North Korea also turned its focus on Australia at the weekend, warning the United States ally of the risks of siding with Trump.

Some analysts suggested that North Korea might have been looking for the flawless time to maximize its impact of provocation, this time around when China holds the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party on Oct 18.
Australia's Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told reporters her country is committed to the North's denuclearization through diplomacy but is also ready for military action alongside the US.
Bishop said that the threat of war is now the greatest it has been in 60 years since the Korean War. "We hope not, but this seems to have been a pattern of behaviour".
