North Korea's Kim: 'Mentally Deranged' Trump Proves Nukes Were 'Correct Path'


"We can not deny the possibility it may fly over our country", Onodera said Thursday. Oh, and Trump might have finally pissed him off to the point of nuclear war.

"We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea".

North Korea was scheduled to speak at the UN General Assembly on Friday night, but dropped off of its planned roster spot.

Trump's latest steps to punish foreign companies that deal with the North was the latest salvo in a US -led campaign to isolate and impoverish the government of Kim Jong Un until it halts the missile and nuclear tests.

The South Korean government, which has tried to balance sanctions pressure by approving $8 million in humanitarian aid to North Korea this week, has again called on Pyongyang to engage in dialogue to reduce tensions.

"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea", he said.

Seoul's Unification Ministry, which is responsible for North-South relations, said it was the first time a North Korean leader had addressed the world with such a direct statement. "Tolerance for this disgraceful practice must end now". Earlier this month, North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date drawing stiffer United Nations sanctions.

The order boosts the US Treasury's ability to clamp down on individuals and companies that finance and facilitate trade with the reclusive state.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said banks doing business in North Korea would not be allowed to also operate in the United States.

Washington, however, is still banking on Beijing's help to get the North to stand down. Such action, if confirmed by China, would answer a longstanding request from the USA and its allies.

Gold is sensitive to moves higher in USA rates, which lift the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets such as bullion. Prices have fallen in six of the last seven sessions after hitting their highest level in more than a year earlier this.

"North Korea's remarks and behavior are provocative to regional and worldwide security, and they are absolutely unacceptable", said Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary, Yoshihide Suga. Japan has been subject to two North Korean missile test flyovers in recent weeks.

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

Wang said that the situation of North Korea is of utmost importance and is of common concern among the United Nations member countries. Along with Russia, China wants the seek dialogue with the North.

Trump's return to focusing on North Korea's economy may temper global unease over his tough address Tuesday. He also mocked Kim Jong-un with a disparaging nickname, saying: "Rocket man is on a suicide mission".

The recent "war-of-words" between Kim and Trump echoes a similar exchange in August where the U.S. president said the North will be met with "fire and fury" if it continues with its provocations against the global community.

"This is unprecedented, as far as we can tell", Narang said. He has also said that previous USA presidents allowed the North to develop its nuclear weapon.
