Trump angers Koreans by saying Korea 'used to be part of China' following history lesson from Xi

China may be getting fed up with continued nuclear bluster from long-time ally North Korea and tilting toward the United States. In the 1990s, it removed spent fuel rods from its nuclear reactor, a possible prelude for use in weapons, before former US President Jimmy Carter brokered negotiations that led to aid and security assurances.

By using China's cooperation, Trump has moved away from US's past policies which didn't barter economic or foreign policies with China in exchange for support on North Korea.

That kind of rhetoric has unnerved allies in Japan and South Korea, who would be at the sharp end of any North Korean response.

Koh Yu-hwan, a North Korea expert at Seoul's Dongguk University, said that the way USA officials describe "maximum pressure and engagement" suggests that the Trump administration wants to ease Chinese fears about a collapse in North Korea, something that prevented Beijing from aggressively pressuring the North in the past. A number of municipalities are testing community alarm systems and planning evacuation drills as concerns run high around US military bases.

In the event of a contingency on the Korean Peninsula, the Self-Defense Forces are expected to provide logistical support to the US military.

Japan is drawing up emergency responses in case of a North Korea missile strike.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis recently addressed the escalating circumstance with North Korea, saying the regime's actions were moving in a "very reckless manner". The North Korean KN-08 missile, mentioned a year ago by Commander of U.S. Northern Command Adm. William Gortney, can reach ranges greater than 3,400 miles, according to a recent report from the Associated Press. Otherwise it risks its alliance with South Korea and Japan.

Instead, North Korea tested a missile Sunday, which was said to have failed, provoking more calls for the country to cease its hostile acts.

A US Navy Carrier Strike Group is now heading toward waters near North Korea shores as the regime continues ballistic missile tests while threatening a nuclear strike against the US.

The language on North Korea's nuclear program was more straightforward. Tokyo is increasingly concerned about this possibility.
