Trump, while talking to reporters commented on Jong that he was "acting very, very badly".

North Korea has conducted a series of missile launches this month, including four on March 6, KCNA reported.

The program won an NCAA Tournament game for the first time since advancing to the Elite Eight and losing to Stanford in 1998. Jackson took over from there, scoring 8 of the next 10 points for the Jayhawks as they pushed their lead back to 64-57.

Earlier in February North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile, which is believed to have splashed down into the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan.

Speaking in South Korea on Friday, Tillerson said that military action against the secretive state was an 'option'.

North Korea's latest rocket-engine test showed "meaningful" progress, South Korea said on Monday, while an analyst said it was a unsafe step towards the North's goal of developing a rocket that could hit the United States. Beijing fears Kim's fall would send waves of refugees into northeastern China and see South Korean and American forces taking up positions along its border. The country's official media service, Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), said the new high-thrust engine will help North Korea attain a world-class satellite- launching program.

It comes after North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests and a series of missile launches, in defiance of United Nations sanctions. Xi said that both he and Trump expect a new stage of constructive development in bilateral relations.
