US Defense Secretary James Mattis warned Pyongyang against aggression against the United States or its allies, saying it would trigger a unified world response and what he termed the “total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea,” LA Times reports.
Speaking outside the White House after President Trump met with his top national security advisors, Mattis asserted that the U.S. has “many” military options, and that the president had been briefed on them.
He addressed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in tart terms a day after Kim's government conducted what it claimed was its first hydrogen bomb test, a nuclear device far more destructive than those used against Japan at the end of World War II.
North Korea has notched up several significant weapons advances this summer.
