North Korea Threatens Reprisal after Trump’s Comments in Japan

SEOUL – North Korea threatened on Sunday reprisal against the United States over President Donald Trump’s comments during his Asia tour.

An article published by Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party called Trump unpredictable and capable of reckless acts.

“The only and one way to check his rash act is to tame him with absolute physical power,” said the article.

“If the US misjudges (North Korea’s) toughest will and dares to act recklessly, the latter will be compelled to deal a resolute and merciless punishment upon the former with the mobilisation of all forces,” added the article, which was also published by state agency KCNA.

“We warn Trump’s coteries once again. If they want to get rid of ruin, do not make reckless remarks,” concluded the article, which coincided with the US president’s arrival in Japan, the first stop in his Asia tour.

In an address to US troops at the Yokota air base, west of Tokyo, minutes after arriving in Japan, Trump had warned that “no one, no dictator, no regime and no nation should ever underestimate, ever, the American resolve,” without naming North Korea directly.

Earlier in the day, Trump had confirmed that the North Korean crisis will be one of the main issues on the agenda of his Asia trip and said it was a “big problem for our country and the world, and we want to get it solved.”

“And there’s been 25 years of total weakness and so we’re taking a very much different approach,” he added, justifying his aggressive rhetoric against North Korea.

He also added that a decision will be taken soon about whether to include North Korea to a list of state sponsors of terrorism.

Trump is expected to discuss North Korea’s weapons tests during a series of meetings on Sunday and Monday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
