"The congressmen said such statements had dramatically increased tensions with North Korea and raised the specter of nuclear war".

More than 60 Democratic lawmakers have expressed their "profound concern" over US President Donald Trump's threatening rhetoric about North Korea, insisting that any military attack "must be debated and authorized by Congress".

The Labour leader's warning comes after he called on Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to hold direct talks "in the interest of sanity". "The risks of an unintended escalation into full-blown conflict are too great for the whole world".

He added: "We can not play fast and loose with nuclear weapons and nuclear threats because do you know what - a nuclear explosion doesn't stop at national borders, it doesn't stop at the vicinity where the bomb drops".

Writing in the Sunday Mirror, Mr Corbyn said there can be "no question of blind loyalty to the erratic and belligerent Trump administration" over the crisis. "Our government must press for measured responses to bring the temperature down".

Pyongyang responded by saying it is "carefully examining" a plan to strike the US Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, claiming preparations for the strike could be ready in days.

Thousands of youths, workers and trade union members gathered in the capital Pyongyang and around the country for rallies, saluting pictures of the country's former dictators, Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il.

According to the White House, Trump and Xi affirmed that the recent adoption of a new UN Security Council resolution regarding North Korea was an important and necessary step toward achieving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.
