U.S. issues new targeted North Korean sanctions for Human rights abuse

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin

South Korean protesters stage a rally against the visit of U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in front of Defense Ministry in Seoul, South Korea, Saturday Oct. 28, 2017.

Mr Mattis noted during his visit to the Demilitarized Zone - which was described as tense but eerily quiet by the Associated Press - that their attempts at diplomacy are backed up by a strong United States military.

"Make no mistake - any attack on the United States, or our allies, will be defeated".

It has backed US -led United Nations sanctions on North Korea following a series of prohibited arms tests, some of which coincided with this year's political events deemed highly important for Xi.

"And any use of nuclear weapons will be met with a massive military response that is both effective and overwhelming".

"North Korea has accelerated the threat that it poses to its neighbors and the world through its illegal and unnecessary missile and nuclear weapons programs", he added, emphasizing that the United States "does not accept a nuclear North Korea".

Mattis was briefed by US and South Korean Joint Security Area Commanders Lt. Col. Matthew Farmer and Lt. Col. Kwon Young-hwan at the Observation Post Ouellette.

On Friday, Song called North Korea's actions a "reckless provocation", while Mattis labeled them "outlaw behavior".

He said Pyonyang's military will be overmatched by the allied force's combined defensive strength, reported the Yonhap News Agency.

The comments by Mattis come a month after the North carried out its sixth nuclear test which was the biggest it had tried to date.

In an interview with Fox Business Network, Trump said it would be easier to resolve the North Korea nuclear issue if the United States had a better relationship with Russian Federation.

Mattis said "this subject has not been broached to me by the Republic of Korea government", and emphasized that the goal of the global community is to denuclearize the peninsula.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks before awarding the Medal of Honor to Vietnam War Veteran, retired Army Capt. Gary Rose, during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House in Washington, U.S., October 23, 2017.
