North Korea writes letter to Australia warning about Donald Trump's 'heinous moves'

North Korea writes letter to Australia warning about Donald Trump's 'heinous moves'

Amid escalating tensions with North Korea over its aggressive missile tests and development of nuclear warheads, combined with sabre-rattling from Donald Trump, 72 per cent of the population fears the country will become embroiled in such a war within four years.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the letter was nothing more than a "rant" consistent with North Korea's previous complaints against President Trump.

Touting North Korea's nuclear might, the letter states Trump's threats are "a big miscalculation and an expression of ignorance", and called for Australia's "sharp vigilance against the heinous and reckless moves of the Trump administration".

The letter labels the global sanctions regime "illegal", accusing the United Nations security council of breaching the United Nations charter and North Korea's right to "normal economic development".

Trump threatened to totally destroy the DPRK, a dignified independent and sovereign state and nuclear power.

Leicester, who have not won away from home in the league this season, travel to Swansea on Saturday. The group is very positive despite a tough start to the season.

The letter, which is titled "Open Letter to Parliaments of Different Countries", was drafted by North Korea's Foreign Affairs Committee, and was dispatched to the North Korean embassy in Jakarta before reaching Australia.

"They've sent it to a lot of other countries, like a circular letter", he said. "It's basically a rant about how bad Donald Trump is", Turnbull told Melbourne radio 3AW.

"The fact of the matter is that North Korea is the one who is in in breach of United Nations security council resolutions".

North Korea has launched new violent threats against the US and South Korea overnight, promising that any nations that provoke or invade the country would "meet the most miserable death".

'That is the regime that has to return to its senses and stop this reckless conduct'.

Green Bay plans to start second-year quarterback Brett Hundley this week against the Saints. But the decision by the team Friday signals that's in all likelihood not a possibility.

"This is a response to the pressure", she said. "The tighter the economic sanctions are applied, the greater prospect we have of resolving that situation without a conflict".

"I read this as showing that the collective strategy of allies and partners to impose maximum pressure and diplomatic and economic sanctions on North Korea is working; this is a very unusual step of issuing an open letter of this character".

At the time Ms Bishop, who was in South Korea with Defence Minister Marise Payne for talks with their South Korean counterparts, hit back and said Australia was not a "primary target".

"This is evidence, I believe, that our collective worldwide strategy is working".
