Trump also spoke this weekend with Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo, reassuring him that USA military forces stand ready to ensure the safety and security of the US territory, a White House statement said.

Asked if "threats alone" would be enough for the U.S. to retaliate militarily, McMaster said "it depends". The country's state-run newspaper said that leader Kim Jung Un's revolutionary army is "capable of fighting any war the USA wants".

"I think we're not closer to war than a week ago", the former Army general said.

North Korea's official version of history says Kim Jong Il was born in a log cabin on the slopes of the mountain, from where his father led an anti-Japanese partisan group. "But we are closer to war than we were a decade ago".

Global communities including India agrees that North Korea Is imposing serious threat against the United State.

President Donald Trump said on Friday that the US military is "locked and loaded" should North Korea decide to "act unwisely" as the nuclear crisis between the two nations continues to escalate.

On Tuesday, Trump said North Korea "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it continues to threaten the United States, after North Korea warned it will teach the USA a "severe lesson" with its nuclear weapons if Washington would dare to opt for military action against Pyongyang.

Questioned about Trump's comment, McMaster said the USA is always prepared.

"You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", said Ellison (D-Minn.). Us has sponsored over the Pyongyang nuclear missile weapon programs by Changing the new economic sanction. "What we need from an intelligence perspective, what is most important is that our communications are clear that the fella who intends to inflict pain on the United States of America understands the USA position in an unambiguous way".

The Labour leader's warning comes after he called on Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to hold direct talks "in the interest of sanity".

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that while there is no "imminent" threat from North Korea, he expects the regime to to continue working on its weapons development program. " "But make no mistake about it, the continuation, the increased chance that there will be a nuclear missile in Denver is a very serious threat, and the investigation is going to treat it as such".

Experts said one missile had enough range to hit Alaska, but the most recent rocket firing on July 28 could strike the U.S. mainland.
