In the situation of tension between the US and North Korea, the Pentagon on Sunday urged the isolated Communist country to avoid the further destabilization of the situation.
"We urge North Korea to refrain from provocative, destabilizing actions and rhetoric and to make a strategic choice to meet its international obligations and return to serious negotiations," said Pentagon spokesman Harry Ross. "Illegal weapons programs of North Korea clearly constitutes a serious threat to US national security".
The statement followed a few hours after a North Korean newspaper reported that Pyongyang is ready to take out American aircraft carrier conducting exercises with the Japanese fighters close to the Philippines.
The official newspaper of the Central Committee of the DPRK government, Rodong Sinmun (Rodong Sinmun) stated in an editorial that the country was prepared to illustrate his "military force", destroying the "nuclear aircraft carrier with one blow." The newspaper claims that Pyongyang has a weapon that "can reach the US" and "the ultimate weapon" - the hydrogen bomb. In September last year, North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear weapons test and showed a series of rockets at a military parade in the important North Korean holiday.
President Donald trump has promised to curb the "threat" of the nuclear program of North Korea and talked with Chinese President XI Jinping on how to make China as one of the allies of North Korea, to put pressure on his neighbor, so he changed course.
The state Department said Sunday that he remains committed to the direct solution of the nuclear threat of North Korea. "Provocations from North Korea have become too common and too dangerous to ignore," - said the representative of the Department, referring to the country with the acronym of its official name, the Democratic people's Republic.
"With our allies and partners around the world we will show the DPRK that the only way to a safe, economically prosperous future is to abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programs," - said the representative of press-service.
"We seek no military conflict and not trying to threaten North Korea," - said the representative of press-service. "However, we will respond to threats to us or our allies accordingly. We remain ready to negotiate with the DPRK, but we need to see that North Korea will stop all their illegal activities and aggressive behavior in the region."
