Defense Secretary James Mattis has said the U.S. military supports the White House’s stance on potential methods to address nuclear and missile threats from North Korea, DoD News reported Thursday.

Mattis, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2017, told reporters Thursday at the Pentagon that President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson want to lead with diplomatic and economic efforts to resolve the problem.

He added the military remains ready to provide options to President Trump if necessary.

The Defense Department currently reviews intelligence from North Korea’s launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile earlier this week, according to Mattis.

He said the U.S. government is also working with China to urge North Korea to end its nuclear and missile programs.
