China's official Xinhua news agency said the epicentre was roughly at the same place as a similar shallow natural disaster on 3 September, which turned out to be caused by North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear test.
South Korea approved a plan on Thursday to send $8 million worth of aid to North Korea, as China warned the crisis on the Korean peninsula was getting more serious by the day.
Park Jong-shin, an analyst for the agency, agreed the latest earthquakes could have been closely related to the sixth nuclear test.
But the North Korean leader said remarks by the "deranged" U.S. president convinced him he is right to develop weapons for North Korea.
It couldn't say how the seismic activity occurred.
President Donald Trump added economic action to his fiery military threats against North Korea, authorizing stiffer new sanctions in response to the Koreans' nuclear weapons advances.
Trump will surely not appreciate the language, but it's a far cry from North Korean anger at full force.
Meanhwhile, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his U.S. counterpart Trump have exchanged strong words for each other.
Ri was to give a speech at the U.N. General Assembly on Friday, according toYonhap news agency. "Rather than hurl threats and try to pass the buck to China, the U.S. should accept its responsibility, and do more to resolve the issue through dialogue and negotiation".

"This new executive order will authorize Treasury to impose a range of sanctions such as suspending USA corresponding account access to any foreign bank that knowingly conducts or facilitates significant transactions tied to trade with North Korea", Mnuchin said, but will only apply only to future behavior.
"Trump's rubbish is the open declaration of war against our supreme dignity, state, social system and people, and an unpardonable extra-large provocation", the report said, adding that "the USA warmongers will face unimaginable consequences".
"The fire roughnecks who enjoy playing with fire, will die in fire", the news agency said.
While China did vote in favor of the two most recent United Nations resolutions against North Korea, Chinese diplomats have called for calm as Trump's rhetoric has heated up, and editorials in Chinese state media have continued to assail the US President's approach to diplomacy.
Also discussed at the meeting were long-unresolved abductions of Japanese citizens by North Korea.
North Korea has previously embraced racist, sexist and just plain rude statements about its enemies.
It said the operation showed the seriousness with which it took North Korea's "reckless behavior".
