Officials have indicated that Seoul and Washington have closely collaborated on the North Korea policy direction since the launch of the Trump administration.

But Han said it was prepared for provocative acts.

"Whatever comes from USA politicians, if their words are created to overthrow the DPRK system and government, we will categorically reject them".

PYONGYANG, Korea, Democratic People's Republic Of - While tensions between his country and the United States appeared to be escalating rapidly, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made a high-profile appearance in Pyongyang on Thursday not to denounce Washington but to cut a ceremonial ribbon to mark the opening of a new high-rise district.

Tensions on the peninsula have soared this week amid speculation of a possible sixth nuclear test, following two previous year, as Pyongyang works to develop a long-range weapon that could strike the US.

"We certainly will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a U.S. pre-emptive strike", he said.

Ryol was further quoted, as saying, that countries like the United States should not expect Pyongyang to not to respond if a a pre-emptive strike was launched on it.

China opposes even limited USA military action against its ally and neighbor, which risks dragging both sides into a broader conflict and send refugees clambering toward its border.

Elliott plans legal action if Akzo rejects vote on chairman dismissal
Akzo rejected a pair of offers handed in by PPG, but a number of shareholders, including Elliott are in favor of the bid. It wasn't clear if Elliott's move would succeed even if the hedge fund could muster enough votes.

Han cited Trump's tweets as problematic, as well as the USA military's participation in exercises with South Korea and an aircraft carrier's move to the region.

"Trump is always making provocations with his aggressive words". Chinese officials worked for weeks behind-the-scenes to build ties with Trump and his family, before a February phone call between the two leaders in which he reaffirmed long-standing U.S. policy on Taiwan.

That parade will likely include North Korea's banned missiles, which President Kim Jong Un has tested several times since Mr. Trump took office.

The stick was accompanied by a carrot, with Trump noting "I explained to the President of China that a trade deal with the USA will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!"

North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests since 2006 and has been promising an unspecified "big event" will take place in the coming days.

The annual U.S. -South Korea military exercises have consistently infuriated the North, which views them as rehearsals for an invasion.

Han told AP that Pyongyang won't "keep its arms crossed" in the face of a USA pre-emptive strike. Most of the launches were considered failures, but experts say it is making clear progress toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile that could target the USA mainland. The Chinese fishermen who work the boats say they are often shocked by the apparent poverty of their North Korean counterparts who look "close to starvation". The warning came amid the diversion of the aircraft carrier group "USS Carl Vinson" to the Korean Peninsula and a week after Trump ordered the US Navy to fire a barrage of 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase as punishment for an alleged chemical attack in Idlib province.

"If a war starts, then the situation on the peninsula will completely get chaotic", said 66-year-old retiree Cai Zhengsun, who was strolling along the Yalu River, which marks the border between the two countries.
