North Korea said President Donald Trump was worse that Adolf Hitler, citing his administration's departure from the Paris climate accords and an United Nations organization, Newsweek reported on Wednesday. I don't know if North Korea will survive a year with these sanctions.
Ms Bishop told Fairfax it was the first time Australia had received a letter from North Korea, which typically communicates through its state-run news agency KCNA, as it did on the weekend.
He said Kim Jong Un "wants some help from the U.S." because he doesn't trust China and feels USA support is the only way to "solidify his leadership and regime".
North Korea could be trying to "pick off" allies with the letter, according to Euan Graham.
The letter criticised Trump's fiery warning in a speech to the UN in September that his nation could "totally destroy" North Korea and states that "if Trump thinks he would bring the DPRK, a nuclear power, to its knees through nuclear war threat, it will be a big miscalculation" as "the DPRK has emerged as a fully fledged nuclear power".

The letter urged that Australia, among other parliaments, realise its desire for "international justice and peace" and steer away from the "heinous and reckless" moves of Donald Trump's camp.
"The sanctions the White House has imposed are historical. So I think that this shows they are feeling desperate, feeling isolated, trying to demonise the U.S., trying to divide the global community".
'This is effectively an invitation to have high level access, to send an [Australian] delegation from Seoul, ' Dr Graham said.
"Now would be a good time for Australia to exercise its-still existing, even if on-off, diplomatic relations with the North".
Australia maintains low-level diplomatic relations with North Korea, but has not had an embassy in Pyongyang since 1974, while North Korea closed its embassy in Canberra in 2008.
