Seismic activity detected near North Korean nuclear site
24 September 2017, 12:46 | Ruben Stone
North Korea's foreign minister has warned that Pyongyang could test a powerful nuclear weapon over the Pacific Ocean in response to US President Donald Trump's threats of military action during United Nations meeting.
Kim said the North would consider the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history" against the United States and that Trump's comments had confirmed his own nuclear program was "the correct path".
ABC News Anchor David Muir asked Tillerson in an interview on "Good Morning America" about North Korea's warning that it could detonate a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific in response to Trump's speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week.
It added that China has issued a "comprehensive ban on imported textiles" from North Korea, reiterating another clause of the new sanctions that prohibits trade in both fabric and clothing.
A small natural disaster near North Korea's nuclear test site on Saturday was probably not manmade, the nuclear proliferation watchdog and a South Korean official said, easing fears Pyongyang had exploded another nuclear bomb just weeks after its last one.
"We will continue our efforts in the diplomatic arena, but all of our military options, as the president has said, is on the table", Tillerson said.
Detonating a nuclear-tipped missile over the Pacific Ocean would be a logical final step by North Korea to prove the success of its weapons program but would be extremely provocative and carry huge risks, arms control experts said on Friday. "They could have already prepared the plan and are now trying to use Trump's remarks as an excuse to make it happen", said Yang.
China wields the most influence on North Korea, providing an economic lifeline. The North Korean foreign minister announced that if the pressure gets too intense, the regime will punish those who punished it. It does, however, raise many questions, including: How would the North undertake such a nuclear test, what risks might it pose to Japan and how would the US respond? -South Korean military drills to kick-start talks.
