"The government has taken note of the sanctions-easing resolution China and Russian Federation submitted to the U.N. Security Council", said South Korean Unification Minister Kim Yeon-chul.
Kim had said that he had a "Christmas gift" for Trump if the nuclear arms negotiations between the two countries were not resumed by December 31.

But senior military commanders said Friday that the United States is ready for "whatever" Pyongyang might do. The US official strongly emphasized the current plan is for it to be a show of force only, with no direct US military action against North Korea.
