North Korea threatens ‘merciless retaliation’ to Trump’s remarks’


Pyongyang responded to US President Donald Trump’s latest salvo in their war of words by calling the American leader’s remarks during his trip to Asia “foolish”, APA reports quoting sputniknews

Speaking to US service members at Yakota Air Base, Japan, Trump said "no one, no dictator, no regime and no nation should underestimate, ever, American resolve… every once in a while in the past they underestimated us. It was not pleasant for them. Was it? It was not pleasant. We will never yield."

 

After speaking at the air base, Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, shaking hands at the Kasumigaseki Country Club where the duo played a round of golf.

 

During a speech in Tokyo, Trump reiterated a call made by Vice President Mike Pence earlier in 2017, that the "era of strategic patience is over."

 

"We are working to counter the dangerous aggressions of the [North Korean] regime," he said. "The regime continues development of its unlawful weapons programs, including its illegal nuclear tests and outrageous launches of ballistic missiles directly over Japanese territory, [which] are a threat to the civilized world and international peace and stability."

 

"We will not stand for that: the era of strategic patience is over," Trump remarked.
