Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday warned against an "escalation of tensions" over North Korea amid a growing war of words between Washington and Pyongyang.

For its part, the White House published a communiqué according to which the two leaders called for North Korea to "cease its provocative behaviour and brought to the climbing" and reaffirm "their mutual commitment to a denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".

The statement came just hours after Chinese leader Xi Jinping urged Trump in a separate phone call to avoid rhetoric that could inflame tensions with Pyongyang.

North Korea has reportedly been threatening to attack the USA territory of Guam more than 2,000 miles southeast of North Korea in the Pacific Ocean.

"The presidents Trump and Macron are also committed to work together, and with their allies, to apply the sanctions of the united Nations and getting to dénucléariser North Korea", has also announced the executive american. "While force remains on the table, this path where the worldwide community increases pressure on North Korea must be tried first", said Soderberg.

That prompted Trump to reassure citizens of the United States territory that the American military was prepared to ensure their safety.

In response, Japan began on Saturday to deploy its missile defense system Patriot, after threats from Pyongyang.

This was revealed after a Defense Intelligence Agency report indicated that the country has manufactured a miniaturized nuclear warhead which can fit inside long-range missiles capable of reaching that continental United States.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States".

Asked Friday if the US was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that".

"Force has always been an option, but it has always been the last option, not the first", Soderberg said.
