Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

13 August, 2017, 16:25 | Author: Brenda Erickson

For its part, the White House published a communiqué according to which the two leaders called for North Korea to "cease its provocative behaviour and brought to the climbing" and reaffirm "their mutual commitment to a denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".

It said the U.S. was ready "along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures" to end any nuclear threat from the North.

Meanwhile, in a separate statement issued by the Elysee Palace on Saturday, Macron urged the global community to refrain from escalating the situation around North Korea.

US President Donald Trump and his French counterpart pledged in a phone call Saturday to work to denuclearise North Korea, but Trump again spoke of possible "military measures" if other steps fail.

And that doesn't mean talk hasn't been tough - the USA has been speaking forcefully to North Korea all this time, said Ellen Tauscher, former US under secretary of state for arms control and worldwide security under President Barack Obama .

North Korea has lashed back at the US following President Donald Trump's latest warnings. He sounds like the leader of North Korea, not the leader of the United States. On Friday, the president Trump had assured that the military option was now "ready".

The report quotes Xi as saying: "At present, the relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula".

In response, Japan began on Saturday to deploy its missile defense system Patriot, after threats from Pyongyang. North Korea responded by saying it was considering a plan to attack Guam and dismissed Trump's warnings as a "load of nonsense".

"I think it's only fair to point out he inherited this crisis", Mr. Gore told Newsweek.
