Throughout the week, the US President Donald trump and the head of the DPRK Kim Jong-UN exchanged mutual injections – yet verbal. Trump during a speech at the UN General Assembly has threatened North Korea with a total destruction in the event of aggression. Kim Jong-UN called it “crazy” and threatened a sharp response. The foreign Ministry then stated that the speech can go about the explosion of a hydrogen bomb under the earth and in the waters of the Pacific ocean.
On Saturday the DPRK has experienced an earthquake, reminding of the consequences of another nuclear test. However, seismologists from neighboring countries decided that this time the tremors were caused by natural causes.
In addition, on Saturday morning, China announced a sharp restriction of trade with the DPRK, including a ban on the export of oil and import of textiles is one of the few sources of foreign exchange for the isolated sanctions of the state.
