Jimmy Carter Offers to Talk Peace With Kim Jong

Jimmy Carter Offers to Talk Peace With Kim Jong”

As long as the USA maintains its pressure on North Korea, it will not negotiate over its nuclear weapons arsenal, the Hermit Kingdom's foreign minister, Ri Yong-ho told Russia's TASS News Agency.

The USS Michigan nuclear-powered submarine enters the naval base of Busan, South Korea, on October 13, 2017.

"These are regular joint exercises to counteract any North Korean threat and improve the cooperation of our armed forces", South Korean Vice Admiral Jung Jin-seop, the country's naval operations commander, said in a statement released by the local Yonhap agency.

The North Korean state agency issued this comment on the same day that South Korean and USA naval forces announced they will conduct high-profile joint maneuvers in waters off the Korean peninsula next week to counter the growing threat of Pyongyang.

A nuclear-powered attack submarine also made a high-profile visit to a South Korean port.

Of all voters, 65 percent say the US should negotiate with North Korea diplomatically, while 29 percent say it's a waste of time.

An increasingly hostile relationship between the USA and North Korea has Americans considering a preemptive strike on the country-and many Republicans are all for it.

North Korea has stated that its leader, Kim Jong Un's hand is "closer to the trigger" to unleash a "salvo of missile" against the US territory of Guam.

The 10-day drill, which involves the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, is set to begin on Monday in waters east and west of South Korea. "The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to the 'trigger.'" While the US maintains the exercise, like previous ones, is defensive, North Korea sees it as practice for an invasion.

Tensions between the United States and North Korea are continuing to boil, as Kim Jong Un issues a new threat.

It comes after the US military flew two strategic bombers over the Korean Peninsula in a show of force late on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

It remains unclear whether North Korea will lash out with a weapons test during the exercise, as it often has in the past. Across both party lines, Americans say negotiating with the country is a "waste of time".
