North Korea says Trump has 'declared war'

China, S. Korea: Temblor Detected in North Korea Not a Nuclear Blast

Worldwide tensions over the rogue state's missile testing escalated further as leader Kim Jong Un warned Donald Trump he would "pay dearly" after the U.S. president threatened the total destruction of North Korea.

According to manning, his office will see to it that the head of state was a means of influencing Pyongyang.

"We think the parties should refrain from escalating words and deeds and avoid adding fuel to the fire", Lu said, responding to a question about what China thought of US President Donald Trump's latest remark in which he said North Korea "won't be around much longer".

The Pentagon defended the right of the United States to conduct the flyovers, following Ri's remarks on Monday.

Ri made the comments to reporters in NY. "However, Trump had ultimately declared war again last weekend, by saying regarding our leadership, that he will make it unable to last longer". Trump responded with mockery, calling Kim "little rocket man".

But after Merkel's government toughened asylum rules and the influx of migrants began to ebb, support for the party weakened. That bridging role used to be Britain's forte because of its traditional special relationship with Washington.

While the officials said the exercises are long scheduled and not in response to recent tensions, similar exercises have prompted strong condemnation from North Korea in the past. "In case innocent lives of the U.S. are harmed because of this suicide attack, Trump will be held totally responsible". He then tweeted on Friday that Kim was "obviously a madman" who would be "tested like never before".

"Today, to resolutely struggle against the USA imperialists regarding aggression and war as their mode of existence serves as a main way of ensuring the peace and security of the world", KCNA said, in a report about a letter to foreign political parties from the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK).

"Given the fact that this comes from someone who is now holding the seat of (the) United States presidency, this is clearly a declaration of war", the foreign minister said.

The US military also sent its own message to Pyongyang on Saturday as B-1B Lancer bombers from Guam and F-15C Eagle fighter escorts from Okinawa, Japan, flew in global airspace over waters east of North Korea, according to the Pentagon. The mission was flown as part of the continuing demonstration of the U.S. commitment to the defense of its homeland and in support of its partners and allies, Defense Department and U.S. Pacific Command officials said. "We are prepared to use the full range of military capabilities to defend the U.S. homeland and our allies".

Kim responded with the first-ever direct statement from a North Korean leader against a US president, lobbing a string of insults at Trump and calling him a "mentally deranged USA dotard", a word to describe an old person who is weak-minded.
