Iran could set 'precedent' for North Korea

RELATEDNorth Korea defector'proud of nukes says Kim would rather die than give

Numerous scientific agencies on both sides of the Pacific detected an quake Saturday near the site where North Korea set off a hydrogen bomb earlier this month, at first prompting speculation of another weapons test, before a consensus appeared to emerge that the tremor was a natural occurrence.

Earthquakes detected in North Korea were probably not caused by explosions, CTBTO says.

South Korea's weather agency said it was analysing the nature of the quake, but its initial view was that it was a natural earthquake.

"It is, as the President said, a "massive source of embarrassment" - and we call on the Security Council and this entire body to immediately reform the membership and practices of the Human Rights Council - and end the Human Rights Council's blatant bias against our cherished ally, Israel". He added that they were still analysing the tremors, but they were "unlikely man-made".

North Korea depends on China for nearly all its oil and gas but estimates of its consumption are low, leaving it unclear how Beijing's new limit will affect them. In a one-and-only such test in 1962, the US launched a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile from a submerged submarine.

Ri Yong Ho spoke to reporters in NY shortly after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made an unprecedented televised statement, accusing Trump of being "mentally deranged".

The latest war of words between the two leaders began when the United Nations passed new sanctions on North Korea unanimously earlier this week in response to the growing nuclear threat posed by the country.

If Pyongyang makes good on the threat, it would mean marrying the two most powerful weapons known to man: a fusion-type nuclear weapon and a ballistic missile.

The flight, which was disclosed shortly before North Korea's foreign minister was due to address the United Nations, was the farthest north of the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea that any USA fighter jet or bomber has flown in the 21st century, the Pentagon said.

Until now, the North has not tested its missiles and nuclear weapons together, opting instead to fire them separately - the missiles above ground and the nuclear weapons below.

"None other than Trump himself is on a suicide mission", Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said during the general debate at the UN General Assembly.

"The "Rocket Man" should have been handled a long time ago". Because the USA president was speaking publicly on the world stage at the U.N., Kim thought he'd resort to "stereo-typed, prepared remarks a little different from what he used to utter in his office on the spur of the moment".

"And if the test doesn't go according to plan, you could have population at risk, too", he said.

U.S. President Donald Trump ordered new sanctions on Thursday that open the door wider to blacklisting people and entities doing business with North Korea, including its shipping and trade networks, further tightening the screws on Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.
