Donald Trump launches fresh attack on Barack Obama over North Korea crisis

On Friday, a researcher at the Institute for American Studies at the North Korean Foreign Ministry warned that the joint exercise, as well as a flight by two US B-1B bombers over South Korea on Tuesday, compelled the North to "take military counteraction".

In return, the regime in Pyongyang has threatened missile strikes on U.S. foreign territory in Guam and warned its missles could reach and hit areas across the mainland United States.

North Korea could engage in provocations when Trump visits Japan, South Korea and China in November, according to analysts who spoke to KBS.

North Korea's foreign minister told Russian journalists that Donald Trump lit the "fuse of war" when the U.S. president labelled Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" in a recent speech at the United Nations.

However many will suggest Trump is responsible for the rise in tension with North Korea, given the hawkish rhetoric he has adopted since taking over from Obama.

The area around North Korea's nuclear test base may be destabilized after recent tremors and landslides, Reuters reported, and experts say it may not be used for tests much longer.

Anyone anxious that the United States-North Korea impasse is heading to a nuclear showdown should relax.
