The Minister of defence of the USA James Mattis urged American military commanders to “be prepared” to ensure a military solution to the problem of North Korea in case if diplomatic efforts fail. The head of the Pentagon said after a speech at the annual Congress of the Association of the U.S. army in Washington, reports Politico.
According to Mattis, now the United States is trying to influence Pyongyang through diplomacy with economic sanctions, but no one can say, “what awaits us in the future.”
“So there is one thing that can make the US army, and we must be ready to provide the military means that our President (Donald trump) can use if necessary”, – said the head of the defense Ministry.
