Danang (Vietnam): US President Donald Trump today said the Asia-Pacific region should not have to live with the nuclear ambitions of North Korea's leader Kim Jong- Un, describing them as "twisted fantasies".

"The future of this region and its beautiful people must not be held hostage to a dictator's twisted fantasies of violent conquest and nuclear blackmail," he said during a speech in Vietnam to the annual Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.
