Trump: If North Korea sanctions don't work, we go to 'Phase 2'


If the latest round of sanctions imposed on Pyongyang fail to yield Washington's desired effects, US President Donald Trump warned ominously Friday that the US will go to "phase two," APA reports quoting sputniknews.

 

"If the sanctions don't work, we will have to go to phase two, and phase two may be a very rough thing, may be very, very unfortunate for the world," the president said Friday afternoon.

 

Trump delivered the remarks to reporters at a joint news conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

 

"I don't think I'm going to exactly play that card. But we'll have to see. If the sanctions don't work, we'll go to phase two," Trump explained.

 

Excerpts of Trump's speech about the new sanctions, which is yet to be delivered, state: "I am announcing that we are launching the LARGEST-EVER set of new sanctions on the North Korean regime.
