US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Monday told the US Army to be ready with military options on North Korea, but emphasized that efforts to deal with Pyongyang were being led diplomatically.

"There is one thing the US Army can do and that is you have got to be ready to ensure that we have military options that our President can employ if needed," Mattis said in a speech at an annual US Army conference.

"We currently are in a diplomatically led effort and how many times have you seen the UN Security Council vote unanimously, now twice in a row, to impose stronger sanctions on North Korea," Mattis said.
