Kim Jong-Un will truly regret threats to United States and allies

Kim Jong-Un will truly regret threats to United States and allies”

Mr Trump has warned North Korea it faces "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it continues to threaten the United States with missiles, and issued similar threats after provocations from Pyongyang that included a claim it was planning a strike on Guam. State-run media ensure that the population gets the North Korean side of the story, but don't convey any sense of worldwide concern about the situation.

An employee of a foreign exchange trading company works in front of a monitor showing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on a TV programme in Tokyo, Japan.

In a separate appearance, Trump added: "Let's see what [Kim Jong Un] does with Guam".

He also said his previous promise of "fire and fury" in response to threats from North Korea may have not gone far enough, vowing "trouble" for the country if its actions don't change.

If North Korea launches an attack that threatens the United States, China should stay neutral.

The government has chose to deploy missile interceptors along the possible path of North Korean ballistic missiles fired toward Guam after Pyongyang threatened the U.S. Pacific territory, Defense Ministry officials said Friday. "But that's something that we see as remote", he added.

Trump said the administration's position was "backed 100 percent" by the US military, and also enjoyed the support of "many other leaders".

Earlier in the day, the US President said military solutions against the nuclear-armed North Korean regime were "locked and loaded" for use if Pyongyang acted "unwisely".

The statement Friday does not mention any specific actions China would be willing to take, although some Chinese scholars and state media have called on Beijing to take on a shuttle diplomacy role to facilitate talks between the US and North Korea.

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

Washington and Seoul say the exercises are defensive in nature and crucial to maintaining a deterrent against North Korean aggression. Of course, I do.

Earlier Friday, Trump said on Twitter that U.S. "When you say bad solution, are you talking about war?" "The tragedy of war is well enough known, it does not need another characterization beyond the fact that it would be catastrophic".

The standoff between Trump and Kim has been likened to the Cuban missile crisis, when President John Kennedy engaged in brinkmanship against Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev in 1962.

Trump also said China, Pyongyang's main diplomatic ally, could "do a lot more" to pressure Kim to end his country's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. "Somebody has to do it".
