Tillerson, Mattis insist military options remain for North Korea

Danilo Martir | 20 Agosto, 2017, 23:21

North Korea this week has detailed its plan to test-launch ballistic missiles into waters near the U.S. Pacific territory.

The intense rhetoric between the two sides appeared to have cooled down a little after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said on Wednesday he would watch the actions of the United States a little longer before making any decision on firing missiles towards Guam.

This has cooled slightly in recent days, with suggestions from North Korea that dictator Kim Jong Un would monitor the actions of the US before launching toward Guam.

Donald Trump had said the United States military is "locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely", having previously warned Pyongyang would face "fire and fury" if it continued to threaten America.

"In close collaboration with our allies, there are strong military consequences if DPRK initiates hostilities", Mattis said, referring to an abbreviation of the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

He has repeatedly urged North Korea not to "cross the red line " but had not previously elaborated what that would constitute. North Korea has tested medium to long range missiles with varied success and has threatened to use them on Guam.

The latest statement by Kim Jong-un signalling a pause in Pyongyang's war of words with Washington has given the United States a window of a few days to negotiate a way of defusing a unsafe standoff. In early August, Pyongyang said it was considering using the weapon to strike Guam after USA president Donald Trump stepped up his rhetoric against the regime. -South Korea military exercise known as Ulchi-Freedom Guardian. "He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody's seen before what will happen in North Korea".

The US and North Korea have exchanged a series of warmongering statements over the last week.

Trump later praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a "wise" decision after he delayed the Guam decision.

North Korea described the South Korean administration of President Moon Jae-in as a "failure" and said economic sanctions are not compatible with calls for dialogue. He has repeatedly urged North Korea not to "cross the red line" but had not previously elaborated what that would constitute.

Earlier this month, Trump threatened to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it continues to advance his nuclear program.

"South Korea and the US are in full communication and discussions", he added. A North Korean missile could reach Japan in about 10 minutes.

He urged the North to halt its efforts to develop a nuclear-tipped weapon that could reach the USA mainland. "The four of us confirmed the importance of the unwavering U.S. commitment to extend the deterrence", he said.

The situation has added to pressure on the US and South Korea to stop the military drills.

China is North Korea's main ally and biggest trade partner.

Gen Dunford was responding to questions about Mr Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon saying in a new interview that the threat posed by North Korea can not be handled by force.
