North Korea could be trying to'pick off allies with the letter according to Euan Graham. Supreme leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un

North Korea's Foreign Affairs Committee has urged Australia to move away from the US President Donald Trump following "heinous and reckless moves." .

In a letter issued to Australia's parliament, reported by the Sydney Morning Herald on Friday, the Foreign Affairs Committee for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said it was a nuclear power that would not back down to threats from US President Donald Trump to destroy it. "It is an extreme act of threatening to totally destroy the whole world", the letter states.

"It doesn't actually say anything about Australia so much".

Turnbull said the letter was "consistent with [North Korea's] ranting and complaining about Donald Trump". It's North Korea that is threatening to fire nuclear missiles at Japan, at South Korea, at the United States. threatening the stability of the world.

In an apparent attempt to scare Australia from acting as America's ally against the North Korean regime's provocations, the letter warns "the US brought to their knees those countries devoid of principle, narrow-minded and selfish countries seeking after their own interests". "The tighter the economic sanctions are applied, the greater prospect we have of resolving that situation without a conflict".

The latest sanctions ban North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates, and cap its crude oil imports.

Bishop said North Korea was trying to "divide those who are committed to ending its illegal nuclear weapons testing and ballistic missile testing".

The letter begins with the North Korean embassy offering its "compliments to the parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia", which is a bit rich given that the rogue nation has made repeated military threats towards us for supporting America.

Ms Bishop said it was the first letter to have ever been sent by North Korea to an Australian foreign minister, calling it a "very unusual" move. North Korea usually communicates through its news agency KCNA.

Officials in Australia have described the letter as a clear sign the Kim Jong-un's country is becoming desperate after a raft of sanctions were placed on it.
