"All over the world the world, they're talking about Guam, and they're talking about you, and I think-tourism, I can say this, your tourism, you're going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you", Trump said.

A day after Trump said North Korea would face "fire and fury" if it kept threatening the U.S., a warning was issued by North Korea where it threatened to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

He added: "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" "Was this statement signed off on by anyone?" At the same time, Beijing will respond if the US and South Korea strike first and try to overthrow the North Korean regime.

He said North Korea had been "getting away with a tragedy that can't be allowed". U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley called it "the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation".

China has repeatedly called for a resumption of long-dormant six-party talks to peacefully resolve the mounting tensions, but its position has been overshadowed by the emerging game of brinkmanship.

Pyongyang has explicitly and repeatedly stated its anger over U.S. B-1B bombers based in Guam conducting flyovers of the Korean Peninsula.

The North then came out with a threat to lob four intermediate-range "Hwasong-12" missiles near Guam, a tiny US territory some 3,200 kilometers (2,000 miles) from Pyongyang.

Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull declared support for the United States in case North Korea attacks, saying the Australian-American alliance was the "absolute bedrock of our national security".

"Well you know my critics are only saying that because it's me", Mr. Trump told reporters. The North Korean military has said it was working on a plan that will involve firing intermediate range missiles into the seas creating an "enveloping fire" around Guam, a USA territory in the Pacific that is home to several USA military facilities. "If the USA and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so".

Trump has pushed China to pressure North Korea to halt a nuclear weapons program that is nearing the capability of targeting the United States.

The new punishment could cost North Korea $1 billion a year, and even China voted for the US-drafted proposal.

Pyongyang's media outlet said America was making "desperate efforts" to test weapons in the Korean peninsula. Chung and McMaster had a telephone conversation to discuss North Korea, presidential spokesman Park Su-hyun said. "Is the USA gonna go to war?" On Friday, an editorial was published by the Global Times that said China should clear its stance on the rising U.S.

"The circumstances are unfortunate but this is a good opportunity for us to educate the world about Guam and our culture, about where we are, and who we are", Guam Visitors Bureau marketing director Josh Tyquiengco told AFP.
