Russian Federation accuses United States of 'bloodthirsty tirade' over threat to destroy North Korea

A nuke hitting New York could leave 710,870 dead

Tillerson on Thursday welcomed Chinese efforts on North Korea, but said Beijing could do more to limit its oil exports to the country.

Since taking office in June, Kang traveled to South Korea's most important neighbors - the United States, Russia and China - except for Japan.

But her call for nations to "cut off all ties with North Korea" was rejected by Moscow, with foreign minister Sergei Lavrov saying Russian Federation saw the proposal "negatively".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un watches the launch of a Hwasong-12 missile, September 16.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha is planning to make her first visit to Japan as Seoul's top diplomat later this month to discuss cooperation on reining in North Korean military threats and ways to resolve the countries' historical feud, diplomatic sources said Friday.

North Korea's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile that some observers believe could reach Washington and the entire east coast of the United States "brings us closer" to a war, U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley has warned.

Tal Inbar, the head of the space research center at the Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies, observed on Twitter that the reentry vehicle, or the tip of the missile that must return down to earth, was "HUGE". North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) said that the Hwasong-15 missile had covered a distance of 950 kilometers during its 53-minute flight, reaching an altitude of 4,475 kilometers.

North Korea tested a new ICBM, which Pyongyang claims is capable of reaching any target in the continental United States. Elleman estimates that the missiles would struggle even to reach the US's west coast with a reasonably size nuclear warhead aboard.

USA sanctions against North Korea were bolstered last week after the Trump administration declared North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism.

"Anything beyond that is not the priority at this point", she said, responding to a question on whether regime change was on the administration's agenda after Trump's recent tweets and a speech by U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

But North Korea just showed a domestically made missile and missile launcher.

In short, it showed that even with the Trump administration's "maximum pressure" policy, aircraft carriers nearby, and U.S. jets buzzing around, it seems on track to build a credible nuclear weapon. They got it no matter how badly we wanted to stop them.

Trump has pledged more sanctions in response to the latest test and, at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting late Wednesday, the United States warned North Korea's leadership would be "utterly destroyed" if war were to break out.

"We have never sought war with North Korea and still today we do not seek it".

The US has repeatedly said that it will not accept North Korea as a nuclear power and that it will consider military intervention to stop it.
