North Korea Says Pacific Test Of Nuclear Warhead Is Possible

Senator launches push to expel North Korea from UN

On Friday, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in NY ahead of his speech at the United Nations that Kim may be planning to conduct "an unprecedented scale hydrogen bomb" test over the Pacific.

The ongoing war of words between the two leaders on opposite sides of the Pacific have been exacerbated in recent months amid growing tension over North Korea's nuclear weapons build-up.

"Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond his expectation", Kim said.

In August, after news reports indicated USA intelligence believed North Korea had produced a nuclear warhead capable of fitting inside a missile, Trump responded: "North Korea had best not make any more threats to the United States".

Trump's latest insult came one day after he imposed additional sanctions on Pyongyang.

Kim, however, characterised Trump's speech to the world body as "mentally deranged behaviour".

North Korea's foreign minister later said that could be a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific Ocean if Kim orders it.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un responded to Trump's comments Thursday, calling the USA commander in chief's behavior "deranged".

Oil Exempt In Fresh Sanctions On North Korea
All U.N. sanctions have to be acceptable to China, North Korea's protector and chief economic partner. Such action, if confirmed by China, would answer a longstanding request from the US and its allies.

'Vicious' Sanctions Will Only Speed Up Nuclear Program: North Korea
China accounts for about 90 percent of North Korea's trade and sends largely free crude oil shipments to the North. China in turn favors an global response to the problem. "We do not desire the collapse of North Korea".

Tillerson said the measures are the "strongest economic sanctions ever" to target Kim.

Some analysts see Kim's statement as a clear indication that North Korea would gear up its already improved pace of weapons testing, which has included missiles meant to target USA forces throughout Asia and the US territory.

At first tweeting about Kim and his insults, Trump tweeted that Kim is "obviously a madman", since he "doesn't mind starving or killing his people". It comes from the Middle English word doten (meaning "to dote"), which initially had the meaning of "imbecile" when it began being used in the 14th century.

Before the U.N. Trump mocked Kim's obsession with building up North Korea's missile program, referring to him as Rocket man, a nickname that was also applied to his father.

The explosion of a North Korean hydrogen bomb could be potentially deadly, because it could jam electronic signals and disable technology on planes, ships and submarines in the Pacific.

China is the biggest ally of North Korea with nearly 90% of global trade in the small country.

China was reported to have shut down access to its banking system in North Korea, with Trump praising Chinese President Xi Jinping for what he called a "very bold" move. The leader went to the extent of equating Trump to a "frightened dog" that barks louder when scared.
