However, Donald Trump's ill-considered riposte on Twitter-'I too have a nuclear button, but it is a much bigger and more powerful one than his, and my button works'-only heightened global concerns over his mindset on using nuclear weapons. "I'm not saying I have or haven't", he said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal published Thursday. "A lot of good energy", Trump said at the news conference.

Forward-deployed USA nukes would also ease Japanese concerns, both about North Korea and about China, and decrease the likelihood of Tokyo going down the very short path to its own nuclear weapons. You give me 30.

The expert said the diplomats noted that new elements appearing in South Korea-U.S. joint drills over the past few months have elicited growing concern that "zero hour" is not too far away, referring particularly to the air exercise Vigilant Ace, which involved 230 aircraft, including a large number of varied types of stealth aircraft. In the interview with the Journal, he said the combative tweets are part of a broader strategy, and that he is a "very flexible person".

Tunneling activities at North Korea's main nuclear test site have been stepped up, a USA -based think tank said Thursday, even as the inter-Korean peace talks resumed over the past week.
