James Mattis said that military solution to the situation with North Korea will be a huge tragedy.

The Minister of defence of the USA James Mattis said at a press conference at the Pentagon that a military solution to the problem of North Korea would be a tragedy, therefore, the United States committed to finding a diplomatic solution to this problem.
