“I think it’s increasing every day” McMaster told when asked if this week’s missile launch heightened the possibility of war with the U.S. When asked if this week’s missile launch heightened the possibility of war with the U.S. North Korean state media boasted that its successful test of the new type of missile, dubbed the Hwasong-15, is capable of delivering a “super-large heavy warhead” to the U.S. President Donald Trump remains committed to the complete de-nuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, McMaster said, adding that there were non-military ways to deal with the issue, such as calling on China to impose greater economic sanctions against Pyongyang.
“There are ways to address this problem short of armed conflict, but it is a race because he’s (Kim Jong-un) getting closer and closer, and there’s not much time left,” McMaster said.
Now the time to wait and see who will begin war. And when that time comes, the gold price may boost up to new high or not. Who knows?
