  • Kim Jong-un the Communist dictator of the Democratic Republic of North Korea

However, continued missile tests from North Korea including two Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles angered the west and Trump's initially warm embrace of China turned cold. Beijing has been remarkably quiet as US President Donald Trump and North Korea's premier Kim Jong-un have exchanged apocalyptic threats.

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on August 10.

"I support peace, I support safety, and I support having to get very tough if we have to protect America or our allies", said Trump.

A state-run Chinese paper said today Beijing is warning against a pre-emptive strike by the U.S.

THE Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) allayed fears over the possible impact of North Korea's plan to launch ballistic missiles at the US Pacific territory of Guam on Manila, which is some 1,500 miles away. A USA defense official, who wanted to remain anonymous, said either an intermediate-range missile known as a KN-20 or a Hwasong-14, would "probably" be launched as it is the 64th anniversary of the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement.

The president spoke with Guam Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo on Saturday to reassure him and residents here. The two countries narrowly avoided a nuclear war.

"Maybe it wasn't tough enough", he said.

The president brushed off the criticism of his rhetoric by saying that "tens of millions of people in this country" are happy with him standing up for the USA and its allies.

The president vowed to maintain the world's strongest nuclear force, no matter the cost.

North Korea has always denied any wrongdoing.

"I will do my best to secure our people's lives and property", Abe said without elaboration. "I would like Russian Federation and the United States and China and Pakistan and many other countries that have nuclear weapons get rid of them".

China, North Korea's most important ally and trading partner, has reiterated calls for calm during the current crisis.

"China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten USA soil first and the US retaliates, China will stay neutral", the editorial read.

He said he would like to see a nuclear-free world, but until all countries, including Russia, China and Pakistan get rid of their nuclear weapons, he pledged the USA would remain "the most powerful nuclear nation on earth by far". China has also blamed the US and South Korea of obstructing that goal by insisting on pursuing joint military exercises, according to a report published by the NY.

Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said in a statement that the current situation on the Korean Peninsula "is complex and sensitive".
