US President Donald Trump while reacting on North Korea’s missile tests said that recent missile tests were not a “breach of trust.”
“They’re short-range and I don’t consider that a breach of trust at all. And, you know, at some point I may. But at this point no,” he said in an interview with Politico. “These were short-range missiles and very standard stuff. Very standard.”
North Korea fired what appeared to be two short-range missiles on Thursday (May 9) in its second such test in less than a week, and the United States said it had seized a North Korean cargo ship as tensions again mounted between the two countries. Trump, who has said that he and Kim have a good relationship, added that he might eventually lose faith in the North Korean leader. “I mean it’s possible that at some point I will, but right now not at all,” he said.
Kim declared an end to the testing of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles during a rapid rapprochement last year, paving the way for his first summit with Trump in Singapore in June.
