Trump “cannot imagine Russia is pleased” with North Korea

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump “cannot imagine Russia is pleased” with North Korea’s latest missile test on Sunday, as it landed closer to Russia than to Japan, the White House said in a statement.

“With the missile impacting so close to Russian soil – in fact, closer to Russia than to Japan – the President cannot imagine that Russia is pleased,” the White House said in its  statement.

The launch served as a call for all nations to implement stronger sanctions against reclusive North Korea, the White House added.
