Susan Rice gives useless advice on North Korea
The american president Donald Trump reiterated Saturday that the United States was willing to take, if necessary, "military action" against North Korea, during a telephone conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, has reported on the White House in a press release.
In a statement Saturday, Macron said the situation "undermines the preservation of worldwide peace" and the North Korean regime "poses a serious threat to the security of its neighbors". "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", said a readout of the phone call.
President Trump suggested that his earlier warning to North Korea that it would be "met with fire and fury" if it continued to threaten the U.S.
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". On Friday, he tweeted that America's military remains "locked and loaded" in the region.
Soderberg criticizes the president's lack of diplomacy and she personally wishes that the global community increase pressure on North Korea rather than use outright force.
