McMaster: Military option is not preferred for North Korea

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s national security adviser says the U.S. has a military option for North Korea, but that is not its preferred route.

H.R. McMaster spoke about North Korea Friday during a White House briefing about the upcoming U.N. General Assembly meeting next week.

One former top Trump adviser has said the U.S. is bluffing when it threatens military force against North Korea.

McMaster says North Korea is on track to having a nuclear weapon that could threaten its neighbors and the United States. McMaster said the U.S. has “run out of road.”

McMaster says recently imposed U.N. sanctions on North Korea are just taking effect. He calls on all nations to enforce them and do everything they can to address the threat and prevent war.
