Mr Corbyn said a Labour government would work to rid the world of nuclear weapons and added the "global pressure for dialogue and diplomacy must be overwhelming".

Representative Keith Ellison said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is "acting more responsible" than President Donald Trump.

The MP for Islington North used the 72nd anniversary of the USA atomic bombing of Nagasaki which was marked last week to highlight the tragic consequences of nuclear weapons.

He continued, "The time for cranking up the antiwar machine is right now".

Not Donald Trump , not Barack Obama- it's been going on for a long, long time. "Our message is plain and simple". You are not wanted in this great commonwealth.

The intervention comes days after the Labour leader, a long-term opponent and campaigner against nuclear weapons, highlighted the threat to civilians that such weapons pose. "Our government must press for measured responses to bring the temperature down".

National security adviser H.R. McMaster on Sunday defended President Trump's escalating rhetoric directed at North Korea and said that he does not believe that the United States is any closer to war than it was a week ago. I mean, we're not North Korea, thank God.

McMaster said that Trump "made clear that the United States will not tolerate our citizens or our allies being threatened by this rogue regime". "Hopefully, Kim Jong-un will find another path!" And we're working on other things, including infrastructure.

"If he utters one threat in the form of an overt threat", Trump told reporters, "if he does anything with respect to Guam, or anyplace else that's an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it, and he will regret it fast".
