President Donald Trump on Thursday announced he would impose new sanctions on North Korea amid the ongoing standoff between Washington, its allies and Pyongyang.

“Yes, we will be putting more sanctions on North Korea,” Trump said at a meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in New York in response to a question whether his administration would add punitive measures against Pyongyang.

Tensions over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs have escalated in recent months as Pyongyang has test-launched a number of projectiles which flew over Japan and triggered global criticism. On Monday, the US president said Washington would “have no choice than to totally destroy North Korea” if immediate threats emerge.

n early September Pyongyang tested a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded into an intercontinental ballistic missile which became Pyongyang’s sixth nuclear test.

Earlier, as a response to the potential use of nuclear weapons, the United States sent a strike group led by US aircraft carrier Carl Vinson to the Korean Peninsula in early April, where it held exercises with the South Korean navy.
