North Korea on Sunday claimed that it had successfully conducted a hydrogen bomb test, its most powerful nuclear test so far, becoming a cause of concern for nearby nations and the United States.

As North Korean state media announced that the thermonuclear test was a "perfect success" they also stated that the hydrogen bomb can be installed on top of a missile which has the capability of reaching the US mainland.

In a series of tweets, United States President Donald Trump condemned the nuclear test, saying "North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test. Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States."

He added "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."

As President Trump had said earlier, he reiterated that talking with North Korea would not work, and said "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!"

Last month, Trump had warned that the U.S. military was “locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely” and that the U.S. would unleash “fire and fury” on the North if it continued to threaten America. However, in the wake of the recent nuclear test by North Korea, when Trump was asked by reporters about attacking North Korea he responded saying "we'll see".

While President Trump is conducting meetings with military officials, on twitter he revealed that the US is considering further economic sanctions by stopping all trade with any country that does business with North Korea.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin meeting on the sidelines of the BRICS summit in China are expected “to adhere to the goal of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, have close communication and coordination and properly respond” to the test.

In the past, economic sanctions against North Korea have failed to work.
