N Korea missile tests no threat to US: Trump

Washington, Jul 27 (AFP) | Publish Date: 7/27/2019 11:55:28 AM IST

President Donald Trump has brushed off the bellicose language accompanying North Korea’s latest short-range missile test, saying it referred to ally South Korea, not the United States. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called two missiles fired Thursday under his personal supervision a “solemn warning” to the South over planned military drills with US.

Trump, who has invested heavily in a relationship with Kim was unconcerned. “He didn’t send a warning to the United States,” the president told reporters. 

“They have their disputes, the two of them have their disputes,” he said of North and South Korea, which fought a 1950-1953 war in which US troops took a major part. Trump noted that the missiles were short-range, calling them “very standard.” 

Although they could not have reached anywhere near the United States, the missiles’ range would easily include ally South Korea and large US military bases near the border. “My relationship with very Kim is very good. We’ll see what happens,” Trump said.
