Trump Says North Korea Dictator 'Is Acting Very, Very Badly'

20 Марта 2017, 01:13 | Winston Chapman

The impoverished, isolated North insists that it needs nuclear and missile weapons for self-defence against "hostile forces", including the U.S. and its ally South Korea.

"He's acting very very badly", the President on Sunday said of Kim Jong-un, according to the White House.

Although neither side brought up the subject publicly, Tillerson was expected to raise the prospect of financial penalties on Chinese companies and banks that do business with North Korea.

South Korea said on Monday North Korea's latest rocket-engine test showed "meaningful" advancement in engine function.

Able to evade North Korean air defense, 10 B-2s alone, with a total of 13,600-kg GBU-57 deep-penetration warheads and eight 900-kilogram GBU-31 satellite-guided bombs, can destroy or severely damage known nuclear weapons infrastructure in North Korea. But if Pyongyang were to "elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level that we believe requires action, then that option's on the table".

"An ICBM variant of the Unha could be sufficiently similar to the space launch vehicle in that it would be very likely to succeed, making it a good candidate for a political demonstration even though the Unha would make for a poor missile".

Asked about the possibility of using military force against the North, he said: 'All of the options are on the table'.

He cautioned against underestimating the country's capabilities, pointing to recent submarine launches.

The United Nations forbids North Korea from conducting long-range missile tests, but allows its satellite program for peaceful use.

Kim's announcement came hours before US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with President Xi Jinping of China - North Korea's only major global ally - in Beijing.

The US alleges that these tests have been carried out in violation of the UN Security Council resolution.

Graham added that the value of such testing for internal propaganda purposes should also not be ignored.

During the 2016 presidential campaign and since he took office, Trump criticized China for militarizing the South China Sea and warned about the changes he will make on US' trade relationship with the country. "It's important to them to have this ability to demonstrate technological prowess".
