Nu­clear mis­sile threat

AROUND THE WORLD

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

THE threat of nu­clear mis­sile at­tack by North Korea is ac­cel­er­at­ing, US de­fence sec­re­tary Jim Mat­tis has said.

In re­marks in Seoul with South Korean De­fense Min­is­ter Song Young-moo at his side, Mr Mat­tis ac­cused North Korea of il­le­gal and un­nec­es­sary mis­sile and nu­clear pro­grams – and vowed to de­feat any at­tack.

Mr Mat­tis said the North en­gages in “over-the-top rhetoric” and be­hav­iour, adding the US will never ac­cept North Korea be­com­ing a nu­clear state.
