U.S. President Donald Trump said that nobody’s happy after North Korea raised the pressure over the future of their deadlocked nuclear negotiations by launching two short-range missiles.
While he noted that negotiations with Pyongyang were continuing, Trump also said, “I don’t think they’re ready to negotiate.”
Meeting with reporters at the White House, Trump was asked about the North Korean test launch that had taken place a few hours earlier. “They were smaller missiles – short-range missiles,” he noted. In what South Korea President Moon Jae-in termed an "element of protest", the North "fired what appeared to be two short-range missiles" on Thursday, Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said in a statement.
