The U.S. president made clear what he thinks of the North Korean practices with words in which he dedicated reviews of all kinds: “It is important that we know have been trying to launch rockets like this for a decade and  not seems to be really good at it, “ he said after arriving in Colombia, where he attends the Summit of the Americas held in Cartagena these days.

According to Obama,  the pressure will continue , and isolation “until they take a different path.” The U.S. president has also that the North Korean regime spent millions of dollars on rockets “that do not work”  while the population  of the country ” starving “.
