N.Korean Envoy Warns Nuclear War Could Break out at 'Any Moment'

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday asserted that his diplomatic efforts to relax tensed relations with North Korea will continue "until the first bomb drops".

Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton calls "cavalier" threats to start war on the Korean peninsula "dangerous and short-sighted".

Mrs. Clinton urged the U.S.to get all parties to the negotiation table.

He said the USA must be prepared to defend itself and its allies.

Mrs Clinton told the World Knowledge Forum in the South Korean capital of Seoul: "There is no need for us to be bellicose and aggressive (over North Korea)".

"Picking fights with Kim Jong Un puts a smile on his face".

It's been almost a quarter century of the same diplomatic policies under three different presidential administrations with very few results other than passing off the North Korea nuclear problem to their successor. "The insults on Twitter have benefited North Korea, I don't think they've benefited the United States". His commitment to diplomacy came despite President Donald Trump's tweets several weeks ago that his chief envoy was "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom he derisively referred to as "Little Rocket Man".

In turn, North Korea called Trump "mentally deranged" and a "mad dog".

Regarding China's role in reining in North Korea, Ms Clinton said Beijing would be better off trying to "tighten and absolutely enforce sanctions" against North Korea. They regularly conduct joint exercises, though North Korea condemns them as an invasion rehearsal.
