After North Korea missile, Britain and Japan agree closer security ties

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversees the launch of a ballistic missile that overflew JapanMore

Nuclear-armed North Korea has warned Tokyo against "imminent self-destruction" for siding with Washington, as tensions soar after Pyongyang fired a missile over Japan. North Korea hates such displays of USA military might at close range and will likely respond with fury.

U.S. heavy bombers and stealth jet fighters took part in a joint live-fire drill in South Korea on Thursday, intended as a show of force against the North after its latest missile launch.

North Korea issued a new set of stamps Thursday to commemorate the July 2 test launch of its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) Hwasong-14. By publicly linking the launch to the drills, Kim is attempting reduce the possibility that Beijing supports more punitive measures against North Korea at the United Nations over the launch, Cha said.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has made it clear that he is ready to negotiate with North Korea, provided they are ready for nuclear disarmament.

US President Donald Trump has said that "talking is not the answer" in dealing with North Korea's military operations.

The F-35B in the hands of US Marine aviators has excellent stealth characteristics that mean North Korea wouldn't even know if the planes were overhead.

"As we leave the EU, we will work to quickly establish a new economic partnership between the United Kingdom and Japan based on the terms of the Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement", May will say according to advanced extracts of her speech.

The launch came as United States and South Korean forces were nearing the end of the 10-day annual Ulchi Freedom Guardian joint exercises, which Pyongyang regards as threatening.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has urged Washington not to use force against North Korea, as tensions surged after the latest missile test by Pyongyang.

"I agree with the president..."

The North apparently wanted to show off its resolve and ability to carry out the threat of striking waters near Guam in "enveloping fire", the ministry said.

"We're never out of diplomatic solutions".

The Pentagon chief declined to confirm reports that North Korea could be preparing a new nuclear test, which would be widely seen as another provocative and risky move by the Pyongyang regime.

Kim Jong Un said his nation has drawn a lesson "again that it should show action, not talk, to the US imprudently denying the (North's) initiative measure for easing the extreme tension" and stressed that it will continue to watch America's demeanor toward the North and decide its future actions accordingly. He says the North Korean threat toward Guam is more about winning greater freedom of military action than about deterring flyovers of US bombers or stopping the U.S.
