No-one ‘in their right minds’ wants the US to strike against North Korea, Boris Johnson has said – as he urged China to tackle the threat from Kim Jong-Un.

The Foreign Secretary warned there were ‘no good military options’ to resolve the crisis after Donald Trump threatened to ‘totally destroy’ the nuclear aspirant state.

Mr Johnson said Beijing must act to stop the US being ‘driven’ to take action by tightening oil sanctions against the North Korean regime.

The call came after Mr Trump ramped up the the warlike rhetoric, again dubbing Kim Jong-un ‘rocket man’ in his debut speech to the UN General Assembly.

Speaking after the regime signalled defiance with a series of nuclear and missile tests, the US president told the UN: ‘Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime.’

Speaking about the US, he added: ‘If it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.’

At the summit, Mr Johnson met with Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi and urged him to keep up the pressure on North Korea.
