Days earlier, Trump used his favorite medium to castigate North Korea, China and the USA for allowing the situation to get so bad.

That's the claim of Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson.

"Japan has put in some ideas", the USA and China "are seriously looking into this, and I hope that we can get it done in days", he said.

There is no link between North Korea's nuclear program and China-U.S. trade, a senior Chinese official said Monday, after U.S. President Donald Trump said China had done nothing for the United States on North Korea. "[Trump] has told me that", Graham said.

President Trump denounced the launch: "Threatening the world, these weapons and tests further isolate North Korea, weaken its economy and deprive its people", he said in a written statement. "O'Shaughnessy, U.S. #Pacific Air Forces Commander Gen. Terrence J' O'Shaughnessy, U.S. Pacific Air Forces Commander, stated", the U.S and our allies are ready to use lethal, rapid and overwhelming force if needed against North Korea".

Lauer pressed Graham on the military option in North Korea, questioning whether it would be worth the risk of civilian lives and diplomatic relationships.

Lindsey Graham said military action against North Korea is possible under President Donald Trump.

"The specifics of our assessment are classified for reasons I hope you understand", Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis told a news briefing, acknowledging only that the missile could fly at least 5500km, the minimum range for what the Pentagon classifies as an ICBM.

"They've kicked the can down the road for 20 years". North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un boasted of his country's ability to strike any target in the U.S. following last Friday's ICBM test.

He said if Washington and Pyongyang refuse to reduce tensions and hold new talks as called for in Security Council resolutions "then no matter how capable China is, China's efforts will not yield practical results-because it depends on the two principal parties". Japan and the United States would take steps towards concrete action, he said, but did not give details.

Just days after North Korea conducted an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) test, the United States military said it has detected "highly unusual and unprecedented levels" of submarine activity, CNN reported on Tuesday (Aug 1) citing a defence official. Additionally, THAAD has no capability against the missiles North Korea demonstrated on July 4 and July 28, both of which were intercontinental-range ballistic missiles.

He said other options were "not particularly attractive".
