Trump says putting more sanctions on North Korea

New York:  US President Donald Trump today said that he was putting more sanctions on North Korea, the country which has been carrying ballistic missile and nuclear tests in violation of the UN Security Council resolutions.

His statement comes two days after he warned North Korea of “total destruction” if its leader Kim Jong-Un, whom he mockingly described as a “Rocket Man”, continued with his provocative behaviour.

“We will be putting more sanctions on North Korea,” Trump told reporters in response to a question during his bilateral meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

North Korea fired a missile over Japan earlier this month and tested a hydrogen bomb, prompting Trump to insist that “all options were on the table” in an implied threat of pre- emptive military action. In his maiden address to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump said that no nation on Earth has an interest in seeing “this band of criminals” arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles.

The UN Security Council recently held two unanimous 15- to-0 votes adopting hard-hitting resolutions against North Korea, he said.
