Corbyn: UK should stay out of any military action against North Korea

Trump's toothless threats endanger us all

North Korea dominated the conversation between the two leaders, according to a readout of the call.

"You have this guy [Trump] making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", Ellison said.

Trump raised alarm around the world - and particularly in Asia - by warning that North Korea would face "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it were to keep threatening the US.

"No, I don't think so".

"It's somewhat reminiscent to me of the history of World War I and how the world kind of blundered into that", Clapper said in an interview with CNN.

Trump 'military' talk on Venezuela unnerves LatAm
Vice President Mike Pence heads to four Latin American countries, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Panama in the next few days. And the regime's use of excessive force and mass detentions had repulsed all but its staunchest allies in the region.

Clapper said the USA and North Korea could "blunder" into global military conflict as they exchange escalating hostilities.

A White House statement said Trump and President Emmanuel Macron had discussed "the increasingly risky situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour".

United States President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron have discussed North Korean issues and agreed to work to denuclearize North Korea.

The statement added that Trump had "reassured" Guam Governor Eddie Calvo that the U.S. military would "ensure the safety and security of the people of Guam, along with the rest of America".

China, because of this view, will only do a few things to try and talk North Korea into coming around to a more reasonable posture. China is the North's biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can't compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs.
