North Korea's Nuclear Threat Doesn't Phase Samsung's Shareholders
Britain, America's top European ally, could formally refuse Donald Trump's call for help in waging war against North Korea, so long as Kim Jong-un does not strike Hawaii or the U.S. mainland.
In an unusual move, a statement threatening possible military action against the US was then carried on August 8 in North Korea's Rodong Sinmum newspaper and was delivered that same day by military helicopters to Chagang province, a source in the province bordering China told RFA's Korean Service.
"Wealthy people and people who live in the cities are more anxious than others about Kim Jong Un's nuclear provocations", the source said.
The U.S. military is "locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely", Trump warned Pyongyang in return.
North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to US bombers. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path".
The United Kingdom is working together with the United States and other partners on diplomatic solution to the North Korean crisis, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Saturday.
Asked about President Trump's latest statements, Ms Merkel declined to say whether Germany would stand with the USA in case of a military conflict with North Korea.
Why North Korea has no interest in talking to the South
North Korea's latest missile test was its 13 (and tenth successful one) since US President Donald Trump assumed office in January. He told CNN that while there was some fear, people were used to living with North Korean posturing.
