Mike Pompeo, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said Sunday that North Korea had developed "at an alarming pace" his ability to launch a nuclear attack against the United States, but was keen to get a sense of the imminence of a military confrontation with Pyongyang.

Pompeo also said that the problem has been ongoing through previous USA administrations, but he argued President Donald Trump was making strides to effect change.

"Nothing is imminent. But be careful, the increased likelihood of a nuclear missile strikes the United States is a very risky threat", added the director of the u.s. central intelligence agency.

Pompeo said it's clear North Korea's nuclear capabilities are progressing rapidly, but he downplayed any immediate risk to the United States.

"They've been growing closer for two decades plus ..."

Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday that U.S.

Referring to Kim, President Trump added: "If he utters one threat ... or if he does anything with respect to Guam or any place else that's an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it, and he will regret it fast".

The top USA military officer, Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, is traveling in Asia and expected to meet with leaders in South Korea, Japan and China.

The director also dismissed talk from those in previous administrations who suggested the Trump White House was surprised by a news report that North Korea now has a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can be put on an intercontinental ballistic missile that could hit the U.S.

Trump has urged China to apply more pressure on North Korea.

White House officials have insisted the investigation was not created to apply additional pressure on China as it relates to North Korea despite the president's previous remarks that he would be more amenable on trade if China stopped Pyongyang's nuclear program.

Pompeo said "there's nothing imminent today", in response to a question about how anxious should people be over the escalating tensions.

Earlier this week, alarm bells sounded as North Korea warned that it was considering launching a salvo of four intermediate-range ballistic missiles towards Guam, home to thousands of civilians and troops, as well as numerous strategic military assets, as a show of force. "I think it's absolutely the right rhetoric. We're taking all possible actions short of military action, to resolve this very grave threat to the united states and the world".

A "spiral of violence" could quickly follow, he said.
