It is the second time this week that a key member of the USA administration has tried to calm the waters after bellicose comments from the president.

Mattis stressed, however, that the Trump administration is pursuing its goal for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula via diplomatic means. He said Kim Jong Un's regime should listen to and "act on that clarity".

"You'll see, you'll see".

While Trump's comments have been criticized as incendiary by some political opponents, foreign governments and experts, they have been supported by others. "But if the North were to act, the US would have to deploy far more to the peninsula and the region as quickly as possible". "I'm quite proud of what we've accomplished".

Those looking for words of comfort in regards to North Korea and its nuclear weapons program need not read any further.

Dileep's bail plea pushed to Friday
The arrest and the reports that Dileep masterminded the attack left the film fraternity in shock and disbelief. They managed to influence the media, a section of police officials and political leaders, it is alleged.

But UN Secretary General António Guterres hinted that Trump's remarks risked derailing the diplomatic process.

"We're trying to convey to the North Koreans we are not your enemy, we are not your threat, but you are presenting an unacceptable threat to us, and we have to respond", he said last week. "I don't want to, but if we have to, we'll go to war".

Matthew Rycroft told reporters at United Nations headquarters in NY that the U.S. and UK have been very clear in demanding a halt to North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes.

Meanwhile, various media outlets have reported that North Korea now has the ability to miniaturize a nuclear warhead for placement on an intercontinental ballistic missile and the regime has threatened to "envelope Guam with fire". "We should also make clear that, if the USA and South Korea carry out military attacks to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political landscape on the Korean Peninsula, China will be determined to take actions to prevent them from doing so".

There are about 29,000 American troops permanently stationed in South Korea.
