German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that she opposed any use of force to resolve the conflict with North Korea, after President Donald Trump said the US Military was “Locked and Loaded”.

Merkel told reporters that she doesn’t envision a military solution to this conflict but rather consistent work as we have observed at the United Nations Security Council.

Answering a question regarding Trump’s latest tweets on North Korea she said that Germany will very intensively take part in the options for resolution that are not military but i consider a verbal escalation to be the wrong response.
