WASHINGTON, March 30 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagel on March 28 already replied to Pyongyang's bellicose rhetoric and will not give another response, at least immediately, a duty officer of the Pentagon press service told Itar-Tass, when asked to comment on the North Korean statement on its "state of war" with South Korea. At the end of the working day on Good Friday before Easter Sunday, he was not inclined to deal with such questions.
Hagel on Thursday said the United States must seriously take every provocative bellicose word and deed from the North Korean new young leader. A certain historical trajectory is seen here, into which North Korea periodically goes out to try to attract attention of the United States and try to bring it to some positions advantageous for them, for more aid or bilateral cooperation, the Pentagon chief noted. The fact is that it is a wrong approach and the actions they take and the words they use are not projected on the picture of more responsible relations, he added.
