"They have sent it to a lot of other countries", said the Australian leader without mentioning any other country's name.

"If Trump thinks that he would bring the DPRK, a nuclear power, to its knees through nuclear war threat, it will be a big miscalculation and an expression of ignorance".

The DPRK has emerged as a full-fledged nuclear power which has a strong nuclear arsenal and various kinds of nuclear delivery means made by dint of self-reliance and self-development.

'(North Korea) bitterly condemns the reckless remarks of Trump as an intolerable insult to the Korean people, a declaration of war against the DPRK and a grave threat to the global peace, ' the letter read. North Korea sent letters last month to parliaments around the world, after President Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea, if necessary, during a speech at the United Nations.

The letter, which is titled "Open Letter to Parliaments of Different Countries", was drafted by North Korea's Foreign Affairs Committee, and was dispatched to the North Korean embassy in Jakarta before reaching Australia.

North Korea's foreign minister responded by threatening to drop a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean. It is an extreme act of threatening to totally destroy the whole world.

"That's the regime that has to return to its senses, to stop this reckless conduct, and that's why we're imposing sanctions".

But Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull believes the letter from North Korea was not only for Australia as it did not state anything about Down Under.

Regardless, Bishop says the weird, weird move is "showing that the collective strategy of allies and partners to impose maximum pressure and diplomatic and economic sanctions on North Korea is working".

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

Fairfax published North Korea's letter, which reportedly came from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Foreign Affairs Committee.

'This is effectively an invitation to have high level access, to send an [Australian] delegation from Seoul, ' Dr Graham said.
