Ever since President Donald Trump took office last January, tensions on the Korean Peninsula have escalated dramatically. So much so, that one former top defense official believes the United States is the closest it’s ever been to a nuclear war in the region.

“We’re actually closer, in my view, to a nuclear war with North Korea and in that region than we’ve ever been,” former chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen said on ABC on Sunday. “I don’t see the opportunities how to solve this diplomatically at this particular point.”

(前統合参謀本部議長マイク・マッレン海軍大将は日曜日にABCに「実際かつて無い程北朝鮮とその地域で核戦争に近ずいたと私は見ている。この特殊な状況下で外交的にこれを解決する機会は見えない」と語った。

He added, “And in particular, that the peninsula in North Korea and will he follow through on his rhetoric? Or will we actually be able to get to a situation where it could be solved peacefully?”

「そして、特に北朝鮮の半島で、彼は自分の言ったこと(「完全に破壊する」)を実行するのか?」と加えた。

Mullen also expressed that China was “the key” and questioned if the nation would “really force the resolution of the issue.”

Adm. Mullen: “President Trump had made China move more than they have in the past” on North Korea. “Whether they will continue to do that, to help resolve this, is the open question.” http://abcn.ws/2CubAw8
