North Korea Leader Threatens US With 'Highest Level' Response

An escalating war of words between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un ratcheted

London [U.K.], September 22: After United States President Donald Trump announced another sanction against North Korea, the country's leader Kim Jong-Un called the former mentally deranged US dotard.

North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un recently called President Donald Trump a "dotard".

Kim's statement came after Trump issued a new Executive Order that expands USA sanctions on North Korea and companies or individuals that are involved in business with the nation, indulge in creating tension with nuclear and ballistic missile test.

Hours later, North Korea's foreign minister reportedly said his country may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean.

He added that he didn't know what actions would be ordered by Kim Jong-un, Yonhap reported.

Kim lashed out after Trump stunned the world on Tuesday when he used his maiden UNGA speech to warn the North Korea that Washington would "totally destroy" it if the USA or its allies were attacked.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday any U.S. military decision against North Korea in the event of a hydrogen bomb explosion would "ultimately" be up to U.S. President Donald Trump.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un issues a statement condemning U.S. President Donald Trump's United Nations speech, seen in a photo carried by KCNA Friday.

Lavrov said that it was "unacceptable to incite to riots. for the sake of the so-called democratization of Venezuela". The administration of US President Donald Trump has on numerous occasions criticized the deal, calling it a mistake.

North Korea reacted sharply to the threat of trump
North Korea was scheduled to speak at the UN General Assembly Friday night, but dropped off of its planned roster spot. This shouldn't be handled now, but I'm going to handle it, because we have to handle it.

'Dawood Ibrahim has no plans of coming back to India'
It is like "diya tale andhera" (darkness under a lamp - or something taking place right under your nose). The Thane Crime Branch also are investigating Dawood's involvement in Kaskar's alleged extortion racket.

The leader said he "will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding, highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history", the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) report said. "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged United States dotard with fire".

Earlier this month North Korea claimed to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb that nuclear scientists estimated was almost seven times more powerful than the bomb the USA dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945. Hee spoke to the British news outlet in a secret location in Seoul, South Korea days after Kim and his regime conducted its sixth nuclear test this month. The fact that the North Korean dictator wrote his own response suggests that Trump's speech at the United Nations affected him greatly.

Washinton and Pyongyang have been at loggerheads over North Korea's nuclear programme in recent months.

The Pentagon said B-1B bombers from Guam, along with F-15C Eagle fighter escorts from Okinawa, Japan, flew in global airspace over waters east of North Korea on Saturday. He also mocked Kim by calling him a "Rocket Man" on a suicide mission.

It is unclear if North Korea can and will drop an H-bomb over the Pacific to test its capability.

"Our new executive order will cut off sources of revenue that fund North Korea's efforts to develop the deadliest weapons known to humankind".

Trump also said China was imposing major banking sanctions, too, but there was no immediate confirmation from the North's most important trading partner.
