"There are growing forecasts that North Korea may take about one year to integrate an intercontinental ballistic missile and a miniaturized nuclear warhead and deploy it", Yoon said.

Robert Gates warns that the inflammatory statements could lead to military conflictUS President Donald Trump's provocative tweets about North Korea are drawing an outpouring of concern.

In a surprising sign of weakness, the commentary also says that if North Atlantic Treaty Organisation would join the United States in the Korean Peninsula it would "change the balance of forces" against it. Because North Korea is really a world problem, that is beyond just the United States.

Ri told Tass that the North's nuclear weapons represent a deterrent to protect the country from the U.S.

While the new measures also include limitations on the sale of refined petroleum products and crude oil, European Union member states will not provide new work permits to North Korean nationals. However, the new commentary does not talk about attacking the United States, but instead on building up its own defenses. Last month he got China to agree to new U.N. Security Council sanctions on North Korea. "We cannot allow this to happen", Trump said. While it is not unusual for submarines to be active in the region, it is rare for their locations to be disclosed.

"With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, you can say, has lit the wick of a war against us", TASS quoted Ri as saying.

"What I suggest is that the USA consistently sends out a message to North Korea that 'what we want is not a regime change or a preventive war, but a policy change toward your denuclearization, '" Yoon said.

On Tuesday, President Trump met with his national security team and top military leaders to discuss military options against North Korea.

Mr Trump has been tough on North Korea as the regime has fired a series of ballistic missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test in recent months.

"It is the steadfast will of all the service personnel and people of the DPRK to shower fire on the USA which cried out for totally destroying the DPRK and settle accounts with the showdown with the United States that has lasted century after century by dint of unprecedented strategic force", North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told a delegation from Russia's TASS news agency on Wednesday, according to an English dispatch from the North's Korean Central News Agency. No action by the North was observed during the 12-hour mission.
