'Totally' possible for USA to address North Korea threat alone - FT


President Donald Trump said the USA can "totally" address North Korea's nuclear threat unilaterally if China doesn't cooperate to put pressure on that nation, according to the Financial Times. Still, he said the United States could "totally" handle the situation in North Korea without China's help.

The South Korean Unification Ministry said on Friday it expects the national women's soccer team's trip to North Korea for an global competition to proceed in a "calm and orderly manner".

(Stand-up) "South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff says the regime could conduct a nuclear test at any given moment, adding that it is keeping close tabs on North Korea for any signs of unusual activity".

Trump said trade was the incentive for China to work with the United States.

The comments, in an interview published on Sunday by the Financial Times, appeared created to pressure Chinese President Xi Jinping ahead of his visit to Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida this week.

Pyeongchang 2018 President Lee Hee-beom claimed in February that North Korea have a right and a responsibility to compete at next year's Winter Olympics.

Derrick Rose to have knee surgery, miss rest of season
Sitting down at the table, I think we'll have to talk about. "The explosiveness that you saw years ago, you saw (this year)". The former NBA MVP also had surgeries to fix the meniscus in his right knee during the '13-14 season and again in '15.

'Bad Luck' Mutations Linked to Higher Cancer Risk in New Study
They reasoned that the more cells divide, the higher the potential for so-called copying mistakes in the DNA of cells in an organ. In other cancers including prostate, brain or bone, more than 95 percent of the mutations are due to random copying errors.

Lexi Thompson leads LPGA major after long day
That dream took a bit of a hit when Wie bogeyed the par-5 ninth, then played the back nine with nine pars and pain in her hip. Pettersen nabbed her sixth birdie of the round at the 18th, capping a 68 for sole possession of second place on 205.

Such encounters are a break from tensions that have dominated bilateral ties since the 1950-53 Korean War, with Seoul recently warning of a looming sixth North Korean nuclear test.

North Korea's foreign ministry issued another angry diatribe against the exercises Thursday, saying that it would "mount a resolute preemptive attack" if it thought the United States was about to strike it.

In a wide-ranging interview with four news agencies, Haley also talked about the new US priorities in Syria and American efforts "to create balance" at the United Nations on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

She said she expects them to discuss "how that action can come about, and discuss what level of action president Trump thinks it should be".

"They are trying to get a working arsenal, so the more they test, the more they learn", said Jon Wolfsthal, a senior nonproliferation adviser in the Obama administration who is now at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. When pressed about whether he could do it one-on-one without China's help, the president said, "I don't have to say any more".

"It's likely that they're trying to make a device small enough to achieve their goal of putting a nuclear warhead on a long-range missile", Wolfsthal said.
