US President, Donald Trump, says the US military is locked, loaded and ready to deal with any North Korean threat.
Trump made the declaration via Twitter on Friday.
The United States President tweeted: “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”, Trump wrote.
North Korea had on Wednesday it is “carefully examining” a plan to strike the US Pacific territory of Guam with missiles.
The threat followed warning by Trump that any threat to the United States would be met with “fire”.
“North Korea had best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump said at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey on Tuesday.
“They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
But a spokesman for the Korean People’s Army, in a statement, said the strike plan will be “put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment” once leader Kim Jong-un makes a decision.
