OREANDA-NEWS. The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, responded to the warnings of North Korea’s “Christmas gift”, saying that US is able to face any surprise, including Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons tests.

“We’ll find out what the surprise is and we’ll deal with it very successfully,” Trump told reporters. “We’ll see what happens.” “Maybe it’s a nice present,” the politician added. “Maybe it’s a present where he sends me a beautiful vase as opposed to a missile test.”

In early December, North Korea accused the US authorities of delaying negotiations on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula till the 2020 presidential election. As North Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Ri Thae Song stated, Washington is being “keen on earning time,” instead of making concessions. According to the diplomat, “what is left to be done now is the U.S. option and it is entirely up to the U.S. what Christmas gift it will select to get.”
