The White House is pushing back against a claim from North Korea by saying, "We have not declared war" on the country.

North Korea's foreign minister said on Monday President Donald Trump had declared war on North Korea and that Pyongyang reserved the right to take countermeasures, including shooting down USA bombers even if they are not in its air space.
Following Ri's own fiery speech at the United Nations over the weekend, the president had tweeted that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and his regime "won't be around much longer".
Ri, who said North Korea was prepared to test a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean, told the United Nations on Friday that Trump's disrespect toward Kim made it "inevitable" that rockets would "visit" the US mainland.
The foreign minister opened his brief remarks in Korean by saying that over the last few days, the U.N. and the global community have clearly wished "that the war of words between the DPRK and the United States will not turn into real action".

In its defence, North Korea says the nuclear capabilities are only the deterrents against outside threats.
"We certainly hope that (the United States and North Korea) will see that there is no other way than negotiations to solve the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula".
The North Korean Foreign Minister had addressed the UNGA session on Saturday.
