Trump Stresses Need to End North Korean Threat

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam – US President Donald Trump stressed on Sunday during a state visit to Vietnam the need for all responsible nations to act to ensure that North Korea no longer poses a threat.

Pyongyang’s repeated missile and weapons tests, including a nuclear test on Sept. 3, have escalated tensions on the Korean peninsula to some of the highest levels seen since the Korean War of 1950-53.

“All responsible nations must act now to ensure that North Korea’s rogue regime stops threatening the world with unthinkable loss of life,” Trump said at a press conference with Vietnam’s President Trang Dai Quang after their meeting at the presidential palace in Hanoi.

“We want stability not chaos. We want peace, not war,” said the US president while offering the region cooperation in matters of security, antiterrorism, cybercrime, human and drug trafficking and disease prevention.

Later during the day, Trump is scheduled to travel to Manila to take part in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit, which starts Sunday night and concludes on Tuesday.

“The ASEAN summit is going to be something, I think, very, very special. I look forward to attending it. We will also discuss the growing threat from North Korea,” Trump said.

ASEAN is made up of Myanmar, Brunei, Cambodia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Manila will also host bilateral and multilateral meetings involving the US, China, South Korea, Japan, India, the European Union and the United Nations.

The Philippines is the last stop in Trump’s Asia tour, which started in Japan, followed by visits to South Korea, China and Vietnam.
