The US President described Kim Jong-un’s hermit state as a “global threat” and called on nations, including Poland, to help the US confront it.
Speaking alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda, he said: “We must confront the threat from North Korea, that’s what it is it’s a threat, and we will confront it very strongly.
“President Duda and I call on all nations to confront this global threat and publicly demonstrate to North Korea that there are consequences for their very, very bad behaviour.”
When quizzed over whether he would respond with military action, President Donald Trump said: “I don’t know what will happen. I dont like to talk about my plans.
“There are severe things that we are thinking about, but it doesn’t mean we are going to do them. I dont draw red lines, we will take a look at what happens over the coming weeks and months.
“It is a shame they are behaving this way. They are behaving in a dangerous manner and something will have to be done about it.”
The US President also spoke out against Vladimir Putin’s Russia in a shock admission, saying the US would support Poland against “Russia’s destabilising behaviour”.
He went on to hail Poland as a “close ally” and “we have never been as close to Poland than right now”.
