MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US President Donald Trump went on to exchange threats with Pyongyang on Sunday, referring to the country's leader as "Little Rocket Man" again.
"Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!" Trump wrote on his Twitter page.

On Saturday, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said in his address to the UN General Assembly that Trump would face the negative consequences of his remarks about North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un. In particular, the Minister said that Trump's policy would make "our rockets' visit to the entire US mainland inevitable all the more."
North Korea has been continuously performing missile launches and nuclear tests, all conducted in violation of UN Security Council resolutions. The most recent test was made on September 15, when North Korea launched a ballistic missile, which flew over Japan before falling into the northern Pacific some 20 minutes after the launch.
