NORTH KOREA could be set to face a naval blockade that would stop its supply of oil and machinery and destroy Kim Jong-un’s nuclear ambitions, war veteran Michael Waltz has said.

Kim Jong-un warned there is a “nuclear button” on his desk as he threatened the US during his New Year’s speech in Pyongyang.

Donald Trump has pledged to “take care” of Kim Jong-un’s ruthless regime but has not yet succeeded.

Mr Waltz said President Trump must consider “every option” as the US prepares to fight back Kim Jong-un’s nuclear threats.

War veteran and author Michael Waltz told Fox News: “At the end of the day, I think I would like to see us try a blockade before we go to the final military option.

“But we do risk also a slow escalation at sea and we could risk losing the benefit of surprise by a precision strike on the nuclear programme and on the leadership.”

A naval blockade on North Korea would stop the inflow of oil, machinery and raw materials that could benefit the rogue nation’s nuclear regime.

North Korea state media outlet KCNA responded to the claims and said: “Should the US and its followers try to enforce a naval blockade against our country, we will see it as an act of war and respond with merciless self-defensive counter-measures as we have warned repeatedly.”

Mr Waltz said the naval blockade must be part of an overall strategy to bring down North Korea. But he said China is the key to stopping its plans for a fully-fledged nuclear missiles programme.
