Kim Jong-un warns ‘deranged’ Trump he will ‘pay dearly’ for North Korea threatsKim says he is ‘thinking hard’ about response to Trump’s warningsNorth Korea could respond to Donald Trump’s threats of military action by testing a powerful nuclear weapon in the Pacific Ocean, the country’s foreign minister has said, hours after the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, said the US president would “pay dearly” for threatening to destroy the regime.Ri Yong-ho, who is due to address the UN general assembly at the weekend, told reporters in New York: “It could be the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific. We have no idea about what actions could be taken as it will be ordered by leader Kim Jong-un.”Ri was speaking after Kim said that he was considering retaliating at the “highest level” after Trump warned that the US would “totally destroy North Korea” if it was forced to defend itself or its allies.Earlier this month, North Korea detonated a powerful hydrogen bomb at its Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the north-east of the country. The explosion caused a 6.3 magnitude earthquake that was felt over the Chinese border in Yanji.
