North Korea says Trump has 'lit the wick of war'

This was stated by US Defense Secretary James Mattis at a military exhibition organized by the American Army Association, TASS reported.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un again defended Sunday's development of his "valuable" nuclear program, and keeps insisting that it is needed in order to address any United States threats, coinciding with Saturday's Trump statements that "only one thing will work" with Pyongyang.

At talks with the delegation, Ri Yong-ho spoke about the tense situation around North Korea due to the United States, and his country's readiness to counter any aggression.

The North Korean regime is also believed to have roughly 1,300 aircraft, 300 helicopters, 430 combatant vessels, 250 amphibious vessels, 70 submarines, 4,300 tanks, 2,500 armored vehicles and 5,500 multiple rocket launchers, according to the Council on Foreign Relations.

But Mattis added that the military would continue to prepare options should diplomacy fail.

Asked by a TASS reporter if dialogue between North Korea and the U.S. is possible, Ri said it is not.

While the president has repeatedly rejected the possibility of negotiations with North Korea, arguing that dialogue is a waste of time while emphasizing the military option, Tillerson and Mattis have been calling for a diplomatic solution supported by a military option.

North Korea has pursued its missile and nuclear programs in defiance of worldwide condemnation and sanctions. She said conversations with USA friends and allies indicated that such a campaign "is starting to have an effect, adding, "We're pleased with that".
