Um I'm not seeing the real problem here. As long as it's over there an keeps from affecting the atmosphere to much, the poverty ridden country of NK will need to ask for foreign aid, this could be a great thing! China will also have to spend sometime cleaning stuff up and in that time maybe we can get a few activists out of the country. I see potential progress for the US out of this potentially horrific disaster.
According to Joseon Wangjo Sillok, a large earthquake of maximum intensity 9 (Modified Mercalli Intensity, MMI) and its aftershocks occurred at the border region of Samsu county in Hamgyeongdo Province in the year 1597. The document reveals that they were detected in Hamgyeongdo (MMI 6) and in Chungcheongdo (MMI 4) for three days. The mainshock was accompanied by a volcanic explosion at Wangtian that is located at 35km southwest from Mt. Baekdu. The place is one of the three eruption centers of the Mt. Baekdu volcanic body. A document from China reveals that a large earthquake with estimated magnitude 7.0 and aftershocks occurred in the gulf of Bohai on the same days as those of the Samsu earthquakes in Hamgyeongdo province.

I wonder what would happen if they nuked the volcano mid-eruption. Maybe it would simply destroy the volcano and the lava?
