Kim calls Trump 'deranged', may consider H-bomb test in Pacific

US will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea says Trump at UN General Assembly

"Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond expected".

Trump has responded by driving a raft of new tough sanctions on Pyongyang and engaging in blistering rhetoric, culminating in Tuesday's United Nations address, where he said Washington would "totally destroy" North Korea if the USA or its allies were threatened.

The rhetorical battle came as outside experts say North Korea is getting closer to achieve its long-stated goal of building nuclear-armed missiles capable of hitting anywhere on the U.S. mainland.

Trump even went on to call the North Korean leader "Rocket Man", on "a suicide mission for himself and for his regime".

In his response, Kim stressed that his threat to "tame the mentally deranged United States dotard with fire" was "not a rhetorical expression".

In a rare direct statement, Kim said he "will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding, highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history". "The reckless behaviour, pronouncements and the development of nuclear weapons by North Korea represents something that all countries in the world should be seized with and concerned about".

NEW YORK-The leaders of Japan, the United States and South Korea agreed on September 21 to apply even greater pressure on North Korea to force Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

North Korea says it needs a sturdy nuclear deterrence to protect it from an aggressive United States, and the autocratic regime has made militarism a central part of its national ideology.

North Korea was one of the top issues dominating the agenda at the UN General Assembly in NY, where several speakers called for a de-escalation of tensions. Last week, the U.N. unanimously passed fresh measures to punish the isolated nation economically, with the support of China and Russian Federation.

They should be prepared to take "all necessary measures" to tackle the North Korean threat, the Prime Minister said.

He added that United States continues to seek a "complete denuclearization of North Korea".

North Korea's foreign minister has described President Donald Trump's threat to destroy his country as "the sound of a dog barking".

"It was absolutely not a lack of dialogue that gave rise to this situation", Abe said in remarks devoted nearly entirely to the North Korean threat. He said the action "was a somewhat unexpected move and we appreciate it".
