Dotard: The 14th century word brought back by Kim Jong

Dotard: The 14th century word brought back by Kim Jong

Ri told reporters in NY he did not know Kim's exact thoughts.

Trump's United Nations address was the most direct military threat to attack North Korea and his latest expression of concern about Pyongyang's repeated launching of missiles over Japan and underground nuclear tests.

Experts say the most likely way the North would conduct an atmospheric test over the Pacific is to launch a long-range missile - probably overflying Japan - and have its nuclear warhead detonate in the skies over a remote part of the Pacific.

South Korea called Kim Jong Un's rebuke a "reckless provocation" that would deepen his country's global isolation and lead to its demise.

Despite having a miniscule trade relation with Pyongyang, the European Union also announced new sanctions against North Korea on Thursday that would see a ban against all investment and oil exports to the rogue nation.

Kim Jong-un said Trump's comments were the "most ferocious declaration of a war in history" and said his ongoing rhetoric had "convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last". South Korea's government said it was the first such direct address to the world by any North Korean leader.

I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire.

Trump and Kim have attacked each other and exchanged provocative threats amid growing tension over North Korea's nuclear programme.

Donald Trump his taken his stand-off with North Korea to a new pitch by calling Kim Jong-un "a madman" and saying the Pyongyang leader "will be tested like never before".

"Foreign financial institutions must choose between doing business with the United States or facilitating trade with North Korea or its designated supporters", a statement released by the White House said.

The Pentagon said Saturday that B-1B Lancer bombers from Guam and F-15C Eagle fighter escorts from Okinawa, Japan, flew in worldwide airspace over waters east of North Korea.

Mr Trump unveiled the new measures as he met with the leaders of allies Japan and South Korea, even as key players China and Russian Federation voiced unease with his more aggressive approach.

"The brutal North Korean regime does not respect its own citizens or the sovereignty of other nations", Trump said.

Four sources earlier told Reuters that China's central bank had told banks to strictly implement United Nations sanctions against North Korea.

But this is not the first example of North Korea's caustic comments.

The US Geological Survey measured a magnitude 3.5 quake 22 kilometers (more than 13 miles) east-northeast of Sungjibaegam, North Korea.

Banks anywhere in the world that facilitate trade with North Korea would be locked out of the United States; aircraft and ships that visited the North would be barred from landing and berthing in the USA for six months.

A senior US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Washington was taking Kim's threat seriously and added that any atmospheric test would be a "game-changer".

It came after the UN Security Council had agreed on further sanctions on North Korea to reduce its ability to trade with the outside world. He warned the nuclear issue had to be managed stably so that "accidental military clashes will not destroy peace".
