'North and South Korea could host World Cup'

US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Thomas Shannon met the Japanese National Security Advisor, Shotaro Yachi, after which he said that North Korea's nuclear and missile tests are a global threat, reports Efe news. "It would be a war like nothing we have seen since 1953 and we would have to deal with it with whatever level of force was necessary ..."

Last week, a North Korean state-run newspaper urged the USA not to go through with the exercise and threatened nuclear war. Ahn said it would draw, at the very least, much more severe sanctions, even from its main economic supporter China.

The elevated North Korean World War Three threats against the United States have come in response to the US move last week which sent two American aircraft carriers to the Korean peninsula, where along with other USA warships they carried out the first joint military exercises in the region with the Japan Self Defense Force in about two decades.

The U.S. last week tested a defense system that it said successfully intercepted and destroyed a mock intercontinental ballistic missile.

Ten of the photos were of USA missile launchers and a radar system installed in the southeastern town of Seongju earlier this year, while the rest were mostly of residential areas, agricultural fields and other less-sensitive areas in South Korea, the official said.

"We believe considering the threat from North Korea, a full Thaad battery is the best addition to the defense of (South Korea)", Commander Gary Ross said.

In what will likely become another source of animosity, Moon's government plans to let two out of four North Korean fishermen recently rescued at sea resettle in South Korea in accordance with their wishes.

Infantino congratulated the President on the country's successful hosting of the FIFA U-20 World Cup, and reportedly offered assurances that FIFA would always be open to the possibility of events that could use football to improve inter-Korean relations.

"The global community should be prepared to more quickly respond to the advancing pace of North Korea's missile tests by preparing a menu of tightening multilateral sanctions options that have been informally agreed to in advance", he said.

Trump's tweet was a reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's announcement earlier this year that the country was in the final stages of developing an ICBM capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. North Korea called the system a provocation aimed at bolstering USA military hegemony in the region.
