>> We will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.>> The morning after Donald Trump's eyebrow raising outburst at the United Nations, mixed reactions are spilling in from around the world. Starting in Asia, it was a broadly supportive tone from America's allies. South Korea backing Trump for what it calls a firm and specific stance on North Korea's nuclear weapons.
And there was more support from Tokyo.>> We hold in high regard President Trump's stance that all options are on the table. And we would like to continue our cooperation on security matters between Japan, the United States, and South Korea.>> But not everyone was a fan of how the Commander-In-Chief handled his moment in the spotlight.
>> Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself.>> A scathing editorial in Chinese state media says Trump's words were irresponsible. Accusing him of playing, quote, a risky game of chicken that could cross the point of no return. Then, as Europe began weighting in, French President Emmanuel Macron also made it clear that he doesn't share Trump's vision.
>> Any military intervention will lead to the kind of material and human destruction that I believe must be absolutely avoided. Despite Trump's strong words, Washington's official policy is still to pressure North Korea through sanctions. And though many might not agree with the President's message, what's clear is that there's a widespread call for peace on the Korean peninsula.
Still, there's no guarantee that message will be echoed by Pyongyang when North Korea takes the stand at the UN on Friday.
