Trump Plays Down New Apparent North Korea Test, Open To Talks Still

WASHINGTON, Aug 1 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday performed down what appeared to be North Korea’s third missile start in just over week, saying these were short-range and “very standard” and wouldn’t normally affect his determination to negotiate with Pyongyang. South Korea’s army said unidentified short-range projectiles were fired at 2:59 a.m.

3:23 a.m. local time on Friday from North Korea’s South Hamgyong Province into the East Sea. A U.S. formal said U.S. THE UNITED STATES. U.S. officials said initial information indicated the experience was much like two other short-range missile studies by Pyongyang before eight times. Asked at the White House before leaving for a marketing campaign visit to Ohio if he thought Kim was tests him, Trump said the launches didn’t violate the North Korean leader’s claims to him.

They were “short-range missiles,” Trump said. South Korea’s Yonhap information company quoted the country’s joint chiefs of personnel as stating. Japan’s Ministry of Defence said on Friday no immediate impact was seen on the country’s security following the new North Korean launch. Earlier on Thursday, U.S. John Bolton informed Fox Business Network that the launches since last week did not violate Kim’s pledge never to test long-range missiles or nuclear bombs. A summit between Trump and Kim in Vietnam in February collapsed following the two sides didn’t reconcile differences between U.S. North Korea’s complete denuclearization and North Korean demands for sanctions alleviation.
