Consequences of military action against North Korea may be horrific

Han Tae Song, ambassador of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the United Nations in Geneva, was addressing the U.N. -sponsored Conference on Disarmament two days after his country detonated its sixth nuclear test explosion.

"The US will receive more gift packages from my country as long as it relies on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the DPRK", he added without elaborating.

But, in a warning to Pyongyang, South Korea conducted exercises involving warships, F-15 fighter jets and land-based ballistic missiles, simulating an attack on North Korea's nuclear test site.

Defiant North Korea led by headstrong leader Kim Jong Un is not in anyway backing down in its war of words with the U.S. after Pyongyang's UN ambassador says its biggest nuclear weapons test yet was a "gift" addressed to the United States.

"I don't think [North Korea can hit USA cities yet], but if we keep fooling around they are going to get there". "Not necessarily", she told the American Enterprise Institute think tank in Washington.

On Sunday, North Korea said it detonated a hydrogen bomb designed for a long-range missile and called it a "perfect success", inviting worldwide condemnation and promises of tougher United States sanctions.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday Trump continues to see denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula as the priority in how it responds to the latest nuclear weapons test.


The Council has adopted Resolution 2356 designating high-ranking North Korean government officials and the military's Strategic Rocket Forces Command for individual sanctions.

China accounted for 92 percent of North Korea's trade in 2016, according to South Korea.

He also said it was "ridiculous" that the United States first slapped Russian Federation with sanctions carried in the same bill that penalised North Korea, and "then asked us to help impose sanctions on North Korea".

The North Koreans have massive military assets stockpiled on what is the world's most heavily-fortified border with South Korea.

"Russia condemns North Korea's exercises; we consider that they are a provocation".

Following the September 3rd test, South Korea announced an agreement with its ally the United States, to scrap a weight limit on its warheads, saying this would help it respond to the threat from its northern neighbour.
