foreign Ministry said it was working behind the scenes to find a political solution and that using sanctions against North Korea was nearly exhausted.
