Trump discusses North Korea with France's Macron

President Donald Trump's "war of words" with North Korea is not the right way to go about addressing the nuclear threat from Pyongyang, former ambassador Nancy Soderberg told CNBC on Friday.

A White House statement said Trump and President Emmanuel Macron had discussed "the increasingly risky situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour".

"The United States, with their allies, are ready to implement a full range of measures diplomatic, economic and military" to put an end to the nuclear threat of north korea, explained the White House in a press release.

Macron also spoke by phone with US President Donald Trump with the aim of "getting North Korea to conform to its worldwide obligations", his Elysee office said.

Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump had claimed that North Korea would "fire and anger" of the United States if ever the threats of Pyongyang continued.

Moreover, Mueller also sued Swift's mother, Andrea Swift, and her radio handler, Frank Bell , on the same allegations. The former disc-jockey filed the complaint last Wednesday and sought a $ 3 million as a rightful compensation.

The comments came after Trump unleashed a slew of fresh threats against North Korea on Friday, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded".

"Force has always been an option, but it has always been the last option, not the first", Soderberg said. North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) later reported that Pyongyang was "carefully examining" plans for a missile strike on the Andersen Air Force Base located on the US Pacific territory of Guam.

Tensions around the Korean Peninsula started to rise in light of the implementation of the North Korean missile program.

"I think it's only fair to point out he inherited this crisis", Mr. Gore told Newsweek.

"It is clearly time for all parties to focus on ways to reduce tensions", she said Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for the secretary-general of the united Nations, Antonio Guterres. In July, Pyongyang conducted two ballistic missile tests which provoked a sharp response from the United States, Japan and South Korea.
