Trump says US has lost its patience with North Korea

Miffed by the continued missile tests of North Korea led by Kim Jong-Un, US President Donald Trump has revealed that Washington’s patience with Pyongyang is over.

Trump also called for stiffer sanctions to be imposed on North Korea to thwart Pyongyang’s continued nuclear and ballistic missile tests which has been criticised by world leaders.

During his remarks at the White House alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday, Trump vowed to “strengthen” the US-South Korea alliance.

“The era of strategic patience with the North Korean regime has failed,” said Trump. “Frankly, that patience is over.

“Our goal is peace, stability and prosperity for the region. But the United States will defend itself – always will defend itself. Always. And we will always defend our allies,” he said.

The President of South Korea also echoed Trump’s, promising a “stern response” to any further provocations when he said; “Our two leaders will employ both sanctions and dialogue in a phased and comprehensive approach.”

Reports say Pyongyang views American engagement on the Korean Peninsula – including the presence of 30,000 troops – as a signal Washington is preparing to reignite the 1950-53 Korean War.
