‘It won’t happen’
Online Desk: President-elect Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to promise North Korea would not develop a nuclear missile capable of reaching US territory. His comments come a day after the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un, appeared to attempt to put pressure on Trump by announcing his country is in the ‘final stages’ of developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
“North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the US,” Trump tweeted last evening. “It won’t happen!” Although Washington has repeatedly vowed that it would never accept North Korea as a nuclear state, Trump has not previously clearly stated his policy on the isolated Stalinist state.
