In an unprecedented warning delivered at a world forum, United States President Donald Trump on September 19 threatened North Korea with total destruction if his country is forced to defend itself and its allies against the threats from Pyongyang.

 

US President Donald Trump dubbed North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "rocket man" when speaking to his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in by phone on Sunday, and then posted the nickname on Twitter. Such mockery may have an adverse impact on solving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.

 

Hamas’s decision to dissolve the Gaza administrative committee and hold talks with Fatah is the strongest signal yet from the Islamist group that it is ready to cooperate in finding common ground with its political rival.

 

The world has never seen such a crisis. North Korea not only antagonizes the US, but also pours disdain on the authority of the UN Security Council.

 

United States President Donald Trump has derided the UN as a good-time club for chatting, but on September 18 he is making his debut at the UN headquarters in New York by convening a summit to back Secretary-General Antonio Guterres's efforts to reform the creaky global organisation.

 

North Korea launched a new ballistic missile on Friday morning, which Japanese and South Korean reports said flew over Hokkaido, Japan before falling into the Pacific, traveling 3,700 kilometers. The launch is the first since North Korea's sixth nuclear test and the new UN sanctions on Pyongyang.

 

After he lost the US presidential election to George W. Bush despite winning the popular vote, Al Gore introduced himself at a public function as “the man who was going to be President”.

 

The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution to impose new sanctions on North Korea Monday.

 

The Security Council unanimously voted on September 11 a fresh round of sanctions to punish North Korea for its nuclear and missile programmes, but the measures sought by the United States were blunted by China and Russia.

 

A nail-biting Iranian-Syrian World Cup qualifier has sent political ripples far beyond the Azadi Stadium’s soccer pitch in Tehran.
