North Korea's foreign minister calls Trump's U.N. address "sound of dog barking"

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho called U.S. President Donald Trump's address to the United Nations "the sound of a dog barking", brushing aside Trump's remarks that the United States may be forced to "totally destroy" North Korea.

 

"There is a saying that goes: 'Even when dogs bark, the parade goes on'," said Ri in televised remarks to reporters in front of a hotel near the United Nations headquarters in New York.

 

"If (Trump) was thinking about surprising us with dog-barking sounds then he is clearly dreaming."

 

When asked by reporters what he thought of Trump calling North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "rocket man", Ri quipped, "I feel sorry for his aides."

 

Ri is slated to make a U.N. speech on Friday.

 

His comments were the first official reaction from North Korea after Trump had issued his sternest warning yet to Pyongyang in his address to the United Nations, urging member states to work together to isolate the Kim regime until it halts its hostile behaviour. [nL2N1M00N4]

 

If North Korea threatens the United States or its allies, Trump said: "We will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea."

 

"Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime," he added.

 

South Korea's presidential office had later said Trump's warning to North Korea had been "firm and specific".

While they be at least partially correct about Trump barking like a dog, as he is barking mad, that would leave us with the situation where the gibbering of Kim and the NK propaganda can be likened to that of a crazed baboon. Regardless, both of them are unstable and neithers rants are taken seriously.

What I have trouble coming to terms with is that DPRK has been ignoring UN resolutions and International law for decades. Sanctions have not worked over years and years. China has probably been supporting them more than they let on, and maybe Russia as well. Makes the UN a laughing stock. What's the point of the UN in such instances?

Kimmie's killing his aides with rockets and packs of starving, vicious dogs and he's worried about Trump's aides. How noble, and delusional!

Which will mean War with a capital " W " when China defends its neighbour as it says it will do but that is probably what the warmongers  want because they will be safe in their nuclear bunkers

There is no firm basis to the claims that the PRC will "defend its neighbour". If you could cite anything concrete and recent to such an effect, please do. Not in the PRC's interests to get involved in any such war, and certainly not on behalf of Kim. The last line doesn't even make sense - what would be the point, even if one was a "warmonger" owning a nuclear bunker, of initiating a nuclear war? The prospects of spending years and decades in a cell underground?

Maybe North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho is setting himself up to be North Korea's version of the former Iraqi Information Minister,  "Baghdad Bob"/"Comical Ali"    ( Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf)

I think that without China's threat of retaliation if Trump takes military action against NK then the blusterer would have made a hit against them by now.  If Kim just stopped the showboating and quietly went about the business of developing his nuclear capabilities then there wouldn't be this focus on him.  But he can't help himself and neither can Trump.
