US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has stated that there was a real possibility of a nuclear strike by North Korea against other countries.
“The threat of a nuclear attack on Seoul and Tokyo is real. It’s only a matter of time before North Korea will develop the potential for impact on the US mainland. North Korea has repeatedly declared plans for the implementation of such an attack, “– he said.
Tillerson said that the United States began a new campaign that will focus on the protection of US national security. According to him, it will be deployed quickly and deal a severe blow to North Korea’s interests.
“Our goal is not regime change or a threat to the people of North Korea,” – he added.
Tillerson threatened to sanction individuals and companies that help North Korea develop nuclear weapons.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump said he any action he will take in regard to North Korea, is assuming that leader Kim Jong-un is too a reasonable man.
