North Korea says Trump speech is 'a dog's bark'

North Korea says Trump speech is 'a dog's bark'

Recall that trump said about the readiness to completely destroy North Korea in the event of real threats to States.

"If (Trump) was thinking about surprising us with dog-barking sounds then he is clearly dreaming". In Korean, a dog dream is one that makes little sense.

"North Korea is attempting to dismiss with a smirk the efforts towards disarmament we have assiduously undertaken over the years", Abe added.

When asked by reporters what he thought of Trump calling North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "rocket man", Ri quipped, "I feel sorry for his aides".

Repeating his support for Washington's position that all options, including military action, remained on the table, Abe said pressure in the form of sanctions was preferable to negotiation.

North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear test on September 3 and recently launched a series of ballistic missiles, including two over Japan. "For North Korea, dialogue was instead the best means of deceiving us and buying time". North Korea's sixth nuclear test, as well as two missile launches over Japan, have heightened tensions in East Asia in recent weeks. "And this is why there is a clear disagreement on this point with the American president", Merkel said.

South Korea's presidential office had later said Trump's warning to North Korea had been "firm and specific". She called for a similar approach to the Iran nuclear agreement and working with Russia, China and the United States to deal with the DPRK nuclear issue.
