Trump warns Kim he will lose everything if he takes hostile action

Washington, Dec 8 (efe-epa).- President Donald Trump warned North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Sunday that the latter will lose "everything" if he acts in a "hostile" manner, a statement that comes shortly after Pyongyang announced that it had carried out a test linked to its ballistic missile program.

Washington, Dec 8 (efe-epa).- President Donald Trump warned North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Sunday that the latter will lose "everything" if he acts in a "hostile" manner, a statement that comes shortly after Pyongyang announced that it had carried out a test linked to its ballistic missile program.

"Kim Jong Un is too smart and has far too much to lose, everything actually, if he acts in a hostile way," said Trump on Twitter.

"He signed a strong Denuclearization Agreement with me in Singapore," Trump continued, referring to the joint declaration in which Trump and Kim promised to work toward the full denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, adding that "He does not want to void his special relationship with the President of the United States or interfere ... with the U.S. Presidential Election in November," in which Trump is running for re-election.

"North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, has tremendous economic potential, but it must denuclearize as promised. NATO, China, Russia, Japan, and the entire world is unified on this issue!" the president concluded.

On other occasions, in response to North Korea's provocations, Trump has used the same strategy: praising Kim personally, calling him "smart" as he did in his Sunday tweet, and promoting the relationship between the two countries while at the same time downplaying the importance of Pyongyang's missile tests.

The test announced by North Korea on Sunday came at its satellite launch facility at Sohae, in northwestern North Korea, and was linked to the country's missile program, according to a brief statement released by the "hermit kingdom's" state-run KCNA news agency.

The test came after North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations, Kim Song, said on Saturday that his country has removed denuclearization from the agenda of the negotiations with Washington, a move that sows additional uncertainty about the viability of the bilateral dialogue, which has already been stalled for months.

Kim Song expressed Pyongyang's frustration with the talks in a communique in which he said that Washington is using the dialogue as a "time-saving trick" designed to favor the nation's domestic political agenda.

From the White House on Saturday, Trump downplayed the importance of the North Korean announcement and said that he would be surprised if Pyongyang acted in an aggressive manner.

North Korea and the US experienced a high point in their bilateral relations last year, but they are now going through a phase of renewed friction, and in recent days they have once again ratcheted up their mutual verbal belligerence.
