For years, North Korea has claimed Guam is within its missiles' striking distance, making furious statements each time when the us flew powerful bombers from the island's air base to the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea wants an end to annual military drills between the United States and South Korea that it condemns as invasion rehearsals, and the removal of tens of thousands of us troops stationed in the South.

"Absolutely not true", the ministry's spokesperson said when asked about the allegations.

"[It's] pretty automatic that if there are any threats, especially for those who are in affected areas, they have contingency plans for those things", he said.

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers.

While many are concerned about the recent threats by North Korea it should be pointed out that this is not the first time that North Korea has threatened Guam.

But even with the assurance, the Filipino community gave mixed reactions to the threat.

That was the second missile alleged to be an ICBM to be tested by the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, after on July 4, it carried out a ballistic missile test, and claimed that the rocket was the much coveted intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

Trump has pushed China to pressure North Korea to halt a nuclear weapons program that is nearing the capability of targeting the United States.

At Mosa's Joint, in Guam's capital Hagatna, Thursday happy hour lasts until 8 p.m.

Calling it "the responsibility of all", Macron called on the global community to "act in a concerted, firm and effective manner, as it has just done in the (U.N.) Security Council, to bring North Korea back to the path of dialogue". It's very possible the North could attack Japan and USA bases there with nuclear, chemical or biological warheads.

North Korea: Millions Are Signing Up to Fight
North Korea responded by detailing a plan to fire ballistic missiles toward the US territory of Guam, home to USA military bases. The post France's Macron speaks to Trump, warns over N Korea escalation appeared first on Vanguard News .


The threat comes following statements from President Donald Trump that have enraged Kim Jong Un and other North Korean leaders, including Trump's warning that threatening the USA would see North Korea "face fire and fury like the world has never seen".

The paper said, "The powerful revolutionary Paektusan army of the DPRK, capable of fighting any war the US wants, is now on the standby to launch fire into its mainland, waiting for an order of final attack".

North Korean state media has described US President Trump as a person "bereft of reason" who only understands "brute force". "He goes around threatening Guam and threatening the United States".

As U.S. President Donald Trump raised the level of his warning against North Korea, foreign investors dumped 649-point-eight billion won worth of Korean stocks in the main bourse.

On the foreign exchange market, the value of the local currency weakened one-point-five won against the US dollar, closing at one-thousand-143-point-five won.

Moon believes the best way to solve the North Korean nuclear crisis is engagement of the sort that two past liberal leaders used to win historic summits with Pyongyang.

Yesterday, Trump said that his threat earlier this week to unleash "fire and fury" on Pyongyang, if it launched an attack, may not have been tough enough.

South Korea's military also said it was prepared for swift action with respect to North Korea's moves. "And we see this as a positive sign", he said.

On a technical level, just as the North learns valuable information on its capabilities with each launch, so does the USA military. She said, "I don't see a military solution and I don't think it's called for".

DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. He said he was willing to meet with North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un, but only under the right conditions.
