Asked to explain 'calm before the storm' remark, Trump talks North Korea

Kim Jong-un and Hyon Song-wol

President Donald Trump has discussed a "range of options" with his top military advisors to respond to North Korea's provocative missile and nuclear tests as two American heavy bombers flew over the Korean peninsula in a show of force against Pyongyang.

Speaking to Russia's state-run TASS news agency, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said his country's nuclear program guaranteed peace and safety in the region and would not be a matter of discussion. "We need to settle the final score, only with a hail of fire, not words".

Trump used his maiden speech to the UN in September to threaten to "destroy" the nuclear-armed nation if Kim did not back down, referring to him as "Rocket Man".

"By his belligerent and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, so to say, lighted the fuse of war against us", said Ri. "We just can't", Trump said in response to the question, adding that China has been very helpful in the situation.

"Our dear supreme leader Kim Jong-un had already sternly warned: the U.S. must act in a reasonable manner and cease attacking us if it does not want to be humiliated in front of the whole world under the weight of our blows", Ri added.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have risen in recent weeks over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and missile programs.

"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of US negotiators", said Trump across two tweets. "Sorry, but only one thing will work!", Trump said, hinting at taking military action against the regime.
