Markey to Trump: Negotiate with Kim Jong Un
Perhaps mindful of parallels that could be drawn over defiance of global norms, North Korea denounced the US missile strike on Syria as "intolerable", and reiterated its own right to self-defense.
Like his predecessors in the White House, Trump wants China to do more to influence the North's behaviour, but has gone further than others in threatening to go it alone if Beijing fails to step up to the plate.
Cheng Xiaohe, a North Korea expert from Beijing's Renmin University, said by attacking Syria Trump had killed four birds with one stone.

Bush and Barack Obama on China, told The Guardian.

Senator Payne said Australia was already contributing significantly in advising and assisting personnel in Iraq.
Xinhua, the Chinese state news agency, accused Trump of launching the attack both because of his domestic political weakness and as a way to distract from widespread accusations he is a pawn of the Russian government, which is allied with Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

"The US missile attack against Syria is a clear and unforgivable act of aggression against a sovereign state and we strongly condemn this", KCNA quoted an unnamed spokesman for the North Korean foreign ministry as saying.
