North Korea is not interested in diplomacy with the United States until it achieves an important milestone in its weapons program: the ability to strike “all the way to the East coast of the mainland US” with a long range intercontinental ballistic missile.
“Before we can engage in diplomacy with the Trump administration, we want to send a clear message that the DPRK has a reliable defensive and offensive capability to counter any aggression from the United States,” a North Korean official said, reports CNN.
White House chief of staff John Kelly told reporters last week that Americans should be concerned about the rogue regime.
“The American people should be concerned about a state that has developed a pretty good ICBM capability and is developing a pretty good nuclear re-entry vehicle,” he said. “I would believe, I think I speak for the administration, that that state simply cannot have the ability to reach the homeland.”
