Now, a senior official from the North Korean Foreign Ministry has suggested that the United States take its threats seriously because Mr Ri is in close contact with leader Kim Jong-un.
Ripley quoted a senior North Korean official as saying its threat to conduct the "strongest hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean" should be taken at face value.
The remarks were made a few hours after President Trump threatened to "totally destroy" the country in a speech to the UN. "If you think this will lead to diplomacy, you're deeply mistaken". "North Korea, through both its words and actions, threatens and undermines global peace and security".
Ri also pushed back on the US strategy of attempting to pressure the rogue regime into diplomacy.
The United States and North Korea have always been engaged in back-and-forth barbs over the latter's threat of a nuclear attack. Defense Secretary James Mattis had said weeks earlier that North Korea risked "total annihilation" if it continued to defy the world and threaten allies.
That statement likely ratcheted up tensions between the two countries as both exchanged fiery rhetoric and the United Nations slapped additional sanctions on North Korea.
"The US is talking about a military option and even practicing military moves".
Experts assessed this threat to mean that North Korea would fire a missile with a live nuclear bomb over the Pacific and detonate in the atmosphere above the ocean.
"What can not be overlooked", the DPRK's Ja said, "is the fact that the United States, not being contented with the joint military exercise on the Korean peninsula, is kicking up the racket of military pressure upon the DPRK on a worldwide scale and is becoming more undisguised in its attempt to introduce North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and other armed forces of its followers into the Korean peninsula in case of emergency". "There's a certain amount of bluster that's taken for granted when you're dealing with North Korea", a Trump administration official told Reuters.
The U.S. wants North Korea to understand that there is a "different path it can choose", Choi said.
