Merkel 'does not see a military solution' to US-North Korea conflict

<p>German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday (August 11) that she believes there is is no military solution to the United States’ dispute with North Korea.</p> <p>“I don’t see a military solution to this conflict,” she said in Berlin. </p> <p>The chancellor added that she thought that the war of words between the two leaders was the wrong approach.</p> <p>“I see the need for enduring work at the U.N. Security Council … and above all tight cooperation with the countries involved, especially the U.S. and China.”</p> <p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">[Watch] Angela Merkel on US-<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NorthKorea?src=hash">#NorthKorea</a> conflict: “escalation of rhetoric is the wrong answer” <a href="https://t.co/wWHqCx7uID">https://t.co/wWHqCx7uID</a> <a href="https://t.co/wR99nWPaZi">pic.twitter.com/wR99nWPaZi</a></p>— euronews (@euronews) <a href="https://twitter.com/euronews/status/896000427254099971">August 11, 2017</a></blockquote><br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p>
