The head of the Pentagon called North Korea “a direct threat” to the United States
According to James Mattis, “can’t wait”, while Pyongyang will be “Intercontinental ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead”.
WASHINGTON, may 28. /Offset. TASS Anatoly Bochinin/. The DPRK is a danger to the United States, and herself a potential war on the Korean Peninsula would be a disaster, so Washington is trying to solve this problem diplomatically. This was stated by the Minister of defence of the USA James Mattis in an interview with CBS.
“The conflict with North Korea would be probably the most horrible war in the lives of most people,” he said, Recalling that at the disposal of the army of the DPRK are “hundreds of artillery shells and rocket launchers” that can strike at Seoul.
This regime is a threat for the region, for Japan, for South Korea, and in the event of war the threat will rise before China and Russia.James Malisheva Pentagon
“This is a direct threat to the United States,” — said the Pentagon chief. According to him, “can’t wait”, while Pyongyang will be “Intercontinental ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead”.
After that, the host channel asked whether the DPRK is a line or “point of no return”, the intersection of which will cause a reaction of Washington.
“I prefer not to answer this question. The President (Donald Trump — approx. TASS) required space for political manoeuvre in solving this problem. We denote red lines only if you’re going to follow them”, — said the head of the Pentagon, adding that now the United States is actively working with China on this issue.
