North Korea: President Trump's statements are a 'declaration of war'

North Korea: President Trump's statements are a 'declaration of war'”

For reference, the US agency recorded a 6.3 magnitude quake after North Korea's hydrogen bomb test on September 3, its sixth of a nuclear weapon. The Pentagon said the mission showed how seriously President Donald Trump takes North Korea's "reckless behavior". "This mission is a demonstration of U.S. resolve and a clear message that the President has many military options to defeat any threat", White said.

China's quake administration said on Saturday it had detected a magnitude 3.4 natural disaster in North Korea that was a "suspected explosion", raising fears the isolated state had conducted another nuclear bomb test.

"We are prepared to use the full range of military capabilities to defend the United States homeland and our allies", the Pentagon official said.

Wang Jingdong, president of the world's largest lender Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), told reporters during a briefing the bank will "strictly implement UN Security Council decisions related to North Korea and carefully fulfil relevant global responsibility".

North Korea has said it intends to build a missile capable of striking all parts of the United States with a nuclear bomb.

Three-hundred-fifty airmen from the 28th Bomb Wing at the South Dakota base are among military personnel on Guam, the tiny Pacific island that's been the focus of recent global attention with escalating tensions between the US and North Korea.

In light of this, Ri said North Korea would take counter measures, including the right to shoot down U.S. bombers flying over the Korean Peninsula, even if they did not enter North Korean airspace. Luther Strange, Trump lashed out against Kim, telling the crowd, "we can't have madmen out there shooting rockets all over the place". Those threats have been met by harsh United Nations sanctions, and Trump this week rolled out a new set of rules aimed at penalizing individuals and entities that do business with North Korea.

In comments to reporters in New York, North Korea's foreign minister said his country's leader is considering whether to demonstrate his ability to detonate a nuclear warhead aboard a missile sent above the Pacific Ocean.

Hours later, Kim responded by saying Trump was "deranged".

In a speech before the U.N., Trump had called Kim a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission" and warned that the USA could "totally destroy North Korea" if provoked.

Trump's executive order expanded the Treasury Department's ability to target anyone conducting significant trade in goods, services or technology with North Korea, and to ban them from interacting with the USA financial system.

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

"For too long, North Korea has evaded sanctions and used the worldwide financial system to facilitate funding for its weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs", Secretary Mnuchin continued.
