The President made the announcement on Twitter early Friday morning, saying that "military solutions are now fully in place. should North Korea act unwisely".

"Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" he wrote.

Turnbull told reporters in Canberra the only way to deal with North Korea was with "maximum economic pressure" and welcomed new sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council. He also retweeted a US Pacific Command message that said US planes stand ready to "fulfill a #FightTonight mission".

Seven months out from the next South Australian election and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is in Adelaide to rally Liberal MPs and the party faithful.

Australia would implement the sanctions, Turnbull said, adding that it was critical North Korea came to its senses.

If the Commons backs the request, at least one of Britain's three Rivet Joint spy planes could fly to a base in Japan within a fortnight.

Washington and Seoul say the exercises are defensive in nature and crucial to maintaining a deterrent against North Korean aggression.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has played down Donald Trump's threatening words to North Korea, after the US President threatened Pyongyang with "fire and fury".

The streets of Pyongyang also reportedly remain calm amid rising tension in the region.

Mr Turnbull will speak at the party's annual meeting on Saturday, where he's sure to tell MPs and members they can win in March.
