Trump Calls Korean Leader Over THAAD Talks with China

Erik Tate | 14 April, 2017, 19:14

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on ABC TV's "This Week" on Sunday likewise pointed out that the missile strike on Syria served as a warning to countries including North Korea. Trump has also called on China, North Korea's strongest ally, to take stronger action to curb those nuclear ambitions.

In an interview with ABC's "This Week", Tillerson conveyed this message: "If you violate worldwide agreements, if you fail to live up to commitments, if you become a threat to others, at some point a response is likely to be undertaken".

As a U.S. Navy strike group steamed toward the Korean Peninsula to send a message to North Korea, McMaster told Fox News, "This is a rogue regime that is now a nuclear-capable regime". American administrations have long ruled out even pinprick strikes on North Korean nuclear sites or missile targets because of the potential for catastrophic damage in South Korea.

The US Navy strike group Carl Vinson cancelled a trip to Australia, heading towards the Korean Peninsula instead, in a move that will raise tensions in the region.

North Korea has pledged to bolster its defenses to protect against such airstrikes. "We will bolster up in every way our capability for self-defence to cope with the USA evermore reckless moves for a war and defend ourselves with our own force", it said.

But in what could be seen as a possible change on China's North Korea policy, Beijing's foreign ministry released a rather refrained quote to Washington's uncommon decision to send back its USS Carl Vinson strike group near the Korean peninsula, in contrast to widely expected strong opposition comments. China's official Xinhua News Agency reported before the end of the Mar-a-Lago summit that Xi had invited Trump to a state visit in China later this year, most likely after the Communist Party congress, and the American president accepted the invitation "with pleasure".

Trump ordered the strike in Syria in response to a deadly chemical weapons attack on Syrians.

Trump will soon review options for removing the "threat" posed by North Korean missiles, White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster said on Sunday.

"President Xi clearly understands, and I think agrees, that the situation has intensified and has reached a certain level of threat that action has to be taken", Tillerson said. Hagiuda said that given the Trump-Xi meeting, the Japanese and US leaders discussed how Japan, the United States, South Korea and China should deal with North Korea while working with one another.

"In terms of North Korea, we've been very clear that our objective is a denuclearized Korea peninsula", he said.
