The United States has called on the international community to cut all diplomatic and trade ties with North Korea. Washington urged tough action as emergency talks on the North’s latest provocation opened in the UN Security Council — and after US President Donald Trump derided Kim Jong-Un as a “sick puppy” and threatened “major” new sanctions.
Just yesterday, North Korea testfired their most advanced missile. The country tested its third intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) — which it claimed was capable of striking anywhere in the United States — snapping a two-month pause in missile launches.
North Korean leader Kim said the test of the Hwasong-15 weapons system had helped his country achieve the goal of becoming a full nuclear power, as the international community expressed outrage.
