Pelosi: Must 'exhaust' diplomatic options on North Korea

Posted November 5, 2017 9:12 a.m. EST

— The US must attempt to resolve its hostilities with North Korea using every possible diplomatic avenue before considering military action, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

"We have to exhaust every other remedy," Pelosi said.

Pelosi's comments came after the Pentagon sent a letter to lawmakers late last month saying the only way to destroy all of North Korea's nuclear weapons "with complete certainty" would be to conduct a ground invasion of the country.
