North Korea’s official news agency said on Tuesday, that Kim Jung-Un received a report from his army on plans to fire missiles towards Guam but he will watch the actions of the United States before making a decision to fire.
North Korea said last week it was finalising plans to launch four missiles into the waters near the US Pacific territory of Guam.
Kim, who inspected the command of the North’s army on Monday, examined the plan for a long time and discussed it with army officers, the official KCNA agency said.
“He said that if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the latter will make an important decision as it already declared,” it said.
Pyongyang’s threat to strike near Guam prompted a surge in tensions in the region last week, with US President Donald Trump warning he would unleash “fire and fury” on North Korea if it did so.
 
Kim said the US should make the right choice “in order to defuse the tensions and prevent the dangerous military conflict on the Korean peninsula”.
Meanwhile, Trump spoke to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe late Monday to discuss North Korea.
“President Trump reaffirmed that the United States stands ready to defend and respond to any threat or actions taken by North Korea against the United States or its allies, South Korea and Japan,” a White House statement said early Tuesday.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Tuesday there would be no military action without Seoul’s consent and his government would prevent war by all means.
“Military action on the Korean peninsula can only be decided by South Korea and no one else can decide to take military action without the consent of South Korea,” Moon said in a speech to commemorate the anniversary of the nation’s liberation from Japanese military rule in 1945.
“The government, putting everything on the line, will block war by all means,” Moon said.
