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.

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.
