7:02 am
highly provocative and a threat to all u.n. members while russia is pledging to implement the latest round of sanctions bottles being drawn by china and france and pushing for talks is the only way to resolve the crisis but u.s. president may have other ideas in his speech to troops he emphasized that military options are also available for mike hanna has this report from washington d.c. . the u.s. air force celebrates its seventieth anniversary and here to address the troops and their families president trump makes clear the air force may have a role to play in a christian ongoing north korea crisis after seeing your capabilities and commitment here today i am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming earlier speaking at the white house the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. emphasize that sanctions could still be an effective weapon if you look at the
7:03 am
resolutions that have passed in the last month or two of them they cut thirty percent of the oil they banned all the labors they banned ninety percent of the exports they banned joint ventures we've basically taken and in the words of north korea we have strangled their economic situation at this point that's going to take a little bit of time but it has already started to take effect the national security adviser agreed but stressed diplomacy was not the only option these sanctions are just now taking effect what's really important is rigorous enforcement of those sanctions so that we can really let the economic actions and diplomacy progress as best we can but i think we ought to make clear what's different about this approach is is that we're out of time right is best for him he said before you know we've been kicking the can down the road and we're out of road and so for those who have said and it been commenting about the lack of a military option there is a military option following yet another north korean missile launch despite several
7:04 am
rounds of sanctions the u.s. is clearly exploring other options and while the north korean leader may watch admiringly he could soon be facing u.s. action planned by the secretary of defense rather than the ambassador to the united nations mike hanna al-jazeera washington. well let's get more on all of this now with our correspondent andrew thomas is joining us live from seoul different voices from the united states at different times on this and different voices right now from the international community on how to deal with north korea and. a complete change from the south korean president after the latest test andrew. well the south korean president is being much more bullish about the need to stand up to north korea he used to be in opposition before he became president quite a talking about talks with north korea they are now impossible in the in the current circumstances he says they delight in the power expressed by the
7:05 am
photographs that north korea released of kim jong un personally overseeing that rocket launch is real provocation as much as the rocket launch itself in many ways to the u.s. south korea and the others who are obviously concerned about what the north is doing because while he is projecting this image of confidence of power of the light overseeing a successful test the international community is clearly split splits on how long to let sanctions take their course and see if they bring the north korean regime to their senses as the u.s. would see it and how long before they give up on that option and go for something else in other words a military option and of course the sanctions passed by the united nations on monday were nowhere near as strong as the u.s. or indeed south korea would have liked they would have liked a total oil embargo on north korea they didn't get it all they got was a cap so you saw nikki haley and mike hanna as peace they're talking about letting sanctions take their course but it's quite clear that certain thinkers within the u.s. in administration not least the president himself don't believe that even if those
7:06 am
sanctions are left to take their course they go far enough donald trump said earlier in the week that the sanctions don't go as far as what will ultimately need to happen what what does he mean by that so on the one hand you've got people in china and france and others saying they should let the sanctions take their course china said that they should do no more and no less than on the other hand you've got figures within the u.s. administration saying the time to let sanctions take their course is fast running out anyway the sanctions won't work and they're ovi asli figures within the u.s. administration pushing for action military action sooner andrea thank you very much for that f. analysis andrew thomas joining us live with all the very latest from seoul thank you. let's move on to other news now the british prime minister has raised the u.k.'s terror threat from severe to critical after an explosive device detonated on a london underground train on friday trees m a says she took a decision on advice from security officials twenty nine people were injured in
7:07 am
that incident which happened during a busy morning rush hour bonnie phillips has the latest from london. it happened on london's underground which is a twenty in the morning the height of the rush hour if this was a deliberate attack and that's what the police believe it was time to cause maximum casualties. this is what we believe caused the explosion just as the train came into parsons green station in a bucket still in flames moments later when a passenger on the train filmed it on their camera. but the damage to the surrounding carriage is slight perhaps someone intended this to be a much more serious attack injured and frightened people fled the station some had burns there was panic several people rushed to hospital. arriving in the thirty. people shell shocked and when asked what happened they talked about an explosion in one of the carriages and five yeah but the big three one of the
7:08 am
carriages we had a back and all of a sudden a fireball just came. and it was so hot and it just involves the whole. the fires just coming everybody screaming. and we run out and. we just we were right at the end of the cheap so we just we just jumped the fences and just ran. this is a leafy residential part of west london a long way from the city center so people who live around here are surprised and alarmed that something like this has happened and the police have sealed off a large area around parsons green tube station meaning an awful lot of disruption to people's lives we are treating the matter as a terrorist related incident and the metropolitan police counterterrorism command will take responsibility for that investigation the private a star held an emergency security beating the joint terrorism analysis center has

now decided to raise the national threat level from severe to critical this means that their assessment is that further attack may be imminent for this period military personnel will replace police officers on guard. sites which are not accessible to the public public will see more peace on the transport network and on our streets providing extra protection recent attacks in london and in manchester have put the british authorities on heightened alert. around the world the choo train attacks back in two thousand and five the so-called seven seven attacks in which more than fifty people died but the advice from politicians and the police is for people to go about their daily lives and across this city today that's what most londoners are doing to be phillips al jazeera parsons street in london. the united states is in the kurdish regional government to call off an independence
