There is no more ‘strategic patience’ for the North Korean government from the United States; that’s how President Donald Trump put it, describing the U.S. policy towards Kim Jong-un’s rule. The U.S. leader said this at a joint press conference with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in, which took place in the White House.   

‘The era of strategic patience with the North Korean regime has failed. And, frankly, that patience is over,’ he said as quoted by CNN.

According to Trump, the U.S. is facing "the threat of the reckless and brutal regime in North Korea" that "has no regard for the safety and security of its people or its neighbors". Such circumstances demand a decisive response, the official stressed, urging China and other countries in the Asia-Pacific region to impose sanctions against the North Korean government.
