In response to comments by US President Donald Trump, North Korea has warned that if the United States used military force against Pyongyang it would take prompt action. Trump on Tuesday indicated that military action was still possible when he asked about North Korea on the sidelines of a NATO summit in Britain.

Responding to Trump's statement yesterday, Pak Jong Chon, chief of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army said he was  disappointed by his comments. According to the official KCNA news agency, Chon also said the use of armed forces is not the privilege of the US only. He added that if the US uses any armed forces against the North Korea, they will also take prompt corresponding actions at any level.

Denuclearisation negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington have been deadlocked since a summit in Hanoi broke up in February. The renewed threats come as a deadline set by Pyongyang for fresh concessions approaches.
