WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, during a meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, agreed to deploy US strategic assets in South Korea as a way to counter the North Korean threat, the White House said in a press release.
"They also agreed to the enhanced deployment of US strategic assets in and around South Korea on a rotational basis," the release stated on Friday.
US President Donald Trump has recently signed a new executive order expanding sanctions against Pyongyang, threatened to "totally destroy North Korea" if immediate threats emerge and described Kim as "Rocket Man."
North Korea was quick to announce that it may conduct another hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific. Kim accused Trump of exhibiting "mentally deranged behavior" and threatened him with a harsh response.
