Defense Secretary, Schwarzenegger say USA ready to respond

Defense Secretary, Schwarzenegger say USA ready to respond

Mattis pointed to last weekend's unanimous vote by the U.N. Security Council to impose new sanctions on North Korea as a sign of robust diplomatic activity.

"On the situation on the Korean peninsula obviously the Secretary General remains extremely concerned by the ongoing situation; he's troubled by the increase in confrontational rhetoric that we've seen", a spokesman for Guterres said.

In a lengthy exchange with reporters at his Bedminster golf resort, he said past administrations had not done enough to take on North Korea and that it was time a president "stuck up for the country".

On Wednesday night, North Korea's military said President Donald Trump's warning of "fire and fury" if it threatens the U.S.is a "load of nonsense".

"How often do you see France, China, Russia, the U.S. voting unanimously on any issue?"

In a letter organized by Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), 62 Democrats of the House of Representatives expressed "profound concern" over Trump's statements, apparently referring to his threat to unleash "fire and fury" in response to the North's vows to attack the United States. "And I don't think we are".

According to two U.S. military sources which spoke to NBC, U.S. intelligence has identified at least two dozen targets in the DPRK, which they say consist of missile launch sites, testing grounds, storage facilities and support equipment.

United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric says Guterres "welcomes all initiatives that will help de-escalate the tensions and a return to diplomacy".

Meanwhile North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency said its army would complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near Guam.

There are about 29,000 American troops permanently stationed in South Korea. He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody's seen before, what will happen in North Korea, ' Trump told reporters in New Jersey, without offering specifics.

Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesman Roh Jae-cheon said Thursday that the US and South Korean militaries are prepared to "immediately and sternly punish" any kind of provocation by North Korea, but didn't elaborate on how the allies are preparing.
