'Very Hostile': US President Donald Trump Reacts To North Korea Nuke Test

US President Donald Trump's comments came after Pyongyang conducted its sixth nuclear test

Washington:  US President Donald Trump declared Sunday that "appeasement with North Korea" will not work, after Pyongyang claimed it had  successfully tested a missile-ready hydrogen bomb.

"North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test," Trump said. "Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States."

His comments came hours after the US Geological Survey picked up a 6.3 magnitude "explosion" in North Korea, which Pyongyang confirmed was a nuclear test, its sixth.

North Korea said it can mount the Hydrogen bomb on it's ballistic missile

The isolated regime said this one was of a hydrogen bomb that could be fitted atop a ballistic missile, sharply raising the stakes in a US-North Korea confrontation. 

Trump last month threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" if it continued to threaten the United States, but he refrained from direct threats in his latest tweets.

"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!" he said.

"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."
