Kim Jong-un responded via North Korea's state media.

Russian Federation urged calm on Friday after US President Donald Trump called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a "madman".

On Sept. 11, the UN Security Council unanimously stepped up sanctions against North Korea over its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, imposing a ban on the isolated nation's textile exports and capping imports of crude oil. According to the Korea Central News Agency, a communications arm of Kim Jong-un's government, the USA "will meet frightful nuclear strike and miserable and final ruin" if America engages in an act of war against North Korea.

A senior U.S. 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".

The North Korean dictator released a statement blasting Trump as a "mentally deranged US dotard" who would be cleansed "with fire".

He characterized Trump's speech to the world body on Tuesday as "mentally deranged behavior".

"Now that Trump has denied the existence of and insulted me and my country in front of the eyes of the world and made the most ferocious declaration of a war in history that he would destroy".

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley told reporters today that the new round of sanctions against North Korea announced by Trump earlier will sting because "North Korea is already feeling it".

North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho on Wednesday termed Trump's speech at UNGA as "sound of a dog barking".

The bombers, escorted by fighter jets, flew in worldwide airspace over waters east of North Korea, reported the New York Times.

Kim said that Trump is "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country".

Two seismic events recorded in North Korea were probably aftershocks from the state's missile test on 3 September, experts say. SEP 19 Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime AUG 8 They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen Kim Jong Un SEP 22 I will tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire.

Peter's said that China needs to intervene before the USA and North Korea go to war.

On Thursday, Mr Trump signed an executive order to introduce new sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear weapons programme.

"Why on earth would North Korea come to the table - if the president is signaling he's not willing to stand up and enforce diplomatic agreements", asks Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy.
