The territory of Guam has US military bases and is the closest USA area to North Korea, which has threatened to attack the Pacific island.

The Pentagon has a detailed plan for a military strike on North Korea, dispatching heavy bombers from Guam - the fortified US territory that Pyongyang is threatening with missiles.

North Korean military figures are putting the final touches on a plan to fire four missiles into the waters around the United States territory of Guam, to be presented to leader Kim Jong Un within days.

Unlike past missile launches that landed much closer to North Korean territory, firing a barrage near Guam would be extremely provocative, nearly compelling a response.

Calvo said the island was used to being a target of such threats ever since Washington stationed troops and military hardware there.

The Air Self-Defense Force was likely deploy the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 system in Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi prefectures, which North Korea said the missiles might cross over, as well as Ehime, the officials said.

The United States and South Korea remain technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

The island's 160,000 residents were this week put in the cross-hairs after it was revealed North Korea is now armed with nuclear warheads able to be fixed to its intercontinental missiles.

The statement follows days of back-and-forth threats between Trump and Kim.

China, North Korea's main ally, has consistently urged both sides to work to lower tensions.

U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis also said Thursday that while the U.S. military was "ready" for a confrontation with North Korea, his preference is for a diplomatic solution.

"Trump would probably take military action if North Korea attacks Guam, but would probably not if North Korean missiles fall around the island", a Japanese government source said.

Seeking to assure his citizens, Guam Governer Eddie Calvo told reporters on Friday that the island is "safe and sound".

Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera expressed the view that firing missiles at waters near Guam could be designated as "a survival-threatening situation" and as such could permit the exercise of the right of collective self-defense.

North Korea's bold threat includes "several places they can stop or give up", Carlin said.

An estimated 85 percent of the 163,000 residents of Guam are Catholic.
