"Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down the United States' strategic bombers even when they're not yet inside the airspace border of our country".

We have been here before with North Korea though: it is important to remember that the two halves of Korea never actually made peace.

China also disapproved of the escalation of the war of words between the United States and North Korea, Lu told a daily news briefing in Beijing.

However, Lu noted that the Trump administration denied that it had declared war on North Korea and said the US remained committed to eliminating nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula through peaceful means.

But with the North now possessing an enhanced nuclear capability, the possibility of awful destruction in South Korea, Japan and perhaps even the US West Coast has increased dramatically.

"It would be an incredibly provocative thing for them to conduct a nuclear test in the Pacific as they have suggested, and I think the North Korean people would have to realise how serious that would be, not only for the United States but for the global community", Dunford said.

On Tuesday, the administration designated eight North Korean banks, including Agricultural Development Bank, Cheil Credit Bank and International Industrial Bank. The president put the world on notice, telling countries they can do business with the USA or North Korea, but not both.


The Trump administration is using new sanctions authority to punish eight North Korean banks and 26 bank workers living overseas.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Beijing hopes that USA and North Korean politicians can realise that resorting to military means would never be a viable way out.

"We are targeting North Korean banks and financial facilitators acting as representatives for North Korean banks across the globe", Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement Tuesday.

Speaking in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said war on the Korean Peninsula would have no victor.

In terms of a sense of urgency, "North Korea certainly poses the greatest threat today", Dunford testified.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in urged Kim Jong Un to resume military talks and reunions of families split by the 1950-53 Korean War to ease tension.
