WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Monday amid intensifying tensions with North Korea.
The call comes as the U.N. Security Council is holding its second emergency meeting in a week about North Korea after the country said it detonated a hydrogen bomb underground Sunday.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Sunday said the U.S. will answer any threat from the North with a “massive military response.”
Trump has also threatened to halt all trade with countries doing business with the North, a veiled warning to China. He also faulted South Korea for its “talk of appeasement.”
