Washington, August 12: The powerful enemies, North Korea and U.S. are stepping on the brink of nuclear war day by day. Both the leaders of the dominant countries look highly furious, definitely not good for the world. Recently, President Donald Trump issued a new threat to North Korea on Friday, saying the U.S military was “locked and loaded”.
The Pentagon has officially said that U.S and South Korea would proceed as planned with a joint military exercise in 10 days, an action sure to further antagonize N. Korea. Amidst the ruckus, Germany, China and Russia voiced dismay at the war of words.
Trump, who has pressed China to help rein in its ally North Korea, spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping on call and now, the two leaders reiterating their mutual commitment to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
Referring to Kim, Trump added, “If he utters one threat… or if he does anything with respect to Guam or any place else that’s an American ally or a territory, he will truly regret it, and he will regret it fast.”
Guam is home to a U.S. air base, a Navy installation, a Coast Guard group and roughly 6,000 U.S. military personnel. The Pacific island that is a U.S. territory, posted emergency guidelines on Friday to help residents prepare for any potential nuclear attack after a threat from North Korea to fire missiles in its vicinity.
And at the moment, Washington wants to stop Pyongyang from developing nuclear missiles that could hit the United States. North Korea sees its nuclear arsenal as protection against the United States and its partners in Asia.
People can only be hopeful and wait for the rough spat to get over.
