intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).In an earlier tweet, Trump called
the words and actions of the DPRK “very hostile and dangerous” to the
United States.Trump also said he will be meeting with White House Chief of
Staff John Kelly, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and other military
leaders at the White House to discuss the DPRK issue.Chinese Foreign
Ministry issued a statement on Sunday, expressing firm opposition to and
strong condemnation of the nuclear test by the DPRK.”The DPRK has ignored
the international community’s widespread opposition and conducted a nuclear
test again. The Chinese government expresses resolute objection to and
strong condemnation of it,” the ministry’s statement said. – XINHUA
