US President Donald Trump praised North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un’s ‘very wise decision’ not to attack Guam.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Trump addressed North Korea’s supreme leader’s apparent decision to pull back on his earlier threat to test fire ballistic missiles off the coast of the US Pacific territory of Guam.
On Monday, North Korea’s state news agency KCNA reported that Kim Jong-un had been briefed on a missile test next to the US Pacific territory of Guam. A photograph showing Kim during the briefing was soon released by KCNA.
Around that time, US surveillance satellites allegedly detected a movement of the North Korean missile launcher.
The following day, however, the North Korean leader expressed hope the United States undertakes the right decision to diminish tensions on the Korean peninsula.
