We will totally destroy North Korea - Donald Trump

North Korea's foreign minister ridiculed US President Donald Trump's threat to annihilate the isolated state, saying his warning was akin to the sound of a barking dog.

Along with the announcement, Trump said China's central bank has told other banks in the country to immediately stop doing business with North Korea.

"I am announcing a new executive order to sign that significantly expands authorities to target individuals, companies, financial institutions that finance and facilitate trade with North Korea", President Donald Trump said at a working lunch in NY, flanked by President Moon Jae-in of South Korea and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan.

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

Moon described ongoing provocations from the North as "extremely deplorable" - a word Trump described after as "very lucky" for him, harkening back to the 2016 presidential election and a comment made by Hillary Clinton describing some of Trump's supporters. At a time when North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has already rattled the worldwide community with his missile tests and blustering, Trump poured kerosene on the fire.

"I feel sorry for his aides", Ri said when asked about Trump's "Rocket Man" nickname for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Despite the sanctions, however, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has continued his missile tests, with the most recent being his September 14 launch of an intermediate range ballistic missile fired over Japan.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Wednesday she was in "clear disagreement' with US President Donald Trump over his threat to destroy North Korea".

He said the order enhanced the US Treasury Department's authority to target those that conduct "significant trade in goods, services or technology with North Korea".

Earlier this month, North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date and it was subsequently slapped with fresh, tough United Nations sanctions.
