North Korea warns US, Japan, South Korea against sanctions

The United States wants the U.N. Security Council to impose an oil embargo on North Korea, ban its exports of textiles and the hiring of North Korean laborers overseas, and to subject leader Kim Jong Un to an asset freeze and travel ban, according to a draft resolution seen by Reuters on Wednesday.

In contrast to U.S. preparations for a possible war with North Korea, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he is "sure that a large-scale conflict, especially with the use of weapons of mass destruction, will not happen".

He said Japan and South Korea are "in jeopardy" and need protecting.

Seoul has hardened its stance against Pyongyang after its torrent of arms tests, the latest on Sunday being a detonation of what North Korea said was a thermonuclear weapon built for missiles capable of reaching the United States mainland.

The North had test-launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) in July and another long-range projectile in late August.

After an intensive exchange of views in phone calls with Chinese president Xi Ping, French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday called on the global community to put more pressure on North Korea to bring the country back to the negotiating table.

Moon said Wednesday that the situation could get out of hand if North Korea's missile and nuclear tests aren't stopped.

So, obviously there has been a lot of players with injuries this year - Roger and Rafa last year had a few problems. Murray , the champion in NY in 2012, also pulled out of the Masters tournament in Cincinnati leading up to the U.S.

President Trump said Thursday that the North Korean regime has been "behaving badly" and reaffirmed the potential of the US using military force to deal with North Korea's provocations.

"Seoul also seeks to achieve North Korea's denuclearisation peacefully", Cho added. The first plenary session focused on "North Korea's Nuclear and Missile Threats and the Security of the Korean Peninsula", with experts exchanging views on the matter.

US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said last Monday that she meant to call for a vote on September 11 and then the United States circulated a draft resolution to the 15-member council on Wednesday.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has dismissed the Russian-Chinese roadmap, saying the United States is "done talking about North Korea".

Mr Putin expressed concern that cutting off oil supplies would hurt regular North Koreans, the official said.

THAAD, or Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, has come in for heavy criticism from residents concerned the Seongju area could be targeted by Pyongyang, while also raising suspicions about the possible health and environmental effects of the system's powerful radar, which already arrived in April.
