North Korea accuses US of declaring war

US President Donald Trump's war of words with North Korea is continuing to escalate.

"The whole world should clearly remember it was the USA who first declared war on our country", Ri said.

The Prime Minister and president Xi agreed the situation in North Korea was deeply troubling, Downing Street said.

Kim said North Korea would consider the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history" against the USA and that Trump's comments had confirmed his nuclear program was "the correct path".

"The question of who won't be around much longer will be answered then".

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho said in NY on Thursday hat Pyongyang may consider its most powerful test of a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean.

"This mission is a demonstration of US resolve and a clear message that the President has many military options to defeat any threat", White said.
