US urges all nations to stop the spread of nuclear weapons

US urges all nations to stop the spread of nuclear weapons”

During the rally, the U.S. president once again referred to Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man", a term Trump has been using off later to describe the North Korean dictator.

The North Korean leader had attacked Donald Trump days after his speech at the United Nations, in which the U.S. president said he would "totally destroy" North Korea if the USA was forced to defend itself or its allies.

An unnamed, but senior Trump Administration official says the USA is taking the "threat" of North Korea carrying out an above-ground hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific "seriously".

The statement, which called Trump "a frightened dog" and a "dotard", was delivered by Kim Jong Un himself, and it even included a picture of the North Korean leader sitting behind a desk, apparently reading from the statement.

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 Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the media that Pyongyang could test a powerful nuclear weapon in the Pacific Ocean in response to Trump's threats.

President Donald Trump tweeted Friday morning that Kim "was obviously a madman" and "will be tested like never before". Experts say North Korea also uses shell companies to skirt rules. He called him 'unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country and he is surely a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire rather than a politician'.

As North Korea escalates its nuclear threats and the United States responds with new sanctions, dialogue between the two countries' leaders has devolved into a name-calling match that some consider unsafe.

Professor Petras said, "The situation between the United States and North Korea has reached very unsafe levels of exchanges, verbal exchanges, economic sanctions, military exercises by the U.S. of the North Korean frontiers". North Korea recently claimed that is close to achieving its nuclear goals, despite worldwide pressure to rein in the aggressive little country.

All of North Korea's previous six nuclear tests registered as earthquakes of magnitude 4.3 or above.

We look forward to hearing more about that direction for resolving what's becoming more and more a standoff, and less about insults that could push Kim over the edge toward war.
