Merkel: Escalation of rhetoric on North Korea is wrong answer

Source: The Hill

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned on Friday against "the escalation of rhetoric" in the wake of rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, adding that she didn't see a military solution to the issue.

"I believe that, am firmly convinced that an escalation of rhetoric will not contribute to a solution of this conflict," Merkel said when she was asked about President Trump's recent statements on the issue.

"I do not see a military solution to this conflict, rather I see continuous work, like we have seen in the U.N. Security Council with members with resolutions in view of North Korea, and above all very close cooperation with affected countries, especially the United States and China, but also South Korea, of course Japan," she continued.

"Germany will be intensively involved with potential solutions that we see, not of a military manner. But the escalation of rhetoric I hold as the wrong answer," she said.
