The US Secretary of State, John Kerry is in China on the latest leg of his emergency tour to try and defuse tension around North Korea's nuclear threats. In a news conference he's suggested America could remove its newly-bolstered missile defense in the region if Pyongyang abandons its nuclear weapons program. It's believed that offer might encourage China to put pressure on North Korea - something it's been reluctant to do so far. Earlier this week a Pentagon report, released by mistake, claimed the North already had the capability to launch a nuclear missile. The White House, however, quickly dismissed those findings as 'premature'. Nevertheless, America, Japan and South Korea have continued to build up defenses, with Seoul saying it's braced for the North's missile test anytime. Russia has warned against the escalation of the crisis - as RT's Aleksey Yaroshevsky reports.
