President Trump on Sunday responded to North Korea’s nuclear test, calling it “very hostile and dangerous” to the United States.

The rogue nation claimed it detonated a hydrogen bomb with “perfect success,” carrying out its sixth nuclear test that drew immediate condemnation from its neighbors. Trump said on Twitter the rogue nation’s actions were “hostile and dangerous.”

“North Korea has conducted a major nuclear test,” Trump said in a series of tweet. “Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States.”

North Korea in recent months has escalated its pursuit of a nuclear weapon and a long-range missile that would land such a warhead on foreign soil.

Such efforts have also sparked a war of words between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that has created global concerns about either side taking military action in response.

“North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success,” Trump also tweeted Sunday.

“South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Just hours before, North Korean newspaper published photos of dictator Kim Jong Un appearing to examine what it said was a nuclear warhead being fitted onto the nose of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe immediately condemned the test, calling it “absolutely unacceptable.” South Korea’s National Security Director Chung Eui-yong said Sunday President Moon Jae-in is looking to respond to the test with the strongest measures possible. He said Moon will seek every available diplomatic measure, including new sanctions from the United Nations Security Council.

South Korea will also talk with the U.S. in deploying the “strongest strategic assets,” though he did not specify what that specifically meant.

In July, North Korea conducted its first ever ICBM tests, a stunning jump in progress for the country’s nuclear and missile program since Kim took power in 2011. The volatile regime launched a missile that flew over Japan before it splashed down into the sea last week.

Trump issued a stern response to the tests early August and vowed to unleash “fire and fiery.” In return, North Korea said it intended to attack Guam, a U.S. territory and the home to key U.S. military bases. The North eventually pulled back its “plan” to launch missiles toward Guam, though Kim eerily said last week’s missile launch was a “meaningful prelude” to eventually containing the U.S. territory.

David Albright, President of the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, wrote in a report last month “developing thermonuclear weapons was declared priority of North Korea.”

“It appears capable of developing thermonuclear weapons. It is far more likely to be working on one-stage thermonuclear weapons rather than traditional two-stage thermonuclear weapons, or ‘H-Bombs,'” Albright wrote.

Sunday’s test was estimated to have a yield of 100 kilotons, meaning a blast that was four to five times more powerful than the explosion in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1945, a South Korean defense official told the country’s Yonhap News Agency.

  8. Nokia wouldn’t have done anything wrong if they were still in the paper making business(toilet paper to be exact).
    Mobile phone is hi-tech, therefore disruptions happen more
    frequently and at shorter intervals. However, just like BlackBerry, I’m sure there’s a lot of internal
    conflicts about whether or not to ditch Symbian. Asian hardware manufacturers never had the software
    dilemma, they simply continued the win-tel model and changed to qual-droid model.
    Now, there were ways to remedy Nokia’s problem, but they were
    not fast enough. Their products remain unchanged until Windows smartphone.

  9. You’re so awesome! I do not believe I have read a single thing like this before.
    So great to discover someone with a few original
    thoughts on this subject matter. Seriously.. thanks for starting this up.

    This website is something that is needed on the internet, someone with some originality!
