Trump jokes about 'deplorables' comment during remarks about N. Korea in NY

US Cannot Shoot Down DPRK Missiles: Global Defense Experts

Experts believe this is the first time a North Korean leader has made a direct address to an global audience.

European Union ambassadors have reached an initial agreement to impose more economicsanctions on North Korea, going beyond the latest round of United Nations measures, officials and diplomats said.

Asked for clarification on Thursday on what circumstances might qualify for the "totally destroy" threat, Mr Trump's national security adviser, HR McMaster, told NBC that would be if North Korea attacked the United States or its allies.

The Pentagon said the B-1B Lancer bombers came from Guam and the U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagle fighter escorts came from Okinawa, Japan.

That is about 20km (12m) south-east of where the North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, an official from the Korea Meteorological Administration in Seoul said.

China announced Saturday that it will limit exports of petroleum products to North Korea to comply with United Nations Security Council sanctions on the North's nuclear and missile development programs.

"We can not deny the possibility it may fly over our country", he said.

Above-ground nuclear testing has been unheard of for decades. "It is truly terrifying if something goes wrong".

Kim says Trump's threats only emphasize that North Korea has been justified in its pursuit of nuclear missiles.

Kim Jong-un's regime is trying to marry ballistic and nuclear technology to create a missile capable of delivering a nuke to the continental United States, and may be just months away from succeeding.

Abe said Japan, a treaty ally of the United States, consistently supported the US stance that "all options are on the table" in dealing with North Korea.

In the course of the speech, Trump said if the United States is "forced to defend itself and its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

"I'd like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world", Kim said, according to reports.

At a Security Council meeting later Thursday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was to push for strict enforcement of a new raft of global sanctions targeting North Korea's exports and its energy supplies.

Trump praised China on Thursday for what he said was instructions to its banks to cut off business with North Korea.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said Wednesday US President Donald Trump's threat to destroy the hermit kingdom sounded like "a dog barking".

In an executive order issued Thursday, the Treasury Department has been granted expanded latitude to target anyone trading with North Korea, barring them from using the USA banking system. It will also ban imports of textiles from North Korea.

Kim essentially says that he expected better of Trump.

"The president obviously takes very seriously the security of the American people".
