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.

Pakistan ready to work with Trump administration: PM Abbasi
She said government should extend support to her for promotion of education in the rural areas particularly in Swat. Abbasi said Pakistan has been eager to get a nuclear deal from the U.S similar to what India was given in 2006.

A senior USA official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that the United States is taking Kim's threat seriously.

"We are the second and 3rd largest economies in the world".

The North Korean diplomat said that he "feels forced to make comments on someone who calls himself the US president", adding that "it's fair enough for me to respond in the corresponding tone".

Trump has dubbed Kim a "madman" and sought to ratchet up sanctions against the isolated regime, which says it needs nuclear weapons to protect itself against the threat of invasion.

President Trump's recent insults against North Korea have only made it likelier the USA will be attacked, the country's foreign minister warned Saturday.

Japan and South Korea, "ironclad" allies of the USA, have been especially unnerved by the tests and often hold drills in preparation for an attack. It did not name specific weapons systems.

The September 3rd test was North Korea's most powerful detonation, triggering a much stronger 6.3-magnitude quake that was felt across the border in China.

Trump said: "We must work together against those who threaten with chaos and terror".
