Carter: North Koreans convinced of USA strike

US-POLITICS-TRUMP-SECURITY

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

General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, will meet with President Moon Jae-in in Seoul on Monday amid escalating tensions over North Korea's nuclear program, according to an official with South Korea's Blue House.

In June 1994, I met with Kim Il Sung in a time of crisis, when he agreed to put all their nuclear programs under strict supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency and to seek mutual agreement with the United States on a permanent peace treaty, to have summit talks with the president of South Korea, to expedite the recovery of the remains of American service personnel buried in his country, and to take other steps to ease tension on the peninsula.

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

Trump's call with Macron came hours after he talked with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a separate phone call.

Actor Kal Penn has pointed out the president of the United States' posts fit the bill.

Earlier this week, France had praised Trump's "determination" in standing up to Pyongyang.

On Thursday, Defense Secretary James Mattis said the military is ready to counter the threat from North Korea, but also said the effort is being "diplomatically led". Trump also said the USA was considering tighter sanctions against North Korea. Trump has often used sharp words to argue that China isn't doing enough to rein in North Korea, and has threatened punitive measures on trade if Xi fails to act. "Nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump".

In recent days, Trump and the North Korean regime have engaged in heated rhetoric about the Asian nation's nuclear weapons programme. "North Koreans are not suicidal". He added that China and North Korea understand that Trump "is actually prepared to use military force - credibility that prior administrations simply lacked". They may continue launching missile tests but they don't want a war, and the US doesn't want military action either.

The two leaders also reiterated a commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
