The relations between the two nuclear-armed countries, North Korea and the United States, is getting more and more militaristic with both sides sending open warnings of war. With the two sides getting verbally aggressive with each other, the US pulls in China calling upon Xi Jinping to be more aggressive in its retaliation to North Korea.
As tension regarding North Korea's missile tests ramps up in Washington, the reaction becomes all the more vitriolic and threatening. But despite the threats from the US, North Korea is unlikely to change its behaviour and attitude towards threatening issue of nuclear arms. Given this political setup, is there an impending war in the corner or is the current flow of passions on all sides temporary that will subside with time? What role will the international community play as tempers on both sides go high?
President Donald Trump on April 11, 2017, posted on his Facebook page and also tweeted that the US will "solve the North Korea problem" alone if China refuses to help. In his tweet, Trump categorically said, "North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! USA"
