Gorka denies dismissing Tillerson's role on North Korea

And U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis on Thursday appeared to downplay the possibility of armed conflict.

Bets on a statue of Trump being erected in North Korea this year can now be made on odds of 66/1, while the likelihood of Jong-un staying on as North Korean leader beyond 2031 has been put at 4/7. According to the source, the talks are being held between Ambassador Joseph Yun, the US special representative for North Korea policy, and Pak Song Il, a senior North Korean diplomat at the country's United Nations mission, using what's known as the "New York channel", which has been an avenue of communication between the USA and North Korea throughout the years.

GORKA: Absolutely, absolutely. No, I never said that, I said for reporters to force our chief diplomat, the unbelievable Rex Tillerson to give details of military options is nonsensical.

On Wednesday night, North Korea's military said President Donald Trump's warning of "fire and fury" if it threatens the U.S.is a "load of nonsense". His visit came the day after President Trump said North Korea would be met with "fire and fury" in the event of a nuclear attack.

"We respectfully but firmly urge you to do everything in your power to ensure that President Trump and other administration officials understand the importance of speaking and acting with the utmost caution and restraint on this delicate issue", the letter said. In response, North Korea announced it was developing plans for a missile strike against Guam.

According to two U.S. military sources which spoke to NBC, U.S. intelligence has identified at least two dozen targets in the DPRK, which they say consist of missile launch sites, testing grounds, storage facilities and support equipment. "But if the North were to act, the US would have to deploy far more to the peninsula and the region as quickly as possible".

"On the situation on the Korean peninsula obviously the Secretary General remains extremely concerned by the ongoing situation; he's troubled by the increase in confrontational rhetoric that we've seen", a spokesman for Guterres said.

And he points to another sign that the U.S.is not moving toward war with North Korea: There have been no efforts to evacuate the at least 150,000 US citizens living in South Korea. "The whole of the Security Council has come together behind that, and I think that we should see the President's public comments as one of the strands, one of the many strands of USA activity".
