The interview was broadcast as a letter by the US Defense Department emerged that said the only way to locate and secure all North Korea's nuclear weapons sites would be via a US ground invasion. In a speech before US troops based in Japan, Trump claimed that "no dictator, no regime and no nation, should underestimate, ever, American resolve". "They are not only threatening in words, but they are switching over into action to ignite another Korean War", they said, referring to USA rhetoric.

The Pentagon made that assertion in a letter to lawmakers who wanted to know about the logistics and human cost of any conflict with North Korea. "Invading North Korea could result in a catastrophic loss of lives for USA troops and US civilians in South Korea", the statement said.

He also pointed out that Seoul, the South's capital with a population of 25 million, is just 35 miles from the demilitarized zone. It was not pleasant for them, was it?' said Trump, who wore a leather bomber jacket as he addressed the troops.

The admission by North Korea that the sanctions are hurting comes after the United Nations security council imposed a new round of them in early September following North Korea's sixth underground nuclear test.

"North Korean officers are trained to press their button without any further instructions from the general command if anything happens on their side", Thae told the House Foreign Affairs Committee, referring to a US bombing or military strike.

His administration also planned to take a different approach to dealing with the issue after years of what he termed "total weakness", although he did not give any details.

In a statement with more than a dozen other military veterans turned congressmen, Mr Lieu, a Democrat, said the assessment was "deeply disturbing" and warned that a conflict "could result in hundreds of thousands, or even millions of deaths in just the first few days of fighting".

South Korea and China have urged the United States to help dial down tensions with the North after Pyongyang accused President Donald Trump of declaring war.

The email went to "several members of the campaign's foreign policy team", according to the documents. He said one person was a "senior person", but he would not reveal the person's identity.

A Congressional Research Service report published last week said that conservative estimates anticipate that in the first hours of a conflict, North Korean artillery situated along the frontier could cause tens of thousands of casualties in South Korea, where at least 100,000 and possibly as many as 500,000 Americans live - including almost 30,000 USA troops.

South Korea plans to capitalize on the country's hosting of the 2018 Winter Olympics to secure worldwide support and the momentum to improve relations with North Korea and denuclearize the country, she added.

China's fuel exports to North Korea fell in August, along with iron ore imports from the isolated nation, as trade slowed after the latest UN sanctions, but coal shipments resumed after a five-month hiatus.
