Trump signs new executive sanctions on North Korea

Last month, when the standoff between North Korea and the United States over Pyongyang's ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programs reached its peak, Trump threatened North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with "fire and fury the world has never seen".

"The order also includes measures created to disrupt critical North Korean shipping and trade networks", Trump said, calling for a "complete denuclearization" of Kim Jong Un's regime.

US President Donald Trump's statement at the UN General Assembly on totally destroying North Korea in case of a threat is inadmissible and is a provocation in military terms, Russia's Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov said on Wednesday.

He made the announcement on Thursday during a working lunch with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Similarly, Mattis walked back some of the president's recent comments on North Korea, assuring journalists that there is always room for diplomacy, after the president wrote on Twitter that the time for talks is over.

He explained that the executive order enhances the Treasury Department's authority to target any individual or entity that conducts significant trade with North Korea.

The greatest unknown surrounding tensions with North Korea is whether Donald Trump will reach breaking point and decide to attack with the military, according to a security lecturer. "I fully support the efforts on searching for a peaceful solution taken by [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and [Chinese President] Xi Jinping and many responsible politicians". But I think we all know that basically if North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed.
