The US President Donald trump said that “not be pleased” if North Korea will conduct a new nuclear test and refused to rule out a possible US military response to such actions of the DPRK. Such statement the American President has sounded in interview to TV channel CBS, full version of which will air Sunday, April 30, the program Face the Nation (“face the nation”).
Answering the question of why is not working the pressure on the leader of DPRK Kim Jong-UN, trump said that he “understands that we are not happy” nuclear test. Trump noted that, perhaps due to the pressure exerted on North Korea, the U.S. and China, “until now nothing has happened.”
“It was the launch of a small rocket. It was not a nuclear test. We’ll see what happens,” he added.
On specifying question of the leader, which means “we’re not happy,” trump replied: “If he [Kim Jong UN] will conduct a nuclear test, I’ll be happy. And I can tell you that the President of China [XI Jinping], a very respected man, also will not be pleased.”
“Not happy” means military action?”, — asked the host. “I don’t know. Let’s see,” — said trump.
Interview with trump was recorded a day after the next launch by Pyongyang of ballistic missiles. It was implemented on Saturday, April 29, from territory to the West of the country. According to preliminary data, it was launch of a ballistic medium-range missiles. Presumably, the launch was unsuccessful.
The launch occurred a few hours after statements by U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson of readiness to resist North Korea “with the use of military force, if necessary”. “The stock should remain possible response to future provocations,” said Tillerson at a meeting of the UN Security Council.
