North Korea has been ramping up its aggressive rhetoric against the United States after leader Kim Jong-un kickstarted a war of words with Donald Trump.
Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton said: “North Korea will get deliverable nuclear weapons. That’s the point we are at. This is coming very soon unless we take action.
“I think the fact that Secretary Tillerson is still talking about the possibility of negotiation with North Korea undermines the signal of strength that we are trying to show.”
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US was “open” to holding diplomatic talks with Pyongyang to defuse the tension fueling fears of World War 3.
