MOSCOW, 20 Oct — RIA Novosti. Washington needs to be ready that North Korea may soon launch a missile attack on the United States, reports the Washington Examiner the words of CIA Director Michael Pompeo.
The head of the CIA believes that the likelihood that North Korea will launch a missile attack on the United States increased for the last time, and also will continue to grow because of “the lack of international pressure on Pyongyang”.
“You only have to think how to prevent the last step,” said Pompeo.
The CIA Director also said that the American President Donald trump intends to use the armed forces to prevent the impact of the DPRK on the U.S., however, Pompeo said, it is not clear when this measure will be necessary.
The confrontation between Pyongyang and Washington has intensified recently, after the military exercises the US and South Korea hitting on the DPRK in case of war. Pyongyang is afraid of the American threats and increases nuclear and missile potential.
Earlier, Russia and China offered the DPRK to declare a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches, and South Korea and the United States to refrain from conducting exercises in the region to stabilize the situation on the Peninsula, but in Washington, this initiative was ignored.
