Trump comfortable with Japan, North Korea having nuclear weapon
Washington: The Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump seems to be comfortable with Japan and South Korea developing their own nuclear weapons capabilities to defend themselves rather than United States protecting them.
"Can I be honest, are you? Maybe it's going to have to be time to change, you have, Pakistan has it, you have China has it. You have so many other countries that are now having it (nuclear weapons)..," said Trump.
The Presidential candidate was attending a Nuclear Security Summit when it was pointed to him that it has been a US policy for decades to prevent Japan from getting a nuclear weapon, to which he replied that it is time to change as many countries are now capable of defending themselves rather depending on US to protect them.
He, however, clarified that he was against the spread of nuclear weapon and does not support nuclear proliferation.
