President Trump on Sunday said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has “everything” to lose by acting aggressively after Pyongyang conducted a “very important test” at a missile site that supposedly had been shuttered.
“Kim Jong Un is too smart and has far too much to lose, everything actually, if he acts in a hostile way. He signed a strong Denuclearization Agreement with me in Singapore,” the president wrote on Twitter.
“He does not want to void his special relationship with the President of the United States or interfere with the U.S. Presidential Election in November. North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, has tremendous economic potential, but it must denuclearize as promised. NATO, China, Russia, Japan, and the entire world is unified on this issue! ,” the president said.
Trump’s posting comes as North Korean state media reported on Sunday that Kim’s regime carried out a test at the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground on Saturday.
Kim had pledged to close the facility after the Singapore summit with Trump in June 2018 but reports said in March that it was being rebuilt.
“The results of the recent important test will have an important effect on changing the strategic position of the DPRK once again in the near future,” state media reported, referring to North Korea’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
