Nuclear missile threat
AROUND THE WORLD
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.
