The Free Press Journal - - WORLD - BY LALIT K JHA

A day af­ter North Korea fired an in­ter­me­di­ate range bal­lis­tic mis­sile over Ja­pan, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump said he is con­fi­dent that the US' op­tions to­wards North Korea are "ef­fec­tive and over­whelm­ing."

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

Trump said Amer­ica and its al­lies will never be in­tim­i­dated.

"We will de­fend our peo­ple, our na­tions, and our civil­i­sa­tion from all who dare to threaten our way of life. This in­cludes the regime of North Korea, which has once again shown its ut­ter con­tempt for its neigh­bours and for the en­tire world com­mu­nity," he said, re­ports PTI.

North Korea on Fri­day fired an in­ter­me­di­ate range bal­lis­tic mis­sile over Ja­pan and into the Pa­cific Ocean. But the North Amer­i­can Aerospace De­fense Com­mand (NORAD) had said the bal­lis­tic mis­sile did not pose a threat to North Amer­ica.
