WASHINGTON (AFX) - US President George W. Bush vowed to use "all diplomatic efforts" possible to resolve the North Korean and Iranian nuclear standoffs before considering possible military action.
But in a White House press conference dominated by the twin crises over the North Korean and Iranian nuclear programs, Bush said the option of military action remained on the table.
"I believe the commander-in-chief must try all diplomatic efforts before we commit our military," Bush said when asked about his administration's failure to get either Pyongyang or Tehran to give up its nuclear program via negotiations.
