Senior officials of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) have issued a warning to the United States over the recent actions and words by U.S. President Donald Trump.
 
World News has the details. 
 
The Korean Central News Agency (KNCA) reported on Monday that Ri Su Yong, a senior official of the DPRK's Workers' Party, said that at first glance the recent comments by Trump "sound like a threat." But he went on to say that they are actually corroboration of the fear he feels inside.
 
Ri warned Trump of possible "catastrophic consequences". 
 
Earlier in the day, Kim Yong Chol, also a senior official, made a similar statement, saying that his country has "nothing more to lose."
 
Kim noted that the U.S. should think about how to keep the two countries from clashing, rather than spend time choosing warning expressions.
 
Last Sunday, Trump tweeted that DPRK's top leader Kim Jong Un has "far too much to lose if he acts in a hostile way." 
 
The top leader has set a deadline for the U.S. to offer mutually acceptable terms for a deal by the end of this year, warning that his country may have to seek a "new way."
