Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have engaged in the sort of rhetorical rumble that wouldn't sound out of place in the world of professional wrestling. But these two nuclear-armed national leaders might be more similar than most people realize.
The UN Security Council on Monday opened an emergency meeting to agree to a response to North Korea's sixth and most powerful nuclear test as calls mounted for a new raft of tough sanctions to be imposed on Pyongyang.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said Tuesday he would hold off on a planned missile strike near Guam, but warned the highly provocative move would go ahead in the event of further "reckless actions" by Washington.
China will halt iron, iron ore and seafood imports from North Korea starting Tuesday, following through on new UN sanctions after US pressure for Beijing to strongarm Pyongyang over its ally's nuclear program.
