The US State Department has stated that the international campaign to pressure North Korea into abandoning its nuclear and ballistic missiles program is working, in spite of the rogue regime’s testing of a hydrogen bomb and the firing of a missile over Japan in recent days.

Heather Nauert, a spokeswoman for the State Department, has reassured reporters that the pressure on North Korea was having an effect. Nauert stated:

“Now when you see a test that took place on Sunday, you may think, ‘Goodness, that is not working.’ But that is not the case, and here’s why. It can take a long time for a pressure campaign to work. It is not an overnight thing, it’s not a big, sexy military option. This is handled very, very differently. “

Nauert continued:

“We will continue to push forward with this campaign. We are having success. This all will take time.”

President Trump has stressed that all options are on the table in dealing with North Korea.  However, the President has stated that a military strike on the rogue communist state would be a “very sad day for North Korea.” The President stated at a press conference with the emir of Kuwait:

“We would have to look at all of the details, all of the facts, but we’ve had presidents for 25 years now, they’ve been talking, talking, talking, and the day after an agreement is reached, new work begins in North Korea, continuation on nuclear. I’m not negotiating with you. Maybe we’ll have a  chance to negotiate with somebody else, but I don’t put my negotiations on the table, unlike past administrations. I don’t talk about them. But I can tell you that North Korea’s behaving badly, and  it’s got to stop.”
