North Korea calls Trump's United Nations address 'sound of dog barking'

North Korea calls Trump's United Nations address 'sound of dog barking'”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was in "clear disagreement' with US President Donald Trump over his threat to destroy North Korea".

Mr Trump's debut speech to the UN General Assembly marked his most direct threat to attack North Korea for its hostile activities that have included launching ballistic missiles over Japan and conducting underground nuclear tests.

Trump said North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un was "on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime".

Speaking to reporters outside his hotel after arriving in NY on Wednesday, Ri cited a Korean proverb when asked to respond to Trump's vow to destroy his country.

"If they believe they shock us with the sound of the barking of a dog, it is clear that they dream like a dog", he said on Wednesday, returning to his hotel. In Korean, a dog dream is one that makes little sense.

Pyongyang's stated aim is to be able to target the U.S. mainland and the nation has flaunted the advances in its weapons program in recent weeks, with the September test of what it said was a miniaturized H-bomb capable of being loaded onto a rocket.

Global leaders are becoming increasingly anxious about North Korea's nuclear aspirations as the country continues to test fire missiles over United States ally Japan.

A day later Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told the United Nations that dialogue with the North would not work. "For North Korea, dialogue was instead the best means of deceiving us and buying time. In what hope of success are we now repeating the very same failure a third time?"

Merkel has called for a diplomatic solution to curb North Korea's armament programme, with the 2015 Iran deal as a possible template.

Earlier it was reported that the security Council of the United Nations unanimously adopted a resolution imposing new sanctions against the DPRK. But anything else with regard to North Korea I think is wrong, ' said Merkel.
