South Korea tells North Korea to stop issuing threats

South Korea tells North Korea to stop issuing threats

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely", Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday.

Hopefully Kim Jong Un will indeed find another path!

It's an existential question for this tiny territory now caught between President Trump and North Korea.

Earlier Friday, Mr. Trump dismissed critics who wonder if he is escalating tensions with North Korea. He also said he would prefer no nuclear weapons and the complications they or their pursuit present in North Korea, Pakistan and Iran.

He spoke as Pyongyang accused him of "driving" the Korean peninsula to the "brink of a nuclear war".

She said whatever strategy Trump decides to go with, he must be tough on Un and make it clear we won't tolerate North Korea's threats.

He then challenged dictator Kim Jong Un directly.

"U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called for the peaceful denuclearization of North Korea - a common goal of the worldwide community - and stressed the importance of strengthening pressure on North Korea in diplomatic, economic terms", the South Korean spokesman said. A war would be "catastrophic", he said.

On Thursday it added that it proposed to fire four intermediate-range Hwasong-12 missiles over Japan, to land in waters 30-40 km (18.6-24.8 miles) off Guam.

Trump has appeared restless during his planned 17-day stay at his golf course in New Jersey, tweeting often and holding a pair of impromptu sessions with reporters Thursday, while spending long stretches outside the public eye.

ITV News Senior International Correspondent John Irvine said it would be an "an extremely provocative act" to fire missiles towards Guam, a U.S. site which hosts a major military base.

Beijing has been voicing some alarm at the growing war of words between Washington and Pyongyang, which included a warning from Trump that North Korea would face "fire and fury" if it kept threatening the US.

But he once again suggested that he expected China to "do a lot more" to bring North Korea into line.

Trump also told China to step up and do more to pressure North Korea into ending its nuclear weapons program.

North Korea has threatened to attack the United States territory of Guam and announced on Saturday that 3.5m people had signed up to join the army over the past week.

North Korea issued the warning through its state-run KCNA news agency, wherein it was specifically mentioned that a potential strike could be launched on Andersen Air Force Base designed "to send a serious warning signal to the USA".

"Trump reassured GovernorCalvoand our fellow Americans on Guam thatUnitedStatesforces stand ready to ensure the safety and security of the people of Guam, along withthe rest of America", it said.
