WASHINGTON: After hearing North Korean Foreign Minister's speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter to threaten Ri Yong Ho for speaking for Kim Jong Un.
 
"Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!," Trump tweeted.

Ri Yong Ho warned that President Donald Trump's bellicose remarks against the Asian country and its leader will make the U.S. mainland an "inevitable" target for rocket strikes.
 
Ri Yong Ho said, "Due to his lacking of basic common knowledge and proper sentiment, he tried to insult the supreme dignity of my country by referring it to a rocket,By doing so however, he committed an irreversible mistake of making our rocket's visit to the entire U.S. mainland inevitable all the more."
 
Terming the U.S. President "a mentally deranged person full of megalomania," the Foreign Minister told the United Nations General Assembly earlier on Saturday as the Pentagon announced that it had flown bombers escorted by fighter jets over waters east of North Korea.
 
This development assumes much significance as U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer taking patrol flight over waters east of North Korea, is the farthest north of the Demilitarized Zone any U.S. aircraft has flown off North Korea's coast in the 21st century.
 
North Korea has warned that US President Donald Trump's bellicose remarks against the Asian country and its leader will make the US mainland an "inevitable" target for rocket strikes.
 
"Through such a prolonged and arduous struggle, now we are finally only a few steps away from the final gate of completion of the state nuclear force," Ri told the annual gathering of world leaders in New York.
 
Trump has announced new U.S. sanctions on Thursday that he said will allow targeting the companies and institutions, which finance and facilitate trade with North Korea. Earlier this month, the U.N. Security Council unanimously adopted its ninth round of sanctions on Pyongyang to counter its nuclear and ballistic missiles programmes.Recently, North Korea conducted its sixth most powerful nuclear test on September 3, attracting UN sanctions and criticism from the international community.

Under Kim Jong Un's leadership, Pyongyang carried out several intercontinental ballistic missile tests, including 20 missile tests in 2016.
