Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

13 August 2017, 04:24 | Darnell Patrick

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump responded to information that North Korea may now be able to miniaturize nuclear weapons.

The leaders also discussed the need to confront the "increasingly unsafe situation" with Pyongyang's destabilizing behavior.

"President Trump stated that the United States is ready, along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic, and military measures to achieve that goal".

The rhetoric that US President Donald Trump has been using in connection with North Korea is reminiscent of former US President George W. Bush's statements on preventive war, Head of the Regional Security Department of the Defense Studies Center at the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies Sergei Yermakov said on Friday.

Earlier this week, Trump said if North Korea made any more threats to the US, it will be met with "fire and fury".

French President Emmanuel Macron has called on all sides in the North Korean nuclear crisis to act responsibly "to prevent any escalation of tensions" after a days-long war of words between Washington and Pyongyang. "While force remains on the table, this path where the worldwide community increases pressure on North Korea must be tried first", said Soderberg.

The president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger a USA attack against North Korea and "big, big trouble" for its leader, Kim Jong Un.

Sen. Graham also said he doesn't think Trump needs congressional approval to launch a military strike against North Korea, claiming, "There's nothing in the Constitution limiting the ability to use force to protect America".

"It is clearly time for all parties to focus on ways to reduce tensions", she said Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for the secretary-general of the united Nations, Antonio Guterres.
