President Donald Trump recently suggested that he wants to focus on dismantling North Korea and their nuclear weapons program.
It is highly expected that he will discuss this with Chinese President Xi Jinping during this week’s summit.
On Thursday, North Korea’s ambassador to Russia warned the United States that they would deliver the “most ruthless blow” if they try to do anything against them.
“Our army has already said that if there will be even the smallest provocation from the United States during exercises, we are ready to deliver the most ruthless blow,” Interfax news agency quoted ambassador Kim Hyong-Jun as saying.
“We have the readiness and ability to counter any challenge from the US,” he was quoted as saying.
Here’s what Trump had to say about it:
It is time to put the pesky North Koreans in their place. They are a menace to the world and it is about time that we deal with them, especially before they finish their nuclear weapons.
