He believes expanding his nuclear arsenal will secure the regime's rule and allow the North to defend itself from its neighbours and the threat of a USA invasion.

North Korea's state media reported that 4.7 million of its citizens have volunteered to join or re-enlist in the military since leader Kim threatened to "tame" President Donald Trump "with fire" last week.

Yesterday, China's commerce ministry said North Korean firms or joint ventures in China would be shut within 120 days of the latest UN Security Council sanctions passed on September12.

Overseas Chinese joint ventures with North Korean entities or individuals will also be closed, the ministry said in a statement on its website, without providing a timeframe.

The ministry had issued similar rules after a previous set of United Nations sanctions in August. As tensions between Pyongyang and the United States have escalated for years, the northern part has been developing its nuclear and missile program.

This photo, published by the state-owned Korean Central News Agency in mid-September, shows a test launch of North Korea's Hwasong-12 missile.

Park said President Moon told the meeting that Washington and Seoul agreed that pressure needed to be applied to North Korea, with the door to talks still open.

Gass also underlined that all the options regarding North Korea were now "extremely ugly", calling for return to talks, facilitated by China. Such war would destroy US-South Korean relations, and paralyse the global economy, RUSI said. The nature of the assets was not specified.

While the president could decide the USA cannot live with a nuclear-armed North Korea, he could also start a conflict to boost his popularity rating or to distract from the ongoing investigation into his campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation.

On Friday, the United Nations nuclear watchdog's chief says North Korea's sixth nuclear test showed the isolated country has made rapid progress on weapons development.

The US sent the bombers for a military maneuver over waters east of North Korea on Saturday, and later in the day, the Pentagon announced that its fighters from Guam and Okinawa in Japan had flown in worldwide airspace over the waters in "a clear message" that the US "has many military options to defeat any threat".

China opposes the deployment of THAAD because it believes its powerful radar could be used to look inside its territory. The commemorative event also featured a large number of weapons that are key components of South Korea's three-axis weapons system - including the Hyunmoo-2 ballistic missile and the M-SAM (mid-range surface-to-air missile) - which was another first for the event.
