North Korean foreign minister compares Trump's threat to dogs barking

North Korean foreign minister compares Trump's threat to dogs barking”

Mr Ri reportedly added: "We have no idea about what actions could be taken as it will be ordered by leader Kim Jong Un".

Mr Trump said his new executive order would also disrupt other trade avenues for North Korea in efforts to halt its nuclear weapons programme.

If enforced, the Chinese action Trump described could severely impede the isolated North's ability to raise money for its missile and nuclear development.

Though Trump's speeches typically employ colorful rhetoric, threatening another country with destruction was unprecedented for a US President and took diplomats aback.

"It could be a natural quake that really was man-made as the nuclear test would have transferred a lot of stress", he said. "What we are finding today is similar to that event and that's where we stand at this point in time".

Nuclear proliferation watchdog CTBTO has said that the two seismic events detected in North Korea on Saturday were probably not deliberate explosions. The larger one had a 3.4 magnitude, the group's initial assessment found, which is much smaller than anything declared as a nuclear test in previous years. For North Korea, because it's highly likely that they would have considered various countermeasures for the past few months, it's likely that the executive order won't be immediately damaging. The locations are around 50 kilometers away (more than 30 miles) from the site of previous nuclear tests, the group said.

An official of South Korea's Meteorological Agency said acoustic waves should be detected in the event of a man-made quake.

The quake, which South Korea's Meteorological Agency put at magnitude 3.0, was detected 49 km from Kilju in North Hamgyong Province, where North Korea's known Punggye-ri nuclear site is located, the official said.

The area isn't where natural earthquakes normally occur.

"We are carrying out a further analysis because there are concerns that it might have been a man-made natural disaster".

The administration said in a statement on its website that the natural disaster occurred around 08:30 GMT.

The U.S. Geological Survey said it could not conclusively confirm whether the quake, which it measured at magnitude 3.5, was man-made or natural.

Trump has unleashed many strong statements on North Korea including his August warning the North will be met with "fire and fury".

Experts say the goal is to increase pressure on Chinese financial institutionsThe executive order from U.S. President Donald Trump on September 21 regarding sanctions against North Korea is comprehensive to the point where it covers finance and trade.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un makes a statement regarding US President Donald Trump's speech at the UN general assembly.

In a statement issued by North Korean state-run agency KCNA on Friday, Kim said he "will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding highest level of hardline countermeasure in history", while promising that the U.S. will "pay dearly" for Trump's remarks at the UN General Assembly.

"I am now thinking hard about what response he could have expected when he allowed such eccentric words to trip off his tongue", Kim said.

"I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire", Kim said in the statement carried by the KCNA state news agency.

The statement responded to Mr Trump's combative speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday where he mocked Kim as a "rocket man" on a "suicide mission" and said that if "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

Kim, who has traded ever-more heightened rhetoric with Trump, did not specify what his response would be.

North Korea believes that a reliable nuclear deterrence could keep it safe from the United States.
