Washington “concerned” about North Korea’s missile tests: Esper

Though the U.S. will not overreact, new defense secretary adds

Washington's new Defence Secretary Mark Esper on Wednesday said North Korea's recent missile tests are a concern, though added that the U.S. would not overreact to launches.

Speaking at a Department of Defense press conference with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, Esper said that a political agreement is the "best" way to achieve the DPRK's denuclearization.
