U.S. President Donald Trump warned Tuesday that North Korea will be met with "fire and fury" if it continues to threaten his country, according to news reports.

Trump, who receives daily intelligence briefings, would presumably be in a position to know whether USA intelligence officials have reason to believe Kim Jong Un's regime in fact did load cruise missiles onto a patrol boat recently.

Trump made the remarks hours after a Washington Post report cited an assessment by the Defense Intelligence Agency concluding Pyongyang had miniaturized a nuclear warhead that could be delivered by its missiles.

North Korea vowed yesterday that tough new UN sanctions would not stop it from developing its nuclear arsenal, rejecting talks and angrily threatening retaliation against the United States. At other times President Trump seemed to think that China could be easily induced to pressure North Korea to abandon its nuclear ambitions.

North Korea said the sanctions infringed its sovereignty and it was ready to give Washington a "severe lesson" with its strategic nuclear force in response to any USA military action.

Concerns were heightened late last month when tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile indicated Pyongyang may be within a year or two of obtaining the technology to reach the usa with nuclear missiles.

Munir told that the Pakistani terrorist Ismail of the LeT had carried out the attack in collaboration with two other terrorists. Khan said they have already zeroed in on the four actual perpetrators of the attack and will "neutralise" them soon.


According to a US official briefed on the assessment, this milestone does not mean North Korea has a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) as they must show the weapon can survive reentry.

Officials at the agency would not comment Tuesday.

Two officials familiar with the document, which was completed last month, verified the contents to the Post.

"The nation's state-run news agency responded that "(North Korea) will make the USA pay dearly for all the heinous crimes it commits against the state and people of this country".

When the conditions are right, the two sides can sit and discuss the future of North Korea "so that they feel secure and prosper economically", he told reporters in Manila earlier Monday.

USA stocks fell, with the S&P 500 at a session low after Trump's comment, while a widely followed measure of stock market anxiety spiked higher and was on track to close at a one-month high. It's frighteningly relevant now, as Trump levels threats against North Korea.
