He said that it is their task to provide appropriate Intelligence information to the President of United States.Pompeo further said that the use of force against North Korea could lead to a devastating loss of life in the region, which is home to two key US allies, Japan and South Korea.
They are seriously concerned of those consequences, he said, and said that “many things were possible” when it comes to removing Kim or otherwise limiting his ability to launch a nuclear weapon at the US.President Donald Trump has overlooked advancing his steps towards Pyongyang in his first year in office, which has included personal barbs exchanged between the two men. Trump has promised ‘fire and fury’ if North Korea is not ready to take a back. Whereas, Kim called the American President “a rogue” and a “dotard” in an unprecedented letter signed by the North Korean leader himself.Pompeo says that Trump’s North Korea language — delivered frequently on Twitter — is not landing on deaf ears in Pyongyang. “When you see this language that the President chooses to use, there are many audiences for it… and I assure you Kim Jong-un understands the message that America is serious,” he said.In various intervals, North Korea has conducted several missile tests that have worried the West and increased tensions. The country tested at least 20 ballistic missiles in 2017, including at least three intercontinental ballistic missile tests.
