Russian Federation calls to avoid steps that may worsen situation around North Korea

After lamenting that the North Korean government has been making "fools of USA negotiators for 25 years", the president wrote on Saturday, "Sorry, but only one thing will work!".

"There is one thing the US Army can do and that is you have got to be ready to ensure that we have military options that our President can employ if needed", Mattis said in a speech at an annual US Army conference.

While the implication is clearly meant to be something along the lines of a calamitous nuclear war, Trump appeared much more interested in elaborating on what in his opinion hasn't worked than offering any specifics on what the "one thing" is.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said over the weekend that the country's nuclear arsenal is a "powerful deterrent" to the United States.

Earlier, he had indicated the possibility of military action against Pyongyang, remarking unprompted at a dinner with U.S. military leaders last week that the setting was the "calm before the storm", another remark which he has not shed light on. "You'll find out", is all Trump seemed to be able to say when he was asked about the five ominous-sounding words.

Tillerson says that the State Department has "a couple of direct channels to Pyongyang" for humanitarian purposes and is hoping for a "peaceful resolution"; Trump tweets "Save your energy Rex, we'll do what has to be done!" As of press time, North Korea has not responded to Trump's tweet, thought they have done so in the past. "They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the west coast of the United States", Anton Morozov, a lawmaker in Russia's lower house said on Friday.

"North Korea should have been handled 25 years ago or 10 years ago". He noted that North Korea and the U.S. government have open lines of communication.
