It has been an extraordinary week as tensions continue to escalate between the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
U.S. President Donald Trump has issued strong warnings to the DPRK over its nuclear program and missile testing. And, the DPRK has accused the U.S. of “driving” the Korean peninsula “to the brink of a nuclear war.”
Meanwhile China is urging both sides to use restraint.
