Defense Secretary James Mattis is stressing the importance of diplomacy when it comes to North Korea, just one day after south Korea’s top diplomat called a military solution unacceptable. Mattis made the comments Friday in Hawaii, during talks with his South Korean counterpart. The Defense Secretary reportedly said diplomacy would impose reason on the reckless rhetoric and dangerous provocations of North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. He added, diplomacy can only be successful if backed by military options, to ensure diplomats are speaking from a position of strength. The Trump administration has repeatedly said all options are on the table when dealing with the rogue state.
