USA warns North Korea threats 'will be met with massive military response'

"We have many military options".

"Does North Korea threaten the existence of the United States or any of our allies right now?"

It was Pyongyang's sixth, and the most powerful nuclear test, which was set to raise tension in the region. But some also say the test doesn't mean North Korea is any more of an immediate threat to the United States or its allies.

"We are going to work with our allies, we'll work with China, but people need to cut off North Korea economically". We really don't see an easy military solution - the distance between North Korea and Seoul is very small.

His words echo those of President Trump, who took to Twitter following Pyongyang's announcement to state that appeasement would not work with North Korea.

South Korea's presidential office also said Eui-yong spoke with U.S. counterpart H.R. McMaster for 20 minutes in an emergency phone call about an hour after the detonation.

Earlier on Sunday Trump floated the idea of cutting off trade with China, North Korea's treaty ally and main trading partner, in response to North Korea's greatly increased provocations.

Mattis said Washington was not looking for the "total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea".

Atomic weapons like those previously tested by North Korea rely on nuclear fission to release energy - basically splitting atoms.

"What the Chinese always say is there's a kind of equivalence between the South Korean/US exercises and nuclear exercises carried out by North Korea".

The global community roundly condemned the Kim regime's latest weapons test.

"North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success".

The tough talk comes as the Trump administration searches for a response to the escalating crisis.

"A successful test means they can build a weapon, not that they have any ready for immediate use", said Carl Schuster, a former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center.

'But as I said, we have many options to do so, ' he added.

"I will submit new sanctions for his strong consideration", Mnuchin said on "Fox News Sunday" after North Korea apparently detonated a hydrogen bomb.
