South Korean media say North might test nuke in Pacific

24 Septembre 2017

President Donald Trump slammed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Friday by saying that he should have been "handled a long time ago".

On Thursday, 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.

It is unusual for the North Korean leader to issue such a statement in his own name.

Asian stocks fell and the Japanese yen and Swiss franc gained on the possibility of a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific.

During his address to the UN General Assembly earlier this week, Trump vowed to "totally destroy North Korea" if provoked.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called Mr Donald Trump a "dotard" and threatened to take the most "hardline countermeasure in history" after the US President warned that America, if threatened, would "totally destroy" the "rocket man" and his communist state.

On Tuesday, during what was his first appearance before the UN General Assembly, Trump said Kim was "on a suicide mission" and asserted that if North Korea continued its provocations, the United States would "have no choice but to totally destroy" the country.

There's some tricky-looking away fixtures for Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham this weekend. But Guardiola said the 34-year-old Toure is in his plans at the Etihad as they fight for every trophy.

But the North Korean leader said remarks by the "deranged" US President convinced him he is right to develop weapons for North Korea.

"North Korea has retaliated by escalating its nuclear testing including a possibility of a hydrogen bomb". North Korea has launched in what it says are tests of several missiles, some of which are believed to be able to strike the United States.

Kim said Trump's comments were reflective of "mentally deranged behavior". "Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond his expectation".

North Korea has created problems with its allies.

North Korea has continued making threats after the sanctions. The Rodong Sinmun printed Friday a photo of Kim reading the statement from the Workers' Party's Central Committee building on its front page.

Pierce took to Twitter to agree with Kim's statement.

Lavrov said Russian Federation was working with other countries "to strive for the reasonable and not the emotional approach - instead of the kindergarden fight between children (where) no one can stop them".
