Japan FM urges countries to cut ties with North Korea

Kim Jong-un celebrates a missile launch

Hans Kristensen, a nuclear expert at the Federation of American Scientists, says he thinks the North Korean threat is likely bluster, but if it happened "there's a real possibility" the USA would take military action in response, given the potential for an accidental detonation over a populated area and the potential threat to sea or air traffic.

Supporters of the president, and those who take a more hawkish line on North Korea generally, argue that tough words backed up by action are just what is required.

"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the US pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying [North Korea]", he said.

Trump has said he won't allow it, although the U.S.so far has not used military force to impede the North's progress.

KELEMEN: Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, told the United Nations that North Korea never had any intention of abandoning its nuclear and missile development and has used talks as a way to buy time.

There was no immediate reaction from China's Foreign Ministry, but the news was widely reported by Chinese state media outlets and on social media.

In recent months, it has also launched a pair of still-developmental ICBMs it said were capable of striking the continental United States and two intermediate-range missiles that soared over Japanese territory. He also said if the U.S.

The United Nations Security Council recently held two unanimous 15-0 votes adopting hard-hitting resolutions against North Korea, and I want to thank China and Russian Federation for joining the vote to impose sanctions, along with all of the other members of the Security Council...

"It could be the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific", Mr Ri said, quoted by South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

Trump stopped short of going after North Korea's biggest trading partner, China, and praised its central bank for ordering Chinese banks to stop doing business with North Korea.

The quake was detected in an area around Kilju, in northeastern North Korea, just 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) northwest of where the North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, according to an official from Seoul's Korea Meteorological Administration. "The order enhances the treasury department's authorities to target any individual or entity that conducts significant trade in goods, services, or technology with North Korea".

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho has called US President Donald Trump's address to the United Nations "the sound of a dog barking", brushing aside Trump's remarks that the United States may be forced to "totally destroy" North Korea.

It imposes a 180-day ban on vessels and aircraft that have visited North Korea from visiting the United States. South Korean President Moon Jae-in is also emphasizing the need for a peaceful solution. Russia's foreign minister is echoing that, saying there is no alternative to diplomacy.

North Korea's weakest nuclear test, its first one, conducted in 2006, generated a magnitude 4.3 quake. "But the North is leaving too little room for the U.S. to do so with the latest series of threats and provocations", he said.

Trump has said on multiple occasions that the strategy of talks with North Korea, which have lasted now for over 20 years, are not working.
