US President Donald Trump has hit North Korea for its habits.

“North Korea is behaving very badly. They have been “playing” the United States for years. China has performed little to assist!” he stated in a tweet on March 17.

Meanwhile, an NBC News article printed on-line on March 17 reported US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as warning in a press convention in South Korea, “If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level that we believe requires action then that option is on the table.”

“Certainly we do not want for things to get to a military conflict,” he stated.

“But obviously if North Korea takes actions that threaten the South Korean forces or our own forces then that would be met with an appropriate response,” Tillerson stated.

North Korea earlier launched 4 missiles, drawing detrimental reactions from its neighboring international locations.
