Iranian president denounces Trump for 'ignorant, absurd and hateful rhetoric'

Iranian president denounces Trump for 'ignorant, absurd and hateful rhetoric'

Responding to Mr Trump's address at the United Nations, in which he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if it attacked the U.S. or its allies, Kim Jong Un issued a statement describing the speech as "unprecedented rude nonsense".

The North Korea leader said he is "thinking hard" about his response, but Trump will "pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying" his country.

A handful of North Korea analysts believe that this is the first time Kim Jong Un has ever released a first-person statement.

Ri Yong Ho, who is in the USA for the United Nations General Assembly, said he "felt sorry" for the President's advisers after a fiery speech to the UN on Tuesday.

Mr Trump said North Korea's textiles, fishing, information technology, and manufacturing industries were among those the United States could target.

Mrs May said the United Nations security council members should take tougher action against North Korea which "continues to defy and provoke the worldwide community and threaten its neighbours".

Even after the sanctions and ever-rising rhetoric, when asked if there is still an opportunity for dialogue between the nations, Trump said "Why not?"

North Korea has been testing missiles at an unprecedented rate, and conducted its sixth nuclear test despite global condemnation.

The "unprecedented rude nonsense" that Kim referred to was a speech that Trump gave at the U.N. General Assembly, where he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea.

Mr Trump said the measure would also disrupt other trade avenues for North Korea in efforts to halt its nuclear weapons program.

It signaled he is willing to apply economic pressure on Pyongyang just days after he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatened the USA or its allies.

She also defended Trump's fiery address during which he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea. "This is exactly what the North Korean regime is telling its people - that you need a strong leader, you need a nuclear program in order to protect yourselves from the United States". He said the action "was a somewhat unexpected move and we appreciate it".

Earlier, the United Nations Security Council had condemned the launch of yet another ballistic missile by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and called on the country's leadership to halt such activities and explore resumption of honest dialogue on de-nuclearisation.

South Korea approved a plan on Thursday to send $8 million (€ 6.7 million) worth of aid to North Korea, as China warned the crisis on the Korean peninsula was getting more serious by the day.
