The Latest Trump praises Xi for new UN sanctions

The threat to attack Guam, he says, is a test of President Trump's "larger strategy".

'The tragedy of war is well-enough known it doesn't need another characterization beyond the fact that it would be catastrophic'.

"Sanctions on the regime will continue to tighten and the USA and worldwide community must work together to strategically apply pressure on North Korea at every point necessary to neutralize this threat", he continued.

On Thursday, North Korean state media detailed a plan to launch four intermediate-range missiles toward the territory, suggesting that it would splash the Hwasong-12 missiles into the sea less than 25 miles Guam's coast.

Deviating from the tone of President Trump, who said the USA would unleash "fire and fury" upon North Korea, Mattis stressed that the route forward would be diplomatic, and he repeated the importance of the unanimous 15-1 United Nations Security Council vote to impose economic sanctions on North Korea.

Palestinian terrorist wounds Arab in Jerusalem attack
A female Palestinian terrorist stabbed and wounded another Arab in a stabbing attack near Jerusalem's Old City on Saturday. However, Israel Police investigators are confident in their findings and the terrorist's identity.

President Donald Trump says he's planning to add billions of dollars to the nation's anti-missile programs.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters on Wednesday that Americans had "nothing to fear" from Trump's remarks, and that they had instead been an attempt to use language that Kim Jong Un "would understand".

Meanwhile, France is urging all sides "to act responsibly and to de-escalate" tensions over North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Gorka said that the idea that the Secretary of State should "discuss military matters is simply nonsensical", and also appeared to suggest that the USA was considering military options against North Korea.

Pyongyang has been louder in its complaints against a new and tough round of sanctions imposed by the United Nations, with strong U.S. backing, and Washington's use of Guam as a staging ground for its stealth bombers, which could be used to attack North Korea and are a particularly sore point with the ruling regime in Pyongyang.

TN CM seeks exemption from NEET for state students
The state government had an opportunity to insist on Neet exemption and Cauvery Management Board in the Presidential elections. The state demanding for the exception to help the rural students in getting admissions.

He believes the best way to handle the current situation is diplomacy.

"The prime minister says he discussed the threat with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence overnight".

"If North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack, of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous", Trump said.

On Thursday, U.S. and Japanese troops began an 18-day live fire exercise on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, which was to include rocket artillery drills and involve 3,500 troops.

Speaking to journalists at his New Jersey golf club, the President said that he didn't think his comments had been "tough enough". Moon is likely to highlight his policy on North Korea on the holiday, the only one the two Koreas share.
