Trump warns North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to avoid “grave danger”



[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]South Korea wants “peaceful resolution” of the crisis

U.S. President Donald Trump has once again warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that the nuclear weapons he is developing “are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger”. He was addressing National Assembly in Seoul, South Korea on Wednesday.

Trump is on 12 day South Asia tour taking him to five countries in the region. He arrived in Tokoy on his first stop on Sunday and then visited South Korea. After addressing the South Korean law makers on Wednesday Trump left for Beijing. After his China visit he is scheduled to tour Vietnam and then Philippines where he will attend US-ASEAN summit at Manila on 13-14 November.

While referring to Kim Jong Un’s direct threat against US, Trump said, “We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. We will not be intimidated. And we will not let the worst atrocities in history be repeated here, on this ground we fought and died to secure. Do not underestimate us and do not try us.”

Trump  alleged Kim Jong’s regime for human rights abuses and  called on countries around the world to “isolate Pyongyang” by denying it “any form of support, supply or acceptance”.

Trump painted a dystopian picture of North Korea, saying people were suffering in “gulags” and some bribed government officials to work as “slaves” overseas rather than live under the government at home. He offered no evidence to support those accusations.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump had even offered a diplomatic opening to Pyongyang to “make a deal” and promised a “path to a much better future” for North Korea if it stops developing ballistic missiles and agreed to “complete, verifiable and total denuclearisation”.

However, North Korea has repeatedly rejected the negotiations until it develops nuclear weapons capable of hitting the U.S. mainland. U.S. intelligence community believes that North Korea may be just months away from achieving the goal.

Trump asked North Korean leader, “Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.” He further said “North Korea is a country ruled by a cult.” The South Korean law makers responded with standing ovations and applause during Trump’s speech.

On Monday, after his meeting with Japanese PM Shinzo Abe in Tokyo, Trump said that Japan would shoot North Korean missiles “out of the sky” if it bought the US weaponry needed for doing so and suggested Tokyo to take a stance it has avoided till now.

He pressed hard Japan to lower its trade deficit with US and buy more military weapons. He was quoted saying, “He (Abe) will shoot them out of the sky when he completes the purchase of lots of additional military equipment from the United States,“Trump said, referring to the North Korean missiles. ”

He repeated his warning saying “era of strategic patience” with North Korea was over and that two countries were working to counter the “dangerous aggressions”.

During his first maiden foreign visit US President Donald Trump inked several weapon deals with Saudi Arabia worth $350 billion.

Reuters reports that Japan’s policy is that it would only shoot down a missile if it was falling on Japanese territory or it poses an “existential threat” to Japan.

Recently North Korea fired missiles flying over northern Japan and falling across in the Pacific Ocean. Tokyo did not react militarily against Pyngyang’s move. North Korea has also threatened to hit Guam, an incorporated US territory in the western Pacific Ocean.

On Tuesday, South Korean President Moon Jae, while addressing joint press conference with US President Donald Trump in Seoul said that they reached an agreement to “peacefully resolve” the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue and settle  permanent peace regime on the peninsula.

South Koreans have been protesting against US President Donald Trump’s diatribe against North Korea demanding that Washington should not start war in their name.

Donald Trump, who began his diatribe against North Korea with “fire and fury” world has never witnessed in the history, had vowed to “totally destroy” North Korea if it threatens the US. During his address at UN General Assembly Trump had dismissed Kim Jong Un as a “rocket man” on a suicide mission.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
