U.S. President Donald Trump says he has given the go-ahead for Japan and South Korea to buy a "substantially increased amount" of sophisticated military equipment from the United States.

Donohue, whose group represents more than 3 million USA businesses, said the move would damage relations between the White House and business community.

The United States "must not withdraw" from the free trade agreement with South Korea, senior Republicans and Democrats on congressional committees overseeing trade policy said in a statement on Tuesday. 'I believe that President Xi agrees with me 100 percent.

However, the talks stalled this summer as North Korea launched a series of missile tests and the Trump administration pledged to stand by its ally South Korea. "Certainly that's not a first choice, but we'll see what happens".

Putin met South Korea's Moon Jae-in on the sidelines of an economic summit in the eastern Russian city of Vladivostok amid mounting global concern that their neighbour plans more weapons tests, including possibly a long-range missile launch before a weekend anniversary.

He has asked the United Nations to consider tough new sanctions after North Korea's latest nuclear test. The task of President Trump, Secretary Mattis and the rest of the national security team is to develop better options, whether we're talking purely military or a combination of military, diplomatic and economic.

Asked Sunday whether he was going to attack North Korea, Trump said simply: "We'll see".

Last month, Trump's chief trade negotiator, Robert Lighthizer, held a daylong meeting by video with South Korea's trade minister, Kim Hyun-chong, and there have been subsequent discussions between officials to resolve complaints that Korea has not fulfilled its commitment to open up its services market, among other issues. The U.S. military said the four remaining Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) batteries would be deployed on a golf course in the south of the country on Thursday.

"The US will lose significant market share to the EU, Australia, China and others while sending a very risky message that America is not interested in doing business in Asia", wrote Tami Overby, the lobbying group's senior vice president for Asia.
