Hillary Clinton says United States threats of war with North Korea 'dangerous, short-sighted'

Hillary Clinton says United States threats of war with North Korea 'dangerous, short-sighted'

Ms Clinton, a former U.S. secretary of state, said Washington's allies have increasingly been expressing concern over the reliability of the United States, advising Washington to avoid becoming distracted with North Korean threats and be "as forcefully patient" as possible. She also asserted that diplomatic pressure must be applied upon Pyongyang in order to bring the isolated country to the negotiation table as the threats to start war are "dangerous and short-sighted".

As long as one does not take part in the USA military actions against the DPRK (North Korea), we have no intention to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against any other country.

North Korea's deputy United Nations ambassador called his country's nuclear and missile arsenal "a precious strategic asset that can not be reversed or bartered for anything".

It comes as Kim Jong-un said he would never negotiate with Donald Trump's Government. The two diplomats will join their South Korean counterpart in Seoul for further talks Wednesday on North Korea.




It's been almost a quarter century of the same diplomatic policies under three different presidential administrations with very few results other than passing off the North Korea nuclear problem to their successor.

Mrs. Clinton also indirectly referred to Mr. Trump's social media comments on North Korea, saying, "the insults on Twitter have benefited North Korea, I don't think they've benefited the United States".

Clinton said retaliatory actions by China over the deployment of a U.S. anti-missile system in South Korea would be unnecessary had Beijing done a better job reining in North Korea.

He added: "Right now the leadership of North Korea have deployed missiles aimed at the United States and are doing these provocations, but they desperately want relations with the United States".
