North Korea’s foreign minister responded to Donald Trump’s threat to destroy them by comparing his speech with “the sound of a dog barking”
Ri Yong Ho is currently in the US for the United Nations General Assembly. He declared that he “felt sorry” for Trump’s advisers soon after he held his speech on Tuesday.
“If he was thinking he could scare us with the sound of a dog barking, that’s really a dog dream,” Ri told reporters outside his hotel in New York
In Korean language, a dog dream is something absurd and that does not make any sense.
Trump promised to “totally destroy” North Korea in his debut speech to the UN if it was forced to defend its allies. Trump also tweeted: “Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”
Trump’s threatening message towards another country is a first in the US history.
Trump is about to meet with Japanese Prime Minister and South Korean President on Thursday to discuss the sanctions regime, which is a key part of the Trump administration’s strategy on North Korea. The US hopes that if more countries join their forces and mount enough pressure on North Korea, it will eventually put its nuclear weapons on the negotiating table.
