President Donald Trump has called on his foreign allies to take action against North Korea’s missile threat.
Speaking in Warsaw in Poland Thursday, where Trump is meeting with his NATO partners, the U.S. president said that North Korea is behaving in a “very, very dangerous manner” and that something needs to be done about it.
“It’s a shame they’re behaving this way, they are behaving in a very, very dangerous manner and something needs to be done about it,” he said.
Trump didn’t want to reveal what the U.S. plans are to deal with North Korea, but described them as severe. He added that the U.S. will evaluate the issue in the coming weeks and months and react accordingly.
On Wednesday, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said that the country was ready to use force if it became the only option to stop North Korea’s nuclear missile program.
At a U.N. Security Council meeting, Nikki Haley said she would prefer a global diplomatic action, but the ongoing nuclear missile tests in North Korea were closing that possibility.
On Tuesday, North Korea claimed it successfully launched an intercontinental ballistic missile test that, according to some experts, could reach Alaska and Hawaii in the U.S., Reuters reported.
The United States has pressed China and Russia to join them in tacking North Korea. Speaking at the U.N. council, Haley said that if these would not support the U.S. then the latter would move on its own.
Trump says will confront threat from North Korea very strongly
