North Korea says seriously considering plan to strike Guam: KCNA
On Monday, two US B-1 bombers flew from Guam over the Korean Peninsula as a part of its “continuous bomber presence,” a U.S. official said, in a sign of the strategic importance Guam holds.
In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also accused the United States of devising a “preventive war” and said any plans to execute this would be met with an “all-out war wiping out all the strongholds of enemies, including the U.S. mainland.”
The United States should stop its “reckless military provocation” against North Korea to avoid any military action, the army spokesman said.
The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on Saturday over its continued missile tests.
Trump ratcheted up the rhetoric against North Korea on Tuesday, saying Pyongyang should not make any more threats against the United States in a meeting with reporters at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
