German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Friday that she sees no military solution to the North Korea crisis and that escalating rhetoric is the "wrong answer," after President Donald Trump said the U.S. military was "locked and loaded."
"An escalation of the language is for me the wrong response," the chancellor said following the war of words between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea, which has dramatically raised the stakes in the conflict over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.
"I also don't see a military solution (to the conflict) and do not consider it necessary," Merkel told a news conference in Berlin.
Instead, Merkel called for all sides to the crisis, including the United States, South Korea and Japan to work closely together with the United Nations.
