After Kim Jong Un’s failed nuclear test and, Trump sent an ‘armada’ to northern Australia to position themselves strongly against North Korea and act as a warning.

A Pentagon spokesman said:

We call on North Korea to refrain from provocative, destabilising actions and rhetoric, and to make strategic choice to fulfil its international obligations and commitments and return to serious talks.

North Korea’s unlawful weapons programs represent a clear, grave threat to US national security.
