"This could probably mean the strongest hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean".

"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the US pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying the DPRK", he said in the colorful and ominous statement.

"I think this is a major mistake, you wan the rest of the world to be with us", says former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Nick Burns.

President Donald Trump is again assailing North Korea Kim Jong Un, saying that he "will be tested like never before".

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.

Two days after threatening in his first address to the UN General Assembly to "totally destroy North Korea", Trump signed an executive order that would ban firms from operating in the United States if they deal with North Korea.

The head of the nuclear test monitoring agency CTBTO said on Saturday that analysts were "looking at unusual seismic activity of a much smaller magnitude" in North Korea, and that it would have more details to come.

Yong Ho, during a visit to NY for the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), asserted that the recent economic sanctioned imposed by the UN and the United States, will not prevent his country from developing a nuclear force that is capable of hitting the USA mainland.

"His remarks. have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last", Kim said in the statement carried by the North's official KCNA news agency, promising to make Trump "pay dearly for his speech".

Hours later, Kim branded Trump as "deranged".

North Korea has made swift progress in its efforts to develop a nuclear weapon that could target the US mainland.

"That would be a disaster beyond compare for the region, for the people of North Korea, who have no dog in this fight, who are just trying to feed themselves", Australia's Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce told reporters in Perth.

North Korea has launched dozens of missiles this year, several flying over Japan, as it accelerates its program aimed at enabling it to target the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

Hours before he took the United Nations podium, U.S. bombers flew off North Korea's east coast, flying the furthest north of the demilitarized zone of any USA aircraft.

CHANG: Kim lectured the USA president, calling his behavior mentally deranged.
