South Korea and the United States on Saturday kicked off a joint naval exercise in the Sea of Japan involving three USA aircraft carriers amid heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
In a visit to Missouri Southern State University on Friday, South Korean Jong-Kook Lee, consul general of the Republic of Korea in Chicago, called the threat of nuclear conflict and heightening tensions with North Korea and the United States "regrettable", but "reality".
His visit to Joplin came as President Donald Trump is continuing his tough talk against North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
It is the first such triple-carrier drill in the region for a decade.
North Korea has conducted dozens of ballistic missile tests in defiance of United Nations sanctions.
This isn't the first time Trump and Kim have traded barbs.
"I think from the USA point of view, Korea will continue to be a key part for peace and stability, and we have similar interests in east Asia", he said.
"Together we have in our power to finally liberate this region and the world from this very serious nuclear menace, but it will require collective action, collective strength and collective devotion to winning the peace", Trump said.
"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?' Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"
During his trip to Asia, Trump attempted a symbolic stare-down of Kim this week at the heavily fortified border that separates North and South Korea.
The president appeared to be responding to a statement from North Korea's foreign ministry Saturday, which warned that, "Reckless remarks by an old lunatic like Trump will never scare us or stop our advance".
Earlier, Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Trump reiterated firm commitment to achieving denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and working towards a solution through dialogue and negotiation.
Currently, he is in Vietnam where he took part in Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit.
Beijing fears that squeezing Pyongyang too hard could cause the regime to collapse, sending an influx of refugees across its border and placing the U.S. army at its doorstep.
