Secretary Mattis issues warning to North Korea

NHK reported that Secretary of Defense Mattis issued another warning to North Korea by saying that there are “many military options” available to counter North Korea that would not necessarily create a grave risk of retaliation against Seoul. In addition, the Secretary reportedly told reporters on Monday that North Korea’s ballistic missiles are aimed for “the middle of the Pacific” and that the North Koreans are “intentionally doing provocations that seem to press against the envelope for just how far can they push without going over some kind of a line in their minds that would make them vulnerable.”
