NK Diplomat Warns US to Take H-Bomb Threat 'Literally'”

In an interview in Pyogyang posted Thursday, the diplomat, Ri Yong Pil, declared North Korea "has always brought its words into action", CNN reported.

While North Korea has not tested a nuclear weapon or launched a ballistic missile in more than a month, the rogue regime is doubling down on its claims that it intends to detonate a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific.

The threat came hours after US President Donald Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea in a speech to the UN. "Therefore, I think his words should be taken literally".

Speaking on a visit to NY for the United Nations General Assembly last month, Ri Yong Ho, the foreign minister, raised the possibility that North Korea could test a powerful hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean.

"The Foreign Minister knows the Supreme leader's intentions very well", he said. "North Korea, through both its words and actions, threatens and undermines global peace and security".

North Korea conducted its latest and so far most powerful H-bomb test on September 3, which prompted an unanimous UNSC vote in favor of imposing more sanctions - so far the toughest - on Pyongyang, restricting oil exports and banning imports of textile products from the Asian nation, as well as the country's access.

A state editorial condemning North Korea's nuclear test in September also reprimanded the U.S. for its "belligerent tone", cautioning that "military exercises on DPRK's doorstep ate into Pyongyang's sense of security" and suggesting that North Korea suspend its military programs in exchange for the suspension of military exercises.

"The talking about a military option and even practicing military moves", Ri told CNN. Defense Secretary James Mattis had said weeks earlier that North Korea risked "total annihilation" if it continued to defy the world and threaten allies. They're pressuring us on all fronts with sanctions.

Ja said the Security Council must discuss the "nuclear threat from the U.S". "There's a certain amount of bluster that's taken for granted when you're dealing with North Korea", a Trump administration official told Reuters.
