N Korea brands Trump 'warmonger' as his Asia tour moves to Hanoi

N Korea brands Trump 'warmonger' as his Asia tour moves to Hanoi

Trump has urged the region to take a united front against the threat posed by isolated North Korea, which has sparked global alarm with its nuclear and missile tests in recent months.

Trump pressed China to do more to rein in North Korea and said bilateral trade had been unfair to the United States, but lauded Xi's pledge that China would be more open to foreign firms.

South Korea and the United States on Saturday kicked off a joint naval exercise in the Sea of Japan involving three US aircraft carriers amid heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The three flattops - USS Ronald Reagan, USS Nimitz and USS Theodore Roosevelt - entered the South's military operation zone, called the Korea Theater of Operations (KTO), for the four-day maneuvers slated to end Tuesday.

High lead levels found in fidget spinners
Cook-Schulz said it released the report on the lead content of these two spinners early because of public safety concerns. Many light-up fidget spinners also contain lithium batteries that can cause severe internal burns if swallowed.

During Saturday's summit, Moon and Xi also agreed to quickly normalize bilateral exchanges in all sectors, Yoon added, repeating what was said in the agreement announced last month when the two countries agreed to end a year-long standoff over the deployment of a US anti-missile system.

Xi told Moon that he encouraged South Korea to resume dialogue with North Korea and re-engage with them for reconciliation and de-nuclearization, state news agency Xinhua reported.

USA officials have already warned that North Korea are continuing to develop their missiles, rocket fuels and engines as well as targeting and guidance systems.

"The future of this region and its lovely people must not be held hostage to a dictator's twisted fantasies of violent conquest and nuclear blackmail", he said during a speech in Vietnam to the annual Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.

Sakho, Mane star as Senegal book World Cup berth
The Senegalese Teranga Lions doubled their lead after 38 minutes against the run of play with another goal involving Sakho and Mane.

It's the first time since a 2007 exercise near Guam that three U.S. carrier strike groups are operating together in the Western Pacific, according to the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet.

The US has been sending its strategic assets, also including long-range bombers, to the region more frequently for patrols or drills amid accelerating North Korean efforts to expand its nuclear weapons program.

In recent months, North Korea has tested intercontinental ballistic missiles that could reach the USA mainland with further development and has conducted its most powerful nuclear test.

"The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger", Trump said about North Korea during an address at South Korea's National Assembly in Seoul.
