Adviser White house national security Herbert McMaster said that the administration of President Donald trump is considering a military option for responding to a nuclear threat from North Korea. He stated this during a briefing, reports Reuters.

“For those who spoke and made comments about the lack of a military option, a military option exists,” said McMaster.

He noted that after the last rocket launch on Friday, the United States quickly run out of patience in relation to missile and nuclear programs in North Korea.

However, the official stressed that the White house prefers the sanctions pressure on North Korea. And thus, military action is not the fact that the US “would prefer to do.”

In turn, the U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley also issued a statement, saying that the UN has virtually exhausted all options for a peaceful resolution of the North Korea issue.

“We see that they continue to be provocative, they continue to be reckless,” she said, adding that the head of the U.S. Department of defense James Mattis have a whole set of options in this regard.

Yesterday, 15 September, North Korea launched another missile unidentified type from Pyongyang, which flew over Japanese territory and fell into the Pacific ocean near the island of Hokkaido.

The North Korean authorities published yesterday, September 14, a statement which has threatened nuclear attacks on the United States and Japan, noting that Japan no longer needed and demanded “to disband the useless UN security Council” because of the tightening sanctions.

On 12 September the UN security Council voted unanimously for new sanctions against North Korea after the sixth and largest nuclear test of Pyongyang. In response to the sanctions, Pyongyang not only refused the development of nuclear-missile program, but also promised to speed it up.

Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia said that will insist on the consideration by the UN security Council’s methods of political influence on the DPRK, proposed by Russia and China opposing sanctions.
