North Korea will consider "the highest level of strong countermeasures in history" against the United States in response to US President Donald Trump's threat to destroy North Korea in full, North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un said in a rare statement on Friday.
He described Kim Trump as "mentally unstable" and said the president's remarks were "the fiercest declaration of war in history." Trump's speech at the United Nations on Tuesday confirmed Pyongyang's nuclear program was "the right path."
"His remarks [Trump] convinced me, without intimidating me or stopping me, that the path I have chosen is correct and that the path to follow is the end," Kim said in the statement, quoted by the official Korean Central News Agency.
"As a man representing the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and on behalf of and on behalf of my nation and people's dignity and honor, I will make the man in charge of the leadership of the United States pay dearly for his speech," Kim said.
"The United States has a great power and patience, but if it has to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice," US President Donald Trump said during his speech at the 72nd UN General Assembly in New York on North Korea and its nuclear tests. Only the complete destruction of North Korea. "
Trump said the North Korean regime was torturing, suppressing and killing his people, adding that the North Korean president had assassinated his brother. He called on the participants in the summit to stop trading with the country and to isolate the regime in North Korea.
North Korean Foreign Minister Lee Yong-ho, who arrived in New York for the UN General Assembly session, described Trump's speech as "barking dogs."
"There is a popular example," he told reporters at the hotel. "If dogs are barking and the caravan is going, if President Trump thinks that barking dogs will frighten us, that's nonsense."
On Thursday, the US president signed an executive order allowing the United States to impose sanctions on North Korean firms in an attempt to discourage Pyongyang from pursuing its nuclear and missile programs.
"The new executive order will cut the revenue resources that fund North Korea's efforts to develop the most deadly weapons mankind has ever known," Trump told reporters before meeting with leaders of Japan and South Korea.
Among the areas targeted by the United States in North Korea are the textile, fishing, information technology and manufacturing industries.
