Asked about increasing the penalties on President Kim Jong Un's regime, Trump said, "We will see".

Ri's comments came just hours after Kim said that Trump would "pay dearly" for threatening to "totally destroy" North Korea.

Some analysts saw Kim's statement as a clear announcement that North Korea would ramp up its already brisk pace of weapons testing, which has included missiles meant to target USA forces throughout Asia and the US mainland.

A day after Trump's address, North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho had likened Trump to a "barking dog", saying his comments were no threat to the North.

It came two days after Trump's speech to the United Nations General Assembly in NY in which he threatened to "totally destroy North Korea". Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The dictator said he is "thinking hard" about what kind of reaction Trump could have possible expected when he delivered those remarks.

North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear test this month.

Mr Trump said the measure would also disrupt other trade avenues for North Korea in efforts to halt its nuclear weapons program.


Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday, with Trump moving to impose new sanctions against the country.

She also defended Trump's fiery address during which he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea.

"We support Congress in deciding how to best use this information to inform the public, and we expect the government to publish its findings when its investigation is complete", he said.

The statement carried by North's official Korean Central News Agency, comes after the US President gave a bellicose speech at the UN General Assembly in which he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if it did not step aside from its nuclear weapons programme.

The United Nations Security Council has approved multiple rounds of sanctions on North Korea, including on its exports. Despite Japan's proximity to North Korea, its currency regularly benefits when investor anxiety suddenly rises.

Following Trump's threat of "fire and fury" over Pyongyang's missile programme in August, the North said it was considering strikes near USA strategic military installations in the Pacific territory of Guam.

He added that United States continues to seek a "complete denuclearization of North Korea".
