North Korean leader Kim Jong Un rides a horse as he visits battle sites in areas of Mt Paektu, Ryanggang, North Korea, in this undated picture released December 4, 2019. North Korea said it would take "prompt corresponding actions" if the United States resorts to military force, state media reported, as tensions rise ahead of Pyongyang's year-end deadline for stalled denuclearisation talks. The statement came just hours after North Korea announced it would convene a rare gathering of top ruling-party officials later this month, and state media showed photos of leader Kim taking a second symbolic horse ride on the country's sacred Mt. Paektu. KCNA via REUTERS

U.S. President Donald Trump meets with France's President Emmanuel Macron, ahead of the NATO summit in Watford, in London, Britain, December 3, 2019.

Macron stood by comments he made describing NATO as suffering from a lack of strategic purpose akin to "brain death," and criticized fellow NATO member Turkey, which he accused of working with Islamic State proxies.
