China's August trade with North Korea surges after United Nations sanctions

  • What really happens in the event of a nuclear strike?

South Korea's weather agency said a magnitude 3.2 earthquake was detected in North Korea on Saturday close to where the country recently conducted a nuclear test, but it assessed the quake as natural.

Regional experts differed on their analysis of the tremor, with China's China Earthquake Network Centre (CENC) service calling it a "suspected explosion", while Seoul's Korea Meteorological Agency (KMA) judged it a "natural quake".

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Sunday President Trump does not want to get involved in a nuclear war with North Korea, despite the escalating feud between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. At the United Nations, Trump called Kim "rocket man" and threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea.

For reference, the USA agency recorded a 6.3 magnitude quake after North Korea's hydrogen bomb test on September 3, its sixth of a nuclear weapon.

"The USGS said that their seismologists confirmed it happened at a depth of 5KM and said, We can not conclusively confirm at this time the nature [natural or human made] of the event".

North Korea has refused to stop its missile and nuclear tests, despite successive rounds of United Nations sanctions.

USA bombers and fighter escorts have flown to the farthest point north of the border between North and South Korea by any such American aircraft this century in a show of military might, the Pentagon said.

North Korean has launched two medium range ballistic missiles over Japan in recent weeks, and has threatened an attack on Guam.

The US president responded by saying Mr Ri and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "won't be around much longer" if they continue their rhetoric.

Park said analysts could not rule out the possibility that a natural quake occurred because of a nuclear test.

North Korea has said it intends to build a missile capable of striking all parts of the United States with a nuclear bomb.

"The president has said all the options are on the table".

"It is a foolish misjudgment if Trump's gang thinks that America is safe because it's far away from the Korean Peninsula".

The Commerce Ministry in Beijing said that starting on October 1, China would limit supplies of refined petroleum products, local media reports.

And it's possible that North Korea is able to undermine them.

A ban on textile imports from the North will go into effect immediately, the statement said.

The US bombers' flight was the farthest north of the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea that any US fighter jet or bomber has flown in the 21st century, the Pentagon said.

"We resolutely condemned the nuclear missile adventures of Pyongyang in violation of Security Council resolutions, but military hysteria is not just an impasse, it's a disaster", Lavrov said in a speech at the UN General Assembly.
