Perro, I agree with your suggestion. NK is part of he UN despite being a big pain in our rears.
Personally, I feel that Kim is trying to test Trump and find his limits.
He is doing it in a cagey manner which is scaring the 'be jesus' out of us, but is he doing anything really wrong?

Testing a H-bomb in the Pacific is hardly a breach of rules. Can we look back and remember what the French did at Bikini Atoll, and the US and British on other Pacific islands?

Since the UN did nothing against Australia's breach of the asylum agreement, I wonder if we should not just can the UN and start something much more powerful?

Why are some things okay for some,but denied to others? Do as I say,rather than as I do.

Why do America,Russia and others have nuclear weapons? Surely,it is for protection,so why is NK any different?

Let us face the reality, America is the cause of many major
conflicts and ita all about dominance on one side and resources
on the other. in my opinion.

Did you know that South Korea has said it will continue giving humanitarian aid to North Korea despite the sanctions?

Rare Look Inside North Korea's Capital City

TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHYPEOPLE AND CULTURE
Explore the North Korean capital of Pyongyang in this intriguing time-lapse of a city rarely seen by foreigners. Escorted by British-based company Koryo Tours, filmmakers Rob Whitworth and JT Singh offer up typical scenes of daily life in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Although certain limits were placed on what they could film, this short provides glimpses of insider moments, including riding the subway, circling historic monuments, and visiting a local skate park.

It's more modern than most people expect. Notice the DHL delivery van at the end? An American company operating in NK. I wonder how many others there are.

DHL is a german company. Whatever happened to the common economic zone that was set up a few years ago?
South korean companies operating in North korea using north korean workers or sumpin wasn't it?
I find it odd that the immediate neighbours seem to be able to co-exist with the NK but the USA which is thousands of km away is butting heads.
