Trump Talks Tough on DPRK, Iran in Debut UN Address

UNITED NATIONS - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday pressured the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to give up its nuclear weapons program and signaled a possible end of the Iran nuclear deal in his first speech at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly.
BLAST ON DPRK
In his over-40-minute speech, Trump talked tough on the DPRK, warning that the United States "will have no choice than to totally destroy" the country unless Pyongyang refrains from its nuclear tests and missile launches.
Trump, who tossed threats against the DPRK in his tweets in the past months, said at the UN that DPRK leader Kim Jong Un was "on a suicide mission for himself and his regime."
Tension on the Korean Peninsula has been escalating following a series of missile launches and the Sept. 3 nuclear test conducted by Pyongyang.
The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution on Sept. 11 to impose new sanctions on the DPRK over its latest nuclear test.
However, the Korean Peninsula crisis should be solved through a political process, said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in his debut address to the UN General Assembly, just minutes before Trump's remarks. (Xinhua)
