Some­thing has to be done on N Korea: Trump

The Hitavada - - WORLD - By Lalit K Jha

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has said that he has a dif­fer­ent ap­proach on North Korea’s re­cent mis­sile and nu­clear tests, as­sert­ing that the prob­lem has reached a point where “some­thing has to be done”.

North Korea has fired 22 mis­siles, in­clud­ing two across Ja­pan, dur­ing 15 tests since Fe­bru­ary this year, draw­ing a sharp re­ac­tion from the US and its al­lies.

“I think I might have a some­what dif­fer­ent at­ti­tude and a dif­fer­ent way than other peo­ple. I think per­haps I feel stronger and tougher on that sub­ject than other peo­ple, but I lis­ten to ev­ery­body,” Trump told re­porters in a joint me­dia ap­pear­ance with vis­it­ing Cana­dian Prime Min­is­ter

Jus­tine Trudeau at his Oval Of­fice on Wed­nes­day.

“Ul­ti­mately, I will do what is right for the United States and

re­ally, what is right for the world. Be­cause that is re­ally a world prob­lem; that is beyond just the United States,” he said.

Re­spond­ing to a ques­tion, the US Pres­i­dent said it is a prob­lem that has to be solved.

Later at night, Trump told Fox News that the world has reached a sit­u­a­tion on North Korea where some­thing has to be done.

“This should have been han­dled 25 years ago, it should have been han­dled 20 years ago, and 10 years ago, and five years ago,” he said.

“It should have been han­dled by nu­mer­ous – not just (for­mer US Pres­i­dent Barack) Obama, but cer­tainly Pres­i­dent Obama should have taken care of it. Now it is at a point where it is very, very far ad­vanced. Some­thing has to be done. We can not al­low this to hap­pen,” Trump said.

Mean­while North Korea’s For­eign Min­is­ter said that Trump has lit the fuse of war against us.
