US wants diplomatic end to North Korea crisis: MattisThe United States wants a diplomatic solution to the escalating nuclear crisis with North Korea, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Tuesday, toning down the shrill rhetoric between the two countries. “We maintain the capability to deter North Korea’s most dangerous threats but also to back up our diplomats in a manner that keeps this as long as possible in the diplomatic realm,” he said in New Delhi after talks with his Indian counterpart. “That is our goal, to solve this diplomatically, and I believe that President Trump has been very clear on this issue,” the US defence chief said.
