US Defence Secretary Mattis, who is on a two-day visit to India to strengthen military ties, said a United Nations resolution had increased pressure on the hermit nation.

He also said diplomatic efforts to tackle the crisis are continuing, but added the US would be able to tackle any attacks from Kim Jong-un.

Mr Mattis said: “We continue to maintain the diplomatically led efforts in the United Nations.

“You have seen unanimous UN security council resolutions passed that have increased the pressure on the North and at the same time we maintain the capability to deter North Korea’s most dangerous threats.”
