Biden warns North Korea on missile launches

US President Joe Biden  has warned that there would be “responses” if North Korea continues to fire ballistic missiles  , following their second launch in less than a week.

Asked about the launches at his first formal news conference, Mr Biden said: “We’re consulting with our allies and partners and there will be responses if they choose to escalate. We will respond accordingly.”

The President also said that he agreed with then-President Barack Obama who warned in 2016 while leaving office that North Korea is the biggest foreign policy threat and issue, answering simply: “Yes.”
