Trump on Monday said in his speech at the United Nations summit in NY that if the U.S. is forced to defend itself or its allies, "we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

China's move to halt North Korean coal imports in February and its decision to stop selling fuel have crimped Pyongyang's ability to raise hard currency through exports.
