Donald Trump To Speak In 'Tough Terms' About North Korea In First UN Speech

China announced Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017 it will limit oil supplies to North Korea under United Nations sanctions starting October 1, 2017, stepping up pressure on Pyongyang over its pursuit of nuclear and missile technology.

The president's office did add that "analysis is still ongoing so we will keep you posted".

Mr Trump said his new executive order would also disrupt other trade avenues for North Korea in efforts to halt its nuclear weapons programme.

North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho on Wednesday termed Trump's speech at UNGA as "sound of a dog barking". Sales of liquefied natural gas are banned outright.

Freelance journalist Jihye Lee said the original statement in Korean used a term better translated as "old beast lunatic", but it became "dotard" in the English version released by North Korea.

That is about 20km (12m) south-east of where the North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, an official from the Korea Meteorological Administration in Seoul said. He added that they were still analysing the tremors, but they were "unlikely man-made".

Earthquakes detected in North Korea were probably not caused by explosions, CTBTO says.

"In this case we saw none".

"Our analysis shows that it was a natural quake".

North Korea's Foreign Minister described Trump's United Nations address as "the sound of a barking dog".

All of North Korea's six nuclear tests registered as earthquakes of magnitude 4.3 or above.




According to its website, the first quake - with a 2.6 magnitude occurred at 12:43 a.m. ET.

"He is being tested with these sanctions", the secretary said.

North Korea has fired two ballistic missiles over Japan in the past month, raising regional tensions even further.

The U.S. government's Energy Information Agency estimates the North's 2016 daily imports from China at 15,000 barrels of crude oil and 6,000 barrels of refined products.

"The depth is poorly constrained and has been held to 5 km by the seismologist", USGS said.

There was no immediate reaction from China's Foreign Ministry.

The first sign Pyongyang has conducted a nuclear test is usually seismic activity.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called President Trump a "mentally deranged dotard" and threatened to "tame (Trump) with fire" for making comments to the United Nations about destroying the rogue nation.

On Tuesday, Trump mocked Kim as a "rocket man" on a "suicide mission", and said that if "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

"This could probably mean the strongest hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean", North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in NY on Thursday in response to a question about what action the regime might take against the U.S.
