But he said there were questions about North Korea's technical capabilities and Washington did not give "too much credence" to Pyongyang taking such action.

On Thursday, Mr Trump signed an executive order to introduce new sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear weapons programme.

In the course of the speech, Trump said if the United States is "forced to defend itself and its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

In recent months, North Korea has launched a pair of intercontinental missiles believed capable of striking the continental United States and another pair that soared over Japanese territory.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned that "military hysteria" over the nuclear testing would lead to "disaster", while China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Pyongyang not to go in a "dangerous direction".

President Donald Trump claimed Thursday that China has ordered its banks to stop doing business with North Korea - the rogue regime's principal trading partner.

Beijing will also ban imports of textiles from North Korea immediately.

China is North Korea's main trading partner and conduit for global transactions, and Washington has been pushing Beijing to scale back economic and financial ties to further isolate Pyongyang.

"Trump told the U.N. General Assembly this week that the USA will have no choice but to "totally destroy" North Korea if the North continues to threaten the US and its allies, including Asian neighbors South Korea and Japan".

The order was created to dissuade Pyongyang from pursuing its nuclear missile program.

That is about 20km (12m) south-east of where the North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, an official from the Korea Meteorological Administration in Seoul said.

Responding to the speech, Kim said Trump's comments amounted to an insult.

"We can not deny the possibility it may fly over our country", Onodera said Thursday.

The North Korean dictator concluded his comments with a final threat to Trump and the USA: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".

North Korea fired a missile on Friday that flew over Hokkaido in northern Japan and landed far out into the Pacific Ocean, according to Japanese and South Korean officials, further ratcheting up tensions in the region.

Trump didn't call out Russian Federation by name in his speech to the United Nations on Tuesday, though he did obliquely criticize the Kremlin's occupation of Crimea, saying: "We must reject threats to sovereignty from the Ukraine to the South China Sea".

Just 24 hours later North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong-ho said that the country will take the "highest-level" action in response to his threats.
