North Korea has been quickly developing nuclear weapons, and the USA agreed to the UN’s decision to increase economic sanctions against the country.

In response, North Korea’s regime said that the sanctions would be met with ‘thousand-fold revenge’ and threatened the USA. President Trump said that ‘North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States’ or the country would be met with ‘fire and fury’.
