North Korea stages anti-US rally in battle with Trump

North Korea stages anti-US rally in battle with Trump

After saying President Donald Trump's United Nations speech was a 'declaration of war, ' North Korea's foreign minister called an impromptu press conference Monday to announce his country will shoot down any US bombers, even if they are flying in worldwide airspace.

The foreign minister opened his brief remarks in Korean by saying that over the last few days, the U.N. and the global community have clearly wished "that the war of words between [North Korea] and the United States will not turn into real action".

Ri made the comments to reporters in NY.

In letters sent this weekend, North Korea condemned US President Donald Trump's administration and the actions of "US imperialists", urging foreign parliaments and political parties to take a stand, state media reported Monday.

This story is breaking and will be updated.

No other USA fighter or bomber has flown that far north of the Korean demilitarized zone in this century.

Ri told the U.N. General Assembly on Saturday that targeting the US mainland with its rockets was inevitable after "Mr Evil President" Trump called Kim a "rocket man" on a suicide mission.

The U.S. president mocked Kim as a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission", and said that the U.S.

Yong-ho stressed the world "should clearly remember" that it was the United States and not North Korea who first declared war. "In case innocent lives of the U.S. are harmed because of this suicide attack, Trump will be held totally responsible".

Last week, Trump - whose administration has stepped up rhetoric on Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests - told the United Nations the USA could "totally destroy" the reclusive nation and signed an executive order boosting the US' ability to levy sanctions against trade with North Korea.

In an unprecedented direct statement on Friday, Kim responded by calling Trump a "mentally deranged USA dotard" whom he would tame with fire.

North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, has said Trump would "pay dearly" for threatening to "totally destroy" North Korea if the USA was forced to defend itself or its allies against a North Korean attack.

On Monday, North Korea, which has pursued its missile and nuclear programs in defiance of worldwide sanctions, said it "bitterly condemned the reckless remarks" of Trump. We will see who lasts longer.
