North Korea problem cannot be solved without Russia China – German FM

South Korea on Thursday made a decision to resume humanitarian aid to North Korea to help children and pregnant women, but didn't determine when to provide the $8 million worth of assistance amid tensions created by Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests.

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Sunday the UN Security Council had run out of options on containing North Korea's nuclear program and that the United States might have to turn the matter over to the Pentagon.

Despite the military drills and tough rhetoric, US President Donald Trump has continued to work through diplomatic channels.

She confirmed President Donald Trump's threats of "fire and fury" towards North Korea was no bluff, days before he is due to speak to the UN General Assembly in NY on Tuesday.

This hour, we hear from experts on how the USA and its allies should handle this delicate situation.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in suggested to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on 15 September that they should both refrain from overreacting to North Korean provocations to avoid any accidental conflict.

Moon cautioned that North Korean nuclear issues need to be "managed stably" to prevent a spike in tensions and military clashes - a prospect that has overshadowed this year's gathering of world leaders.

North Korea has called increased United Nations sanctions a "hostile act", committed with the intention to "physically exterminate" its citizens.

China accounts for about 90 percent of North Korea's trade.

She said that the U.S. might hand control of dealing with Pyongyang to the military, adding North Korea would be "destroyed" if it did not halt its nuclear and missile programs.

The US flew four F-35B stealth fighter jets and two B-1B bombers over the Korean peninsula today in a blunt show of force.

China accounts for about 90 per cent of North Korea's trade and sends largely free crude oil shipments to the North. Beijing has been increasingly frustrated with North Korea's nuclear drive, but it still doesn't want the North to collapse and cause a wave of refugees to cross the border into China and American troops to move into North Korea.

A foreign ministry spokesman for the North called the sanctions "the most vicious, unethical and inhumane act of hostility", intended "to physically exterminate the people of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)". "But actually, these kinds of actions didn't help solving the problem but further complicate the situation, which do no good to the resolution of the peninsular issue". NK News director of intelligence John Grisafi said.
