Or, as U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu wrote on Twitter: “The inconsistent messages being sent by [the Trump] administration on North Korea show confusion, not strength.”
For its part, China warned Friday that the situation with North Korea is “under very grave tension and at a critical point,” with diplomacy as the only way to diffuse such tensions.
“A peaceful settlement of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and negotiations represents the only right choice that is practical and viable,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters on Friday.
Meanwhile, diplomacy also appears to be the approach favored by the majority of South Koreans. According to a poll by the Korea Society Opinion Institute released Wednesday, nearly seven in 10 respondents want the next government (the country is holding an election May 9) to resume exchanges with Pyongyang in the interest of peaceful inter-Korean relations.
Earlier this week, a letter from 40 women leaders to Trump demanded he take steps to avert nuclear war—including by initiating a peace process with North Korea, South Korea, and China.
