France: North Korea could nuke U.S., Europe within monthsStaff Writer | September 1, 2017
France's foreign minister warned that North Korea could have the capacity to deliver a nuclear strike on the United States and even Europe "within months".
Defense "In a few months, that will be a reality"
"We see a North Korea whose objective is to have missiles capable of transporting a nuclear weapon tomorrow," Le Drian told RTL radio.
"In a few months, that will be a reality. At that moment, when it has the capability to hit the US, even Europe and at the very least Japan and China, with a nuclear weapon, the situation will be explosive."
Early on Tuesday, North Korea fired an intermediate-range Hwasong-12 over Japan, prompting US President Donald Trump to say that "all options" were on the table in an implied threat of pre-emptive military action. ■
