The US President Donald Trump has vowed to answer any more threats by North Korea with fire and fury, remarks that followed Pyongyang saying that it is considering strikes near US strategic military installations in Guam island with its intermediate range ballistic missiles.
Trump told reporters at his vacation home in New Jersey yesterday that North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He said Kim Jong-Un has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement. Trump was responding to questions on the North Korea’s nuclear capabilities.
The remarks came amidst reports that the nuclear-armed country is coming close to obtaining an atomic weapon that can strike the US.
Media reports said North Korea has successfully miniaturised a nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles.
Meanwhile, the US State Department said that they are willing to talk with the North Koreans.
