North Korea Refuses to Negotiate

North Korea Refuses to Negotiate

U.S. B-1B bombers flew this week over South Korea with fighter jet escorts from the allied nation.

As well as the skepticism showed by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who told reporters that he wanted to calm things down between the U.S and North Korea, other politicians have also spoke out.

This comes after the president threatened to destroy North Korea before shouting down Rex Tillerson's diplomatic attempts a "waste of time". "We just can't", Trump said in response to the question, adding that China has been very helpful in the situation.

However, since the only possible way to resolve an impasse like the one we currently find ourselves in, is through long, patient diplomacy, I am more than a little concerned that diplomatic success may not be within the reach of an administration that now refers to the leader of North Korea as "Little Rocket Man".

As long as the US maintains its pressure on North Korea, it will not negotiate over its nuclear weapons arsenal, the Hermit Kingdom's foreign minister, Ri Yong-ho told Russia's TASS News Agency.

North Korea has made similar threats against the United States for decades. In the last three months, North Korea conducted its most powerful nuclear test ever and launched two missiles over northern Japan.

Despite Trump's tough talk, John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, said Thursday that North Korea's nuclear threat was "manageable" for now.

"They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the west coast of the United States", Morozov said, according to RIA.

"Before. the ink was dry on the contract, they were already starting again with the missiles, and with the nuclear, frankly", Trump said. The North Korean government views them as a dress rehearsal for an invasion - even as the U.S. insists they are purely defensive in nature.
