Trump claims warning to North Korea 'wasn't tough enough'

Trump claims warning to North Korea 'wasn't tough enough'

The announcement, which included detailed maps, came after a week of an increasingly heated war of words between North Korea and the USA that saw Trump threaten Pyongyang with "fire and fury".

Gen. Kim Rak Gyom, North Korea's commander of strategic rocket forces, spoke to state media Thursday and launched a number of insults at the US president.

(KOREAN) "We are pouring our efforts into bolstering South Korea's defense capabilities by focusing our energy on completing the three-stage defense system".

South Korea earlier sought to damp down tensions between over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons programme, telling its northern neighbour that the door to dialogue is still open.

North Korea on Thursday called U.S. President Donald Trump's bluff with detailed plans to surround the U.S. territory of Guam in the Pacific Ocean in "enveloping fire". But previous year, Japan enacted a new defense policy, allowing its military to defend US territories and other allies against attack. The development came as tensions have risen in recent months between North Korea and the United States.

KCNA said on Wednesday a mass rally was held in Pyongyang to support the government.

The officials told NBC that the attack would originate from the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.

Guam, a tropical island more than 3,000 km (2,000 miles) to the southeast of North Korea, is home to about 163,000 people and a U.S. air base, Navy installation that includes a submarine squadron, a Coast Guard group and roughly 6,000 USA military service members. The plan would be sent to Kim for approval just before or as the U.S.

More recently, North Korean missiles have landed in the Sea of Japan, with some falling in Japan's exclusive economic zone that stretches as much as 200 nautical miles from its shores. Along with a bigger set of maneuvers held every spring, the exercises are routinely met by strong condemnation and threats of countermeasures from North Korea.

North Korean state media reported on Thursday plans for the strike would be ready by mid-August and will await the orders of the "commander-in-chief of the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) nuclear force", understood to be Kim Jong Un. The possibility of escalation is made even more acute by the lack of any means of official communication across the Demilitarized Zone, though there has been no easing of the barrage of inflammatory comments in the US and the North since new sanctions against North Korea were announced last week.
