Sir Lawrence Freedman said “robust and tough” language from both the United States and North Korea chiefs could turn into something serious if left unchecked.

North Korea’s foreign minister has accused Donald Trump of lighting “the wick of war” with his repeated insults and threats amid growing World War 3 fears.

Sir Freedman, emeritus professor of War Studies at King’s College London, said there was a “big question” on whether “further conflict” could occur between Russia and Europe.

He added China’s rapid growth was also an issue.

Speaking on the Today programme, on BBC Radio 4, Sir Freedman said: “You can argue that the rhetoric is improving deterrent because it makes people realise why they need to be worried.

“But at the same time the rhetoric may get out of hand in which case then you’re in danger of what you think is sounding robust and tough turning into something really quite dangerous.

“There’s a big question about whether in Europe further conflict could develop with Russia or I think probably more seriously how the rise of China is managed in the Asia-Pacific region especially if the United States becomes less able and less inclined to sure up its alliances in the region.”

Ri Yong Ho, Pyongyang’s foreign minister, hit out at the US President and said the tensions will not be settled with words.
