Seoul – North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho referred to as US President Donald Trump’s address to the United Nations “the sound of a dog barking”, brushing apart Trump’s remarks that america could also be compelled to “completely destroy” North Korea.
“There’s a saying that goes: ‘Even when canine bark, the parade goes on’,” mentioned Ri in televised remarks to reporters in entrance of a resort close to the United Nations headquarters in New York.
“If (Trump) was eager about shocking us with dog-barking sounds then he’s clearly dreaming.”
When requested by reporters what he thought of Trump calling North Korean chief Kim Jong Un “rocket man”, Ri quipped, “I really feel sorry for his aides.”
Ri is slated to make a UN speech on Friday.
His feedback have been the primary official response from North Korea after Trump had issued his sternest warning but to Pyongyang in his address to the United Nations, urging member states to work collectively to isolate the Kim regime till it halts its hostile behaviour.
If North Korea threatens america or its allies, Trump mentioned: “We could have no alternative however to completely destroy North Korea.”
“Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime,” he added.
South Korea’s presidential workplace had later mentioned Trump’s warning to North Korea had been “agency and particular”.
