North Korea to Possibly be Nuke-Free Soon? Trump and China Discuss the Matter

Should North Korea be nuke-free? I think we can all nod our heads in a agreement. Heck yeah they should be free of nuclear bombs.

See, it’s not just North Korea we have to be concerned about having bombs. While they are obviously unstable, we would also have to deal with the countries around them who will want nuclear bombs as well.

President Donald Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday and they both agreed: North Korea should not have nuclear weapons

Fox News reports:

“At present, the relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula,” Xi was quoted as saying.

The White House confirmed early Saturday that Trump and Xi spoke Friday.

“The leaders affirmed that the recent adoption of a new United Nations Security Council resolution regarding North Korea was an important and necessary step toward achieving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula,” the White House statement said. “President Trump and President Xi agreed North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behavior.

“The Presidents also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”

The statement added that Trump was looking forward to meeting with Xi in China later this year.

The trip, announced in April, was recently confirmed by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who met in Manila with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Trump has urged China to pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear weapons program, which North Korea says is nearing the capability of targeting the United States.

China is the North’s biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can’t compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs.

Trump also spoke with Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo, reassuring him that U.S. military forces stand ready to ensure the safety and security of the U.S. territory, a White House statement said.

 

What do you think? Should we take all of their nuclear weapons away? I say yes!
