Nuclear confrontation with North Korea would be "catastrophic": Mattis

Nuclear confrontation with North Korea would be Nuclear confrontation with North Korea would be "catastrophic": Mattis

In remarks to reporters, Mattis said the United States was prepared to respond to a North Korean attack.

Though not a direct response to the "fire and fury" statement, North Korea's army announced hours after that it was preparing a plan for missile strike on the US territory of Guam should Washington carry out military action against the DPRK.

The Pentagon chief remained largely mum on the details of that military solution, which theoretically would curb Pyongyang's efforts to develop a nuclear-capable, ballistic missile arsenal, except to say any military option would be a multilateral one involving a number of regional powers in the Pacific.

"What the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un would understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language", Tillerson said.

Trump warns North Korea against attacking Guam
From a gilded hall in Washington DC's Mayflower hotel, in typical Trumpian fashion, the speech was not notable for its accuracy. Trump's comments came after he spent two days slamming McConnell on Twitter, writing that McConnell "couldn't get it done".

"Guam's leaders say the threat level hasn't gone up following North Korea's latest threat".

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told The Chronicle in an interview that he was confident that there are experts giving Trump advice on the volatile North Korea situation, even if the president has been bellicose in his Twitter attacks on the rogue nation.

President Donald Trump again stepped up the rhetoric against North Korea on Thursday, saying an earlier threat to unleash "fire and fury" on Pyongyang if it launched an attack was not tough enough.

That impetus has only grown among administration officials amid reports this week that Pyongyang had built a nuclear warhead small enough to fit atop one of the country's long-range missiles. The aircraft flew over Japanese airspace before passing over the Korean Peninsula. We call on the relevant parties to be cautious with their words and actions, and contribute more toward easing tensions and enhancing mutual trust, ' Geng said in a statement.

Pyongyang on Thursday announced it was finalising a plan to fire four missiles near the United States territory of Guam.

South Korean and US troops are also gearing up for an annual joint drill from August 21, called the Ulchi Freedom Guardian, in which up to 30,000 USA troops will take part.

Mattis said that though the State Department is making efforts to resolve the threat using diplomatic means, allied militaries possess "robust defensive and offensive capabilities".
