Finally, on Thursday the President will meet with the leaders of Turkey, Afghanistan, and Ukraine, before South Korea and Japan, with which he will discuss the world's "most urgent and unsafe security problem", North Korea.

"After seeing your capabilities and commitment here today, I am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming", Trump said in his address to air force personnel and families on the 70th anniversary of the US Air Force.

And while the first two may be familiar in US post-war diplomacy, the third is a loaded term in global relations, hinting at Trump's "America First" agenda. "We will defend our people, our nations, and our civilization, from all who dare to threaten our way of life". "We can never tolerate that North Korea trampled on the worldwide community's strong, united resolve towards peace that has been shown in UN resolutions and went ahead again with this outrageous act", he said on Friday.

Haley and Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, outlined the president's goals for next week's United Nations summit. "That takes us a little while, as we amass everything and analyse it", Mattis said.

The three worldwide goals Trump will emphasize on the visit are "peace", "prosperity" and "sovereignty", McMaster said. "It's not what we'd prefer to do". "The members of the Security Council strongly condemned these launches, condemned further North Korea for its outrageous actions, and demanded that North Korea immediately cease all such actions", the Security Council said in a statement after an emergency meeting. "What we're seeing is they continue to be provocative and reckless".

Appearing with McMaster was U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who grimly declared, "There's not a whole lot the Security Council is going to be able to do from here".

"In case North Korea undertakes provocations against us or our ally, we have the power to destroy them beyond recovery", added Moon, once seen as a liberal dove.

"Forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about", he said. Both of North Korea's patron nations insist that Pyongyang has legitimate grievances that should be settled through negotiations with the US and South Korea.

North Korea has been the most perplexing foreign policy problem facing the Trump administration in its first year in office, with their now repeated missile tests and one nuclear test putting pressure on the President to have a plan should tensions escalate. That plan seeks to set the stage for a resumption of talks after Pyongyang suspends its nuclear and ballistic missile activity and the USA and South Korea suspend their joint military exercises.

McMaster emphasized that it's the responsibility of all nations to enforce U.N. sanctions on North Korea and address the problem.

The worry is less about a full-blown attack from the North on its neighbours (an unlikely possibility given that Kim is not suicidal) and more the prospect of low-level provocations - for example, the shelling by the North of contested border territories near the Northern Limit Line between North and South Korea, or use of cyber attacks to disrupt USA and allied command and control operations.
