The Foreign Minister of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea Ri Yong-ho compared the threats of President Donald Trump to "dogs' barking," the Guardian reported. He suggested that Pyongyang would not be discouraged by the rhetoric.

Trump versus Ri Yong-ho

At the UN General Assembly, Trump said that the United States would "completely destroy" North Korea if the DPRK threatened the security of the United States or its allies. Last week, Donald Trump called Kim Jong-un "Rocket Man" on Twitter, and then in his speech at the UN General Assembly, adding that Kim is conducting a "suicidal mission."

Yong-ho arrived in New York, where he responded sharply to the statement of President Donald Trump regarding the "complete destruction" of North Korea.

He commented on Trump's tweet and said that "“If he was thinking he could scare us with the sound of a dog barking, that’s really a dog dream,”." He also said that he felt sorry for Trump's aides when reporters asked him about Trump's description of the North Korean leader as a rocket man.

North Korea is unstoppable

In early September, the DPRK announced the successful testing of a hydrogen bomb designed to equip intercontinental ballistic missiles. The Foreign Ministry of Japan and South Korean military estimated that the power of the hydrogen bomb was 120 kilotons, which was 10 times greater than the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 during the World War II.

In late August, North Korea also conducted a ballistic missile test.

Earlier, US News reported that Russia and China suggested the DPRK "declare a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches." They also suggested that South Korea and the United States should refrain from conducting joint military exercises in the region to stabilize the situation on the peninsula, but Washington ignored this initiative.

During the United Nations General Assembly, Shinzo Abe, Japanese Prime Minister, requested they impose a global blockade on North Korea that would not allow it to access funds for carrying out missile and nuclear programs, UN News Center reported. On September 3, the United Nations put sanctions on Korea over the recent nuclear tests.

North Korea believes that a reliable nuclear deterrence could keep it safe from the United States. The DPRK, having no allies, considers the ideals of militarism to be its national ideology. The country wants to improve its armory and missiles to target the main territories of the US.
