Trump to Guam: Nuclear Tensions Will Bring you Tourism

Kim Jong Un

Xi's comments came hours after Trump warned North Korea that the US military was "locked and loaded" as Pyongyang accused the USA leader of driving the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war.

"They discussed the need to confront the increasingly risky situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behavior", the White House said in a statement.

In a meeting with top aides at the presidential Blue House, Moon said South Korea would work to safeguard peace on the peninsula in co-operation with the United States and other countries.

"I'm just saying that is the result of what's happening". Nobody wanted it. It happened", she told The Washington Post on Saturday, adding: "We pray day and night. But the U.S. is unlikely to put all of its eggs in the sanctions basket.

President Donald Trump went on to assure Governor Calvo that Guam is safe.

"I don't think anyone can really predict what our president may offer, because he is one of those thinkers outside the box", Metcalfe said.

The biggest departure from North Korea's established pattern this time around was its decision to announce the details of the Guam plan. While there are no rhetorical "off-ramps" in sight, the costs of war are so high that North Korea and the USA will probably learn to deter each other, provided both can master the more clinical vocabulary and syntax of nuclear deterrence as it was practiced during the Cold War. Few have so far canceled vacations, the Pacific Daily News reported this week.

It also advises parents to stay where they are and wait for instructions, even if they are separated from their children.

Guam is taking every precaution possible following the news that North Korea plans to attack the island.

But China, which accounts for 90 percent of the North's trade, has said it would not cut off humanitarian aid to the country's poverty-stricken population. Pointing to USA threats on Guam serves to rebut Chinese complaints, at least a bit. In days since that threat was issued, Trump has doubled down, meeting with his national security staff to discuss ways to ameliorate the crisis or else confront the North militarily. He also praised the response from the president, who said that an attack on the United States would be met with "fire and fury."

On Thursday, Trump doubled down on his warnings, saying his "fire and fury" remark may not have been tough enough.

"Both assured me that the people of Guam are safe", Calvo wrote on Facebook.

"We don't want to talk about progress, we don't want to talk about back channels", Trump told reporters Friday, revealing nothing.

Mr Trump went on to say that he has been watching news reports about Guam and that the "beautiful" island has "become extremely famous".

"I would expect that Dunford will make the usual request that they put more pressure on the regime to behave, and to recognize that Kim's actions threatens our core interests, which means we will have to continue to take measures that Beijing doesn't like, for example the deployment of Thaad", Mr. McKeon said.

Washington has previously said it will consider talks with Pyongyang if it agrees to give up its nuclear weapons program, a precondition North Korean officials have described as a non-starter. "We're going to do a great job so don't worry about a thing". "Guam is not a bargaining chip", Rep. Madeleine Z. Bordallo (D-Guam) said in a statement earlier this week.

The statement had also said that the plan could involve involve firing medium- to long-range rockets at the Pacific island, which is home to a strategic outpost of the USA military including a submarine squadron, an air base and a Coast Guard unit. More than 160,000 of whom live on Guam.
