The likelihood of the DPRK and their threats to test the most powerful hydrogen bomb in response to the speech of the President of the United States Donald trump is negligible; Pyongyang in the absence of other forms of diplomatic pressure on the West has always used the outrageous rhetoric and has repeatedly threatened to destroy the United States, head of the Department of Oriental studies of MGIMO (University) of the MFA of Russia, RIAC expert Dmitry Streltsov.

Earlier, speaking at the UN, trump called the North Korean leader a «man-missile, who is on a mission suicide». The American leader also said that if North Korea would pose a threat to the United States, it will be destroyed. On Friday morning released a statement, Kim Jong-UN in which he called trump’s speech at the UN «crazy nonsense», the American President — «senile» and promised «to take the most stringent in the history of countermeasures.» Then in new York the Minister of foreign Affairs of North Korea Lee Yong-Ho said that the possible responses to speech trump may be the most powerful hydrogen bomb tests in the Pacific.

According to Streltsov, the probability that the DPRK will carry out their threat, «close to zero». «Because, of course, I think that North Korea is not suicidal and nobody wants mutual destruction,» he told RIA Novosti.

According to experts, Pyongyang is looking for a formula «to provide guarantees of survival,» which is manifested in a «somewhat shocking.» «It seems to me that such statements do not cause much surprise, because North Korea has long been uses extremely outrageous vocabulary in their foreign policy statements and in its foreign policy rhetoric, and not just in rhetoric, but in some propaganda various statements, using very sharp, I would say, bordering on decency of statements,» — said the Agency interlocutor.

According to him, customary rules of diplomatic etiquette for well-known for his short temper Pyongyang does not apply. Streltsov noted that «this is a fairly long-standing practice,» the goal is not so much to show the seriousness of the DPRK, as in a certain degree to give a signal to their own people. «At a time when North Korea has no other use diplomatic pressure on other countries to the West and so on, in this case North Korea uses this kind of language», he added.

The expert stressed that after the next nuclear tests and missile launches, the exchange of statements between the DPRK and the United States «is just a higher level of this kind of rhetoric and mutual insults, mutual dive». «We can recall that North Korean leaders have repeatedly promised to destroy the United States and even showed a video where the White house is destroying a nuclear explosion, so I think that there is nothing particularly extraordinary there,» — concluded the archers.

The DPRK said on September 3 about the successful test of a hydrogen warhead, which is designed to equip Intercontinental ballistic missiles. The military of Japan and South Korea have previously estimated the power of the tested charge 160 kilotons, which is about 10 times the power of the atomic bombs dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima in 1945. It was the sixth nuclear test by Pyongyang. The week before the DPRK tested a ballistic missile that flew over Japan’s territory. In connection with these events, the UN security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions against the DPRK, which will significantly limit the export and import capabilities of Pyongyang. Resolution 2375 set the most stringent UN sanctions regime in the twenty-first century.
