War with North Korea 'closer every day'

The greatest immediate threat to the United States and to the world is the threat posed by the rogue regime in North Korea and his continued efforts to develop a long range nuclear capability' Mc Master added

A senior United States official told Fox News on Saturday that the North Korean ballistic missile fired last week did not survive the re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere, but broke up on re-entry.

The national security adviser said: "Kim was extremely unlikely to change his behavior without some significant new actions in the form of much more severe sanctions" and "complete enforcement of the sanctions that are in place", it reported.

"China has tremendous coercive economic power over North Korea", McMaster said.

The warning came after Pyongyang tested its first missile in two months.

The nuclear-armed North test-fired a long-range missile Wednesday that it said was capable of carrying a "super-large heavy warhead".

The claim was not proven and experts have cast doubt on the country's ability to master such technology. In turn, US Envoy to the UN Nikki Haley reiterated the call, urging the worldwide community to cut off ties with North Korea.

Ms Haley warned that "continued acts of aggression" were only serving to further destabilise the region.

The White House has repeatedly said that all options for reining in the North's nuclear and missile programs remain on the table, including military action.

Meanwhile, US media reported that North Korea's Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that US President Trump and his administration are "begging for nuclear war".

"We're asking China not to do us or anybody else a favor", he said.

He said that both he and Trump felt that a 100 per cent oil embargo would "be appropriate at this point".

"We know the main driver of its nuclear production is oil", she said.

Kim first made the threat in September in response to Trump's United Nations speech threatening to destroy the North and mocking him as "Little Rocket Man".

On Tuesday, North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile which flew for approximately 50 minutes, soared 2,800 miles into space and achieved the highest altitude and longest flight duration of any North Korean trial launch to date.

The Hwasong-15 missile, described as North Korea's "most powerful", was launched in darkness early on Wednesday.
