Reports of North Korean tremor could be nuclear test

Reports of North Korean tremor could be nuclear test”

Tens of thousands of North Koreans packed into Kim II Sung Square in Pyongyang on Saturday as the government staged a massive rally against President Donald Trump and the United States.

Trump reiterated that, while the United States had great strength and patience, if forced to defend itself or its allies, the nation would have no choice but to "totally destroy" North Korea.

During the council meeting, speaker after speaker including USA allies in Europe and Japan spoke out in support of the 2015 nuclear deal that capped Iran's nuclear program, which President Donald Trump is threatening to scrap.

"I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire", Kim said in the rare direct statement carried by the KCNA state news agency, referring to Trump.

Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test on September 3 and has launched dozens of missiles this year as it accelerates a program aimed at enabling it to target the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

North Korea joined the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty in the mid-1980s but it "cheated" and was never held accountable, he said. He characterized Trump's speech to the world body on Tuesday as "mentally deranged behavior".

Trump later responded on Twitter, insulting Kim once more and appearing to threaten both men.

A Friday commentary from the North's official Korean Central News Agency accused the party newspaper People's Daily and other party news outlets of "kowtowing to the ignorant acts of the Trump Administration".

Trump said the China action he described "was a somewhat unexpected move and we appreciate it".

If China truly wants to denuclearize the peninsula, he said it should work "to put the kind of pressure on North Korea that can change its strategic calculation before it's too late". China, responsible for about 90 percent of North Korea's trade, serves as the country's conduit to the global banking system.

Petroleum exports for use in the North's ballistic missile program or other activities banned by United Nations sanctions also are prohibited, the Commerce Ministry said.

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

The test prompted global condemnation, leading the United Nations Security Council to unanimously adopt new sanctions that include restrictions on oil shipments.

Saturday's seismic activity came on the same day China announced it would limit trade with the North, reducing its fuel exports to its neighbor and banning all textile imports.
