Seoul media say North might test nuke in Pacific

Seoul media say North might test nuke in Pacific”

Trump said in his first address to the United Nations on Tuesday he would "totally destroy" North Korea, a country of 26 million people, if it threatened the United States and its allies, and called Kim a "rocket man" on a suicide mission.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un lobbed a string of insults at President Donald Trump on Friday, calling him a “mentally deranged US dotard” and hinting at frightening new weapons tests. -North Korea crisis a country-to-country war of words.

It could be that Kim felt that a direct, personal response was crucial because of the harshness of Trump's comments.

Earlier Friday, Kim issued a rare statement calling Trump "deranged" and said he will "pay dearly" for his threats to destroy North Korea.

HE FEELS JUSTIFIED Kim says Trump's threats only emphasize that North Korea has been justified in its pursuit of nuclear missiles.

Hours later, North Korea's foreign minister, citing that "highest level" phrase from Kim, told reporters in NY that Kim might have been signaling a plan to conduct a test of a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific.

"It could be the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific", North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told reporters.

The US President responded with an early morning tweet, saying: "Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!" North Korean state TV later showed a solemn-looking Kim, dressed in a gray Mao-style suit, reading the statement. It repeatedly called one past South Korean leader "rat faced".

Such a test would be considered a major provocation by Washington and its allies. China, responsible for about 90 percent of North Korea's trade, serves as the country's conduit to the global banking system.

"This could probably mean the strongest hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean".

“We can not deny the possibility it may fly over our country, ” he said.

“And if the test doesnt go according to plan, you could have population at risk, too, ” he said. It was the latest salvo in a USA -led campaign to isolate and impoverish Kim's government until it halts the missile and nuclear tests. "It is truly terrifying if something goes wrong".

Kim's statement also seems to signal more weapons tests on the horizon - a worrying prospect given the North's willingness to back up its belligerent rhetoric against Trump with action.

North Korea says it needs to have a nuclear deterrent because the United States intends to invade it. Analysts say the North is likely to soon achieve its objective of possessing nuclear missiles capable of reaching any part of the US homeland.

"I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire, he has made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors".

And an exchange of threats is a game North Korea - a nation that's overshadowed on everything non-nuclear by its rich and vibrant southern rival - is more than willing to play.

President Donald Trump has added economic action to his fiery military threats against North Korea, authorizing stiffer new sanctions in response to the Koreans' nuclear weapons advances.

Trump also praised China for what he called an instruction to its banks to cut off business with North Korea.

On Thursday in New York, Trump announced the latest steps to punish foreign companies that deal with the North. Asked for comment last week, the Foreign Ministry said China has always fully implemented United Nations sanctions on North Korea but opposes "unilateral" restrictions imposed by another country on Chinese entities.

The White House said North Korea's energy, medical, mining, textiles, and transportation industries were among those targeted and that the US Treasury could sanction anyone who owns, controls or operates a port of entry in North Korea.

He added that United States continues to seek a "complete denuclearisation of North Korea".
