WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The North Korean foreign minister’s statement that the United States has declared war on Pyongyang is “absurd,” the White House said on Monday.

“We’ve not declared war on North Korea. Frankly, the suggestion of that is absurd,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters.
