Clearly, US President Donald Trump seems overwhelmed and even out of breath with the new North Korean missile fire. According to our colleagues in Figaro , the US head of state has run out of options and even unable to react to this provocation too much from Pyongyang.
As proof, he did not meet his Security Council. Limited to the minimum service, Donald Trump especially gave the impression of diversion. There was also a voiceless American president after the Hwasong-15 intercontinental missile fired, which flew nearly 1,000 kilometers away to the sea of Japan.
It is clear that the American president’s Asian tour was unsuccessful. He flattered himself with having ” unified the nations, including China and Russia ” against the North Korean nuclear and ballistic program. Just back from this long Asian tour, he watched helplessly this new affront North Korean.
The US president has been content with a poor statement: ” We will take care of this situation, we will solve that, ” he said dry Tuesday night at the White House.
Donald Trump hopes that China will be able to find the solution to the North Korean problem. The US president spoke Wednesday with Xi Jinping the Chinese president. Trump asked his Chinese counterpart to “use all available levers to convince North Korea to abandon its provocations and return to the path of denuclearization,” it said in a statement.
The United States called on all countries to cut off diplomatic and trade relations with North Korea by threatening to “completely destroy” Kim Jong-un’s “war- torn” regime . “The behavior of North Korea is increasingly intolerable,” said a diplomat at a meeting of the Security Council.
Emmanuel Macron also commented on the situation, saying in an interview with France 24 “we must now increase sanctions” . before adding that he counted “a lot on China and Russia to take the toughest and most effective sanctions on Korea” .
