The United States is considering stopping "all trade" with any country doing business with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday.
The threat came after DPRK's official media has announced that the country had successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb capable of being carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
In an earlier tweet, Trump called the words and actions of the DPRK "very hostile and dangerous" to the United States.
Trump also said he will be meeting with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and other military leaders at the White House to discuss the DPRK issue.
Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Sunday, expressing firm opposition to and strong condemnation of the nuclear test by the DPRK.
"The DPRK has ignored the international community's widespread opposition and conducted a nuclear test again. The Chinese government expresses resolute objection to and strong condemnation of it," the ministry's statement said.
