North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has accused Donald Trump of ‘bluffing’ over threats to take military action against the reclusive nation.

US President Trump called an emergency July 4 meeting to formulate a ‘measured response’ to the North’s first intercontinental ballistic missile test, amid fears it could reach as far as Alaska.
Kim’s spokespeople said the despotic leader was ‘unfazed’ over Trump’s threats and branded the military drills the US military is currently undergoing in Australia as a ‘show of force’.
‘The US is crying out for mounting a military attack on the DPRK,’ they told state-censored newspaper Rodong Sinmun, adding the missile test was an act of ‘self defence’.
They went on: ‘This is just a ridiculous bluffing of those taken aback by the invincible might of the DPRK… The DPRK remains unfazed by the desperate moves of the US to stifle it.’
The US is currently undergoing a military exercise with Australia in north Queensland, in what is the largest joint exercise by the Australian Defence Force and the American military.
‘It is a manifestation of stupidity that the US works hard to check the victorious advance of the service personnel and people of the DPRK,’ Kim’s henchmen said of the drills.
‘The US is gravely mistaken if it arrogantly thinks that even a single shell should never be dropped on its mainland while carpet-bombing other countries.’
Trump spoke out against North Korea after Kim declared the country had finally achieved its dream of building a rocket that would ‘fundamentally put an end to the US nuclear war threat and blackmail’.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later confirmed the latest missile test was with an intercontinental ballistic missile.
And Tillerson says that’s a new escalation of the threat posed to the United States and the world by North Korea.
The launch, which came as the United States prepared to mark its Independence Day, triggered a Twitter outburst from Trump who urged China to ‘put a heavy move’ on North Korea to ‘end this nonsense once and for all’.
The US has requested a closed-door meeting of the United Nations Security Council on North Korea’s latest missile launch, a spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations says.
Potential responses included sending additional troops to the region and possibly more sanctions.
North Korea has long sought to build a rocket capable of delivering an atomic warhead to the United States – something Trump has vowed ‘won’t happen’.
