United States is ready to take military action against DPRK due to its nuclear missile tests. This was reported during the meeting of UN Security Council by Rex Tillerson, the United States Secretary of State, CNN informs.
“The threat of a nuclear attack on Seoul, or Tokyo, is real, and it’s only a matter of time before North Korea develops the capability to strike the US mainland,” Tillerson said.
He also called on all states to pressure Pyongyang and suspend all diplomatic relations with North Korea and threatened to sanction third country entities and individuals supporting the DPRK's illegal activities.
At the same time, Secretary of State did not exclude military solution in this situation.
"All options for responding to future provocations must remain on the table. Diplomatic and financial leverage or power will be backed up by willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action, if necessary."
