President Trump has accused China of not putting enough pressure on Kim’s regime to step back from its sabre-rattling.
Kim Jong-un has reached a new peak on Friday, the us president, calling the north Korean leader’s “crazy” at the time the plan referred to a possible test of H-bomb in the Pacific.
North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong Ho initially responded to Trump’s United Nations speech by remarking to reporters that,”If he was thinking he could scare us with the sound of a dog barking, that’s really a dog dream”.
Trump delivered a combative speech Tuesday at the UN General Assembly, where he mocked Kim as a “Rocket Man” on a “suicide mission”.
China announced yesterday that it will limit energy supplies to North Korea and stop buying its textiles under United Nations sanctions imposed over its nuclear and missile development, further reducing support from Pyongyang’s last ally.
South Korean experts on the military said the threat is credible because “North Korea has kept its word” on provocations, News 1 reported.
Ri’s highly anticipated speech to the General Assembly’s annual ministerial meeting fuelled the fiery rhetoric between the USA president and North Korea’s young leader.
Ri Yong-Ho made the comment on the sidelines of a United Nations gathering in NY on September 21, South Korean media reported. They also committed to pursue other efforts to maximize pressure on North Korea, including urging China and Russian Federation to play more consequential roles.
Butt according to Kozue Akibayashi, professor at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan, and International President of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), “The Japanese people do not support warmongering by Trump or Shinzo Abe, both of whom are using the North Korean nuclear threat to justify more militarization, such as revoking Article 9, which threatens the security of the entire region”.
Trump called the North Korean leader a “madman” on Friday, a day after Kim dubbed him a “mentally deranged USA dotard”.
During his address to the UN General Assembly earlier this week, Trump vowed to “totally destroy North Korea” if provoked.
Earlier this month, North Korea detonated a powerful hydrogen bomb at its Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the north-east of the country.
“Once we can assess the nature of this threat, the president will make a decision regarding the appropriate actions”, Tillerson said, adding that Trump would receive advice from the National Security Council and others but that, “ultimately, it will be his decision”. Kim Jong-un said the United States president will “pay dearly” for his threat.
But Kim Jong-un declared that Trump’s speech had shown him that he was doing the right thing in developing the nukes.
The words between the USA and North Korea this week have been blunt, provocative and personal.
A senior US diplomat says a North Korean hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific would be an “unprecedented act of aggression” by the communist nation.
