North Korea says it needs to defend itself against what it sees as U.S. aggression.

One takeaway from these exchanges is that the United States is prepared to offer these key allies advanced weaponry, beyond what it already sells them under the Pentagon's foreign military sales program. "We had a very, very frank and very strong phone call", Trump told reporters as he left the White House on a trip to North Dakota. And at least until Wednesday, Trump had increasingly emphasized military responses.

The expert, who now works as a professor of Korean Unification, Diplomacy and Security at Seoul's Korea University, also warned that North Korea's military threat would continue unless Kim was "eliminated". Nor have those deals stopped the USA from pursuing its other interests both commercially and geopolitically.

South Korea and the United States are technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

But tensions in China-US ties have increased since Trump took office, with the US president having authorized an investigation into China's alleged theft of intellectual property, and suggesting trade relations would be linked to Beijing's help on North Korea.

"We hardly ever talk politics and that's the good thing about that", the 56-year-old said.

The prospect of a USA nuclear strike and subsequent chaos and a refugee exodus is even more scary than a democratic country on Russia's doorstep, said another Korea scholar, Alexander Zhebin. A total of 1,004 South Koreans over the age of 19 were polled by telephone, it said.

On Sunday, it conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, claiming it successfully detonated an H-bomb that can be mounted on a long-range missile.

Finally, Trump's warning, that "the United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea", would be impossible to implement, especially with China, whose trade with the U.S. runs into the hundreds of billions of dollars. Japan has begun offering advice to its citizens on what to do in the event a missile lands near them - essentially try to get underground - and USA firms are marketing missile shelters.

"It's just amusing the fact that me saying something like that, and people say, 'oh my God, Dennis Rodman protecting the marshal of North Korea". The United States wants the U.N. Security Council to impose an oil embargo on North Korea, ban its exports of textiles and the hiring of North Korean laborers overseas, and to subject leader Kim Jong Un to an asset freeze and travel ban, according to a draft resolution seen by Reuters on Wednesday.

Roman Schweizer, defense industry analyst at Cowen Research, predicts Japan will seek more US arms. "We'll see what happens".

China said it would support further United Nations measures against Pyongyang in response to North Korea's sixth nuclear test. But China, too, is looking nervously at the Korean Peninsula, and this week it tested antimissile systems of its own.

Japan also is considering acquiring the THAAD (terminal high-altitude area defense) missile system, as well as advanced tactical fighters and helicopters.

North Korea's missile test launches are usually held around historically significant dates.

"We too, are against North Korea developing its nuclear capabilities and condemn it, but it is worrying cutting the oil pipeline will harm the regular people, like in hospitals", Putin said.

North Korea is about to celebrate its 69th anniversary as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), and its southern neighbours are on high alert for a possible missile test.
