China has been playing very positive role on North Korea: White House

Concerns continue to grow that North Korea could conduct another nuclear test, in the wake of recent ballistic missile tests.

Administration officials declined to say whether Trump planned to formally announce new policies toward Afghanistan, North Korea or Syria before Saturday, when he hits his 100-day mark.

Press reports on Tuesday said a US guided-missile submarine has arrived in South Korea, as diplomats from the United States, Japan and South Korea met in Tokyo Tuesday to discuss the growing threat from the north.

The classified briefing heard that the Trump administration is seeking a peaceful denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

"We remain open to negotiations towards that goal".

China says the deployment of Thaad will destabilise security and there have been protests in South Korea itself, where three people were injured in clashes with police as the system was being delivered to a former golf course on Wednesday.

Other Senate leadership staffers signalled that most, if not all, senators in both parties are expected to attend the White House briefing, The Washington Post reported.

Trump's argument appears to be that TV networks have limited time to fill, so if they're focusing on a story, it's important.

Trump administration officials, however, downplayed any suggestion that holding the meeting on the White House campus was meant to convey any particular message.

Trump has said that Xi is applying pressure on North Korea to not engage in further provocations.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that although the event will take place at the White House, it is a Senate briefing and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will be convening it.

Harris said the carrier was in the Philippine Sea, within two hours' striking distance of North Korea if need be.

The moves to set up THAAD within this year have angered not only North Korea, but also China, the country that the Trump administration hopes to work with to rid the North of nuclear weapons. "However, we remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies", it said.

A senior administration official told reporters that the White House is looking at broad range of options.

The program is meant to support poor, often minority communities with severe environmental challenges. In attendance were residents, NAACP national President Cornell Williams Brooks and community members.

North Korean government property in America was frozen and USA exports to, or investment in, North Korea was banned.

Spicer also said that while he "can't guarantee" a government shutdown will be avoided, he doesn't think it's going to happen.

The meeting came the same day the USA test fired a long-range nuclear missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The White House, meanwhile, insisted that the North Korean issue could be resolved through diplomatic efforts.

"If you just look at the images, right, of the big parade there recently and look at the complexity of that equipment, those components, even the tires, right, are not made in North Korea". The White House did not comment on the briefing, but House aides were reportedly organizing a similar one for the House of Representatives, if it still exists by the time they get it together.

During a White House lunch with ambassadors of United Nations Security Council member states on Monday, the US president called unacceptable the "status quo in North Korea". Asked during a reception for conservative media outlets about Kim Jong-Un's military capacity, Trump diminished the North Korean leader.
