The North Korean diplomat said that he "feels forced to make comments on someone who calls himself the USA president", adding that "it's fair enough for me to respond in the corresponding tone".

Analysts examining satellite images of North Korea's mountainous test site after the latest nuclear test said they spotted landslides and surface disturbances that were more numerous and widespread than what was seen from any of the five previous tests. Trump wrote on Twitter.

Kim's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said that the North is considering testing "an unprecedented scale hydrogen bomb" over the Pacific in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's threat at the United Nations to "totally destroy" the country.

Mr Trump delivered a combative speech on Tuesday at the UN General Assembly, where he mocked Kim as a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission".

In a statement on Friday, Kim responded by calling the USA head of state "mentally deranged" and a "dotard" who would "pay dearly" for his comments - triggering Trump to describe him as a "madman".

North Korea said its recent nuclear test was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for its developmental intercontinental ballistic missiles.

"Trump is mentally deranged and full of megalomania", Ri explained to the United Nations General Assembly, adding that the US president is the "gravest threat to global peace and security today".

Washington announced tougher restrictions Friday aimed at curbing North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programme, building on new tough United Nations sanctions aimed to choke Pyongyang of cash. Japan and South Korea, the two closest allies of U.S. in the region, have claimed threat from the spree of missile tests conducted by the North.

Still, it was like a nice beer compared to a bottle of champagne - both get you drunk, one just does it better. Kingsman: The Golden Circle officially takes things way too far as anything and everything goes.

But we've been sanctioning Korea for years now.

"In the end you can't sanction North Korea into collapse or compliance".

After a week in which through tweets and a speech before the United Nations General Assembly, Trump introduced the derogatory nickname "Rocket Man" for Kim into worldwide news coverage and left open his prerogative to "totally destroy" North Korea, the president gave no ground on Friday in his public standoff with his adversary's leader. It said the operation showed the seriousness with which it took North Korea's "reckless behavior".

"Trump labeled Kim a "madman" and taunted him as 'rocket man", while in a rare personal statement this week Kim lashed out, and referred to Trump as "mentally deranged" and a "dotard".

That would demonstrate North Korea's claimed thermonuclear capability as a credible threat.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said of today's display of air power: "This is the farthest north of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) any USA fighter or bomber aircraft have flown off North Korea's coast in the 21st century, underscoring the seriousness with which we take (North Korea's) reckless behaviour".

The North has threatened to test a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific. The United States' only test of an operational ballistic missile with a live warhead was sacked from a submarine far out in the Pacific Ocean in 1962.
