US op­tions on N. Korea threat ef­fec­tive: Trump

Deccan Chronicle - - WORLD -

Wash­ing­ton, Sept. 16: Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has said Amer­ica and its al­lies will never be in­tim­i­dated and in­sisted that the US’ op­tions for ad­dress­ing the threat posed by North Korea are both “ef­fec­tive and over­whelm­ing”.

Mr Trump’s re­marks came in re­sponse to the lat­est bal­lis­tic mis­sile test con­ducted by North Korea. The re­marks also came after H.R. McMaster, the US’ Na­tional Se­cu­rity ad­viser, reaf­firmed that the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion has mil­i­tary op­tions in place for deal­ing with North Korea.

“After see­ing your ca­pa­bil­i­ties and com­mit­ment here, I am more con­fi­dent than ever that our op­tions in ad­dress­ing this threat are both ef­fec­tive and over­whelm­ing,” Mr Trump said in his ad­dress to air force per­son­nel and fam­i­lies on the 70th an­niver­sary of the US Air Force.

Mr Trump said Amer­ica and its al­lies will never be in­tim­i­dated. “We will de­fend our peo­ple, our na­tions,” he said.
