President Trump spent at least some of his Sunday morning online, tweeting about a phone call with South Korea's president while also taking time to retweet posts from other Twitter users.

US President Donald Trump (L) shakes hands with South Korean President Moon Jae-in (R) next to Trump's wife Melania, prior to a concert at the Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, northern Germany. "Asked him how Rocket Man is doing".

He also said the North has nearly completed the building of its nuclear weapons force and called for all-state efforts to reach the goal and obtain a capacity for nuclear counterattack the USA can not cope with.

US options range from everything to accepting North Korea as a nuclear power to using military force in a bid to destroy its arsenal and even oust leader Kim Jong Un.

Experts believe Pyongyang's weapons programme has made rapid progress under leader Kim Jong-un, with previous sanctions having done little to deter it.

Haley said 120 countries had agreed to attend the meeting, at which Trump will propose a "massive reform package" that will make the United Nations.

Asked if that meant Trump would launch a military strike, McMaster said "he's been very clear about that, that all options are on the table".

Haley's comments come days after North Korea launched its second ballistic missile over Japanese airspace in a month.

On the issue of Trump's visit to the United Nations this week, McMaster also defended Trump's former criticism of the body as "not a friend" to America. She expected a Trump call for maximum pressure on North Korea.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley warned Sunday that "North Korea will be destroyed" if the United States is forced to defend itself from the increasingly aggressive rogue state.

As recognised by the whole world, we have made all these achievements despite the United Nations sanctions that have lasted for decades, the KCNA news agency quoted Mr Kim as saying. "The focal point of the contradiction is not China", Hua told a regular news briefing, using the acronym for the North's official name.

"If our diplomatic efforts fail, though, our military option will be the only one left", Tillerson said.

If diplomacy fails, she says Defense Secretary Jim Mattis "will take care of it".

The agreement came during a 30-minute conference call on the evening of September 15, after Pyongyang fired a ballistic missile over Japan in the morning.

"Honestly, I think the United States should be doing.much more than now, so that there's real effective worldwide cooperation on this issue", Ambassador Cui Tiankai told reporters at the Chinese Embassy in Washington on September 15.
