USA: ‘We've not declared war on North Korea’ — White House press sec.

Journalist: «North Korea's foreign minister said that President Trump has declared war on North Korea and that it reserves the right to take counter measures including shooting down US aircraft. Does the White House view President Trump's comments at the UN as a declaration of war?» Sarah Huckabee Sanders: «Not at all, we've not declared war on North Korea and frankly the suggestion of that is... Еще absurd.» Journalist: «What is the White House's reaction to North Korea's threat to shoot down US aircraft even if it's not in their airspace?» Sarah Huckabee Sanders: «It's never appropriate for a country to shoot down another country's aircraft when it's over international waters. Our goal is still the same, we continue to seek the peaceful denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, that's our focus, doing that through both the most maximum economic and diplomatic pressures as possible, at this point.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* Journalist: «Today Iraqi Kurds are voting on a plebiscite and I was just wondering- you've already expressed your kind of dissatisfaction with that vote taking place, but I was wondering whether the White House has a message for the Turks, the Iranians, the Iraqis as they weigh their response to this vote- and then I have a second question.» Sarah Huckabee Sanders: «We hope for a unified Iraq, to annihilate ISIS, and certainly a unified Iraq to push back on Iran.» Journalist: «Okay, second question- why is Saudi Arabia not included in the list of countries under the travel ban?» Sarah Huckabee Sanders: «Because the way that the travel order has been placed is that countries have to meet a minimum baseline requirement and also be part of sharing information. Over this last period of time, they've stepped up and met those baseline requirements that the United States has laid out.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said “we've not declared war on North Korea and frankly the suggestion of that is absurd,” in a press conference at the White House, Monday. She was responding to a question from a journalist relating to North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong-ho saying that US President Donald Trump had “declared war on North Korea,” adding that Pyongyang was within its rights to shoot down US bombers even if they were in international airspace. “It's never appropriate for a country to shoot down another country's aircraft when it's over international waters. Our goal is still the same, we continue to seek the peaceful denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula,” Sanders said. Talking about the Kurdish independence referendum taking place on Monday, she said “We hope for a unified Iraq to annihilate ISIS and certainly a unified Iraq to push back on Iran.”
