Trump has lit fuse of war’


Moscow:  US President Donald Trump “lit the fuse of war” against North Korea with his provocative comments to the United Nations last month, North Korea’s foreign minister has told the Russian TASS news agency. Trump has engaged in an escalating war of words with North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un, trading insults amid rising tensions between the two nuclear-armed rivals. “With his belligerent and mad address to the UN, it can be said that Trump has lit the fuse of war against us,” Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told Russia’s state news agency during an interview in Pyongyang.
