War would be horrific, United States general tells Trump on North Korea response

18 Août, 2017, 06:21 | Author: Marc Bacque

Moon, in a televised speech Tuesday on the anniversary of the end of World War II and the Korean Peninsula's liberation from Japanese colonial rule, said that Seoul and Washington agree that the crisis over the North's nuclear program should "absolutely be solved peacefully", and that no US military action on the Korean Peninsula could be taken without Seoul's consent.

Joseph Dunford, the Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Thursday there was absolutely and unambiguously no place for bigotry in the United States military.

Gen Dunford said President Donald Trump "has told us to develop credible, viable military options, and that's exactly what we're doing".

August 15, 2017 (EIRNS)-Though the crisis surrounding North Korea is high on the agenda, Gen. Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also discussed the U.S.

"What's unimaginable to me is not a military option", Gen Dunford told reporters before a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"There's no military solution, forget it", Bannon told The American Prospect.

Despite those, China deeply resents the presence of the U.S. Navy in the South China Sea, which Beijing claims virtually in its entirety.

Gen Dunford was responding to questions about Mr Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon saying in a new interview that the threat posed by North Korea can not be handled by force.

Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made the remarks at the opening of a meeting with Fang Fenghui, chief of the People's Liberation Army's joint staff department.

Tuesday's signing of the Joint Strategic Dialogue Mechanism opens the door for building trust and understanding between the two militaries, "but it will only be useful if it results in meaningful dialogue that reduces the risk of miscalculation - which is especially critical now due to growing North Korea provocations", a senior USA defense official told VOA on Tuesday.

The Chinese Defense Ministry denounced the operation as a "provocation" and said it was "firmly opposed to such flaunting of force and promotion of militarization in the region by the USA, which could easily trigger accidents at sea and in the air".

"The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!"

U.S. -Chinese communications are especially crucial as "the region and world are facing the dangers of a nuclear-armed North Korea", according to a Joint Staff press release.

The U.S. embassy also has immediate access to China's General Staff, he added.

"I know we share one thing: We share a commitment to work through these hard issues", he added, saying that with the guidance of political leaders "we are going to make some progress over the next few days".

In Seoul, South Korean President Moon Jae-in vowed yesterday "there will be no war" on the peninsula.

The U.S. has expressed concerns about a lack of transparency in China military spending and what the United States calls unsafe intercepts of U.S. aircraft by the Chinese air force.

North Korea has repeatedly tested intercontinental ballistic missiles in recent months, some of which could reach parts of the U.S.
