“Refrain from provocative actions and rhetoric or else” | US calls out North Korea again

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

As tensions continue to rise between US and North Korea, the Pentagon on Sunday called for the North Korea to tread carefully and avoid destabilizing the situation any further.

Pentagon spokesman Gary Ross gave a statement. “We call on (North Korea) to refrain from provocative, destabilizing actions and rhetoric, and to make the strategic choice to fulfill its international obligations and commitments and return to serious talks”. “North Korea’s unlawful weapons programs represent a clear, grave threat to US national security.”
The spokesman’s statement came just hours after a North Korean newspaper reported Pyongyang was ready to out a US aircraft carrier conducting drills with Japanese destroyers near the Philippines.
The official newspaper of the North Korean government’s Central Committee, reported in an editorial that the country is ready to illustrate its “military force” by sinking the “nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike.” The post claimed Pyongyang has weaponry that “can reach continental US and Asia Pacific region” and the “absolute weapon,” a hydrogen bomb.
 
President Trump has pledged to rein in the “menace” of North Korea’s nuclear program, and has gotten China, as one of North Korea’s only allies, to put pressure on its neighbor to change course.
