"The Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) is the sole organization in the US federal government whose mission is to detect and report technical data from foreign nuclear explosions".

The dollar index, which tracks the USA unit against a basket of six major rivals, fell 0.3 percent to 92.024.DXY, but it was still slightly higher on the week and was well above its more than 2-1/2 year trough of 91.011 marked on September 8.

Auslin: North Korea has been intent on getting a nuclear weapon for decades, so the basic premise that Pyongyang would bargain away its program was likely faulty.

The size of Saturday's tremor is smaller than the earthquakes registered as a result of all of North Korea's six nuclear tests.

On Friday, Donald Trump publicly branded the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a "rocket man" and said America "really had no choice" but to confront the authoritarian regime.

Two weeks ago the UN Security Council imposed its eighth set of sanctions on the North in an effort to rein it in following its sixth nuclear test, which Pyongyang said was a hydrogen bomb.

He was not given a squad number at the start of the season, was demoted to the U23s, and wasn't even given a locker at the club. I have really enjoyed the start to my Goodison career and I plan to be here for a long time.

Shin: China has always advocated diplomacy with North Korea, and I believe that China's cooperation is essential, but I would also caution against relying or counting on China too heavily. That's a question being asked after North Korea's foreign minister said his country may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean.

China announced Saturday it will ban exports of some petroleum products to North Korea, as well as imports of textiles from the isolated North in compliance with a United Nations (UN) Security Council resolution. "This mission is a demonstration of USA resolve and a clear message that the President has many military options".

There was no immediate reaction from China's Foreign Ministry. "This is an intolerable prospect that no other country in the worldwide community can abide". In two July flight tests, those missiles displayed the potential ability to reach deep into the continental United States.

How might the USA respond, given its treaty commitment to defend Japan?

Acton argues for negotiating a deal that would preclude such an escalation.

A nuclear launch by North Korea would come dangerously close to an act of war, said Lee Choon Geun, a missile expert from South Korea's Science and Technology Policy Institute. Cyberattacks can affect more than just bank accounts or identity theft; they can shut down power transmission, turn off water and prevent aircraft control towers from safely landing planes.

Hours later, Kim branded Trump as "deranged". Without strong domestic opposition or significant cleavages among the elite, the impact of broad economic sanctions against North Korea may resemble the bad human suffering caused by sanctions against Iraq - and it was in the end war, not sanctions, that brought that regime down.

As of Saturday afternoon, however, the Chinese had not modified their assessment, and the United States Geological Survey said in a statement, "We can not conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or human-made) of the event".

But Lewis said that's exactly what the United States and Japan would do. "It would violate longstanding global norms and would be a major challenge to the USA and Japan, in the latter case because it would overfly Japan's territory".

In an escalation of the war of words between the United States and North Korea, Trump sent a pre-dawn tweet Friday saying, "Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!"
