"At the same time, the governor of Guam helped assure people that things are in place especially the security umbrella that we hope will intercept any missile attack against Guam", he adds.

USA diplomats aren't giving up on avoiding a military conflict.

The US President Donald Trump says he'll respond to any threat from North Korea with fire and fury.
