PALM BEACH, Fla. – President Donald Trump said on Tuesday, December 24, that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un launched a missile instead of for Christmas.
The president was asked what he would do if North Korea conducts a long-range missile test.
The North has threatened to take unspecified action if sanctions are not reduced by the end of the year, and speculation focuses on the possibility of a new missile test, possibly an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering nuclear war.
The North has said that for the United States “Christmas Gifts Will depend on Washington’s actions.
President Trump, who is in Florida for the holidays, ended up thanking service members from each branch of the military via satellite when asked about North Korea. He opted for a wait and a viewing approach.
President Trump said, 0Maybe this is an opportunity where he sends me a beautiful vase unlike a missile test.”I can get a good present from him. You don’t know. You never know.”
The nuclear talks between the US and North Korea have stalled since the February summit between President Trump and Kim.
The new satellite image of a factory where North Korea builds military equipment used to launch long-range missiles reflects the creation of a new structure.
In New York, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric was asked whether Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had delivered a message to Kim John on Christmas Eve on Christmas Eve.
“Our message is to lead the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to work for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and to resume and level talks with the United States. Dujarric said diplomatic engagement is the only route for lasting peace and full sectarianization and verifiable nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
