New York: US President Donald Trump on Thursday issued a fresh warning to North Korea, asking them to "get their act together" to avoid facing "fire and fury like the world has never seen."
Trump said, "If North Korea does anything in terms of attacking us or our allies then they will be very very nervous as things will happen to them as like they haven't thought possible."
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States," Trump added. "They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before."
This stern warning of Trump came hours after North Korea state media has released a detailed plan of the military to be presented before Kim Jong-Un to fire four ballistic missiles near the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to the U.S. bombers.
The intermediate-range missiles would be fired east and over Japan before landing around 30 to 40 kilometres (18 to 25 miles) off the coast of the tiny island if the plan is implemented, CNN quoted statement of state-run KCNA.
Guam is more than 3,000 kilometres from North Korea.
U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said "Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's stand is very clear as there are diplomatic and military means both are strong and capable in the face of the threats by North Korea or other nations."
A day ago North Korea announced its military is "preparing and examining" a plan to launch a missile strike on the strategic U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, just hours after President Donald Trump warned the regime that any threat to the United States would be met with "fire and fury."
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 US."
The base is one of two on the Pacific island, which are the closest bases on US soil to North Korea, and represent western most tip of the country's military might, the CNN reported.
Taking into account the threat and the fear of residents, Guam's governor, Eddie Baza Calvo, released a video address, reassuring the island's residents that there was no escalated threat.
"I want to reassure the people of Guam that currently there is no threat to our island or the Marianas," he said....
