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

To comply with a UN Security Council resolution calling for sanctions over North Korea's nuclear activity, China said Friday that it will limit its exports of refined petroleum products to Pyongyang as well as ban imports of the North's textiles.

Ri echoed Trump's words Saturday, saying it is the US president who "is on a suicide mission".

The natural disaster was detected in an area around Kilju, in north-east North Korea.

Ri warned Pyongyang was ready to defend itself if the US showed any sign of conducting a "decapitating operation on our headquarters or military attack against our country". Ri warned Pyongyang was ready to defend itself if the U.S. showed any sign of conducting a "decapitating operation on our headquarters or military attack against our country".

"This event occurred in the area of the previous North Korean Nuclear tests".

OPEC continues to monitor the impact of production cuts
Marco Dunand , chief executive officer for Mercuria , said, "The market is selling inventories from everywhere". OPEC and its allies have been considering extending the deal beyond the end of March when it is due to expire.

'Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!' the president tweeted. Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test on September 3 and has launched dozens of missiles this year as it accelerates a program aimed at enabling it to target the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

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

The U.S. characterized the flights as extending farther north of the Demilitarized Zone, than any U.S. fighter or bomber had gone off the North Korean coast in the 21st century.

"None other than Trump himself is on a suicide mission", Ri said in broad denunciation of Trump that brought applause from the North Korean delegation.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) have said they are unable to make a decision as to what may have caused this quake on Saturday. Said to be a "suspected explosion", it raised fears Kim Jong-un's regime had conducted another nuclear test.

The weekend saw an escalation in the war of words between Washington and Pyongyang, complete with a US show of military might over the waters near North Korea and jitters over what seismologists say was an natural disaster near a North Korean nuclear test site. "In this case we saw none".

The quake, which South Korea's Meteorological Agency put at magnitude 3.0, was detected 49 km from Kilju in North Hamgyong Province, where North Korea's known Punggye-ri nuclear site is located, the official said.

"It could be a natural quake that really was man-made as the nuclear test would have transferred a lot of stress", he said. The USGS measured this month's nuclear test at magnitude 6.3. At the United Nations, Trump called Kim "rocket man" and threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea.

North Korea has been maintaining a torrid pace in nuclear and weapons tests as it accelerates its pursuit of nuclear weapons that could viably target the United States and its allies in Asia.
