The United States has threatened, in an interview with the Financial Times on Sunday, to attack North Korea so as to restrain its nuclear program, Press TV reported.
US President Donald Trump said he will discuss North Korea’s nuclear issue with Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping during their meeting in Florida later this week.
“China has great influence over North Korea. China will either decide to help us with North Korea or they won’t,” he said. “If they do, that will be very good for China, and if they don’t, it won’t be good for anyone.”
“If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will,” he continued.
However, Trump has not mentioned the possible measures Washington could take.
“I’m not going to tell you. You know, I am not the United States of the past where we tell you where we are going to hit in the Middle East,” he stated.
