North Korea's top diplomat has called US President Donald Trump's speech to the UN "the sound of a barking dog." Speaking to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, Trump said he would "totally destroy" North Korea if it posed a threat to the US or its allies. Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho's comments were North Korea's first official response to the speech. Ri told reporters near the UN headquarters in New York: "There is a saying that goes: 'Even when dogs bark, the parade goes on.'"
"If [Trump] was thinking about surprising us with the sound of a barking dog then he is clearly dreaming."
When asked what he thought of Trump calling Kim [Jong Un] "rocket man", Ri responded: "I feel sorry for his aides."
