North Korea Nuclear Test Very Dangerous - Trump

US President Donald Trump has described the major nuclear test carried out by North Korea as a very hostile and dangerous actions towards the country.

Trump in a Tweet posted that : "North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test. Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States."

Tensions on the Korean peninsula have spiralled in recent weeks, with North Korea testing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and threatening to fire missiles towards the US Pacific island of Guam and President Donald Trump warning he would rain "fire and fury" on the country.

The US president added that the Asian country has grown to become a great threat to the asian powerhouse, China.

He also noted that the appeasement of the Kim Jo-un lead government won't work.

North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success.

South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!

Meanwhile, countries around the world have swiftly condemned North Korea's announcement that it had tested a hydrogen bomb Sunday, with South Korea calling for the "strongest punishment" against Pyongyang while key ally China strongly condemned it.

Last week the North fired a missile over Japan and into the Pacific.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In called for the "strongest punishment" against the North over its nuclear test, including new UN sanctions to "completely isolate" it.

China, which is hosting a summit of the five BRICS nations, said it "expresses resolute opposition and strong condemnation" over Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test, which was felt in Chinese cities hundreds of kilometres from North Korea's borders.

China, a key provider of aid and trade to the North, is seen as the only country holding any real influence over its truculent neighbour. But relations have become more strained in recent years, in part because of Pyongyang's dogged pursuit of its nuclear programme in the face of international condemnation.

President Xi Jinping and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin remained silent on the subject at the opening of the BRICS summit in Xiamen, which includes Brazil, India and South Africa.
