North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho will hold a press conference at 11 p.m.

In addressing the UN General Assembly on Saturday, Ri lambasted US President Donald Trump for his earlier UN address in which he warned that North Korea would face destruction if it attacks the US or its allies.

In his address, Ri said that North Korea would take "merciless" actions at any sign of military aggression against the country or its leadership. Ri also told reporters that a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific could be carried out.
