Mattis: U.S. Wants Diplomatic Solution With North Korea
Secretary of Defense James Mattis said Thursday that the United States wants a diplomatic solution to its ongoing tension with North Korea.
Mattis told reporters in Mountain View, Calif., that the American effort is focused on diplomacy, the Associated Press reports. However, he said, he is responsible for having military options.
He also pointed out that the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously last week to sanction North Korea, and label its bellicose statements a “threat to the world’s community.”
