N. Korea threatens to turn U.S. into 'sea of flames'

SEOUL, Sept. 30 (Yonhap) -- North Korea called on the United States Saturday to halt what it claimed to be a hostile policy toward Pyongyang, threatening to turn America into a "sea of flames."

In a statement, an unidentified spokesman for the North's Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee strongly condemned U.S. President Donald Trump for signing an "executive order on sanctions on North Korea" following the North's sixth and latest nuclear test, staged Sept. 3.

"The more reckless behavior of Trump ignorant of himself and the rival will only harden the retaliatory will of the army and people of the DPRK against the U.S. It will precipitate the doomsday of the U.S. Trump should bear this in mind," the statement, carried by the North's Korean Central News Agency, said.

DPRK stands for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"We once again warn the old psychopath of America against his hysteria. His brandishing of 'sanctions' club and muscle-flexing with tiger moth-like bombers before the fire-ready revolutionary forces of the DPRK is just a suicidal act of inviting a nuclear disaster that will reduce America into a sea of flames," it added.

The statement comes despite repeated warnings from the U.S. leader for Pyongyang to stop making threats, saying his country will have no choice but to totally destroy the communist state if forced to defend itself or its allies.
