Xi Jinping, the leader of North Korea's key ally China, urged Trump on Saturday to avoid rhetoric that could inflame tensions, after the USA president ramped up his warnings to Pyongyang, saying the Stalinist regime would "truly regret" taking hostile action against the United States.

U.S. president Donald Trump has called the Governor of Guam, the island nation under threat of nuclear attack from North Korea, that news of the potential missile strike will boost tourism. An organization which supports the United States' defense program.

China is the North's biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can't compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs.

"Recently, North Korea made its habitual absurd remarks that it will turn Seoul into a sea of fire and that it will strike near Guam", Song said according to ministry official. Trump's comments, however, do not appear to be backed by significant military mobilization on either side of the Pacific, and an important, quiet diplomatic channel remains open. State-run media ensures that the population gets the North Korean side of the story, but doesn't convey any sense of worldwide concern about the situation.

"As an American citizen I have never felt more safe or so confident with you at the helm", Mr Calvo said.

"Hopefully it'll all work out", Trump said. "They are talking about Guam; and they're talking about you". In the President's words they are behind us "1000 percent."As the head of the Government of Guam, I appreciate their reassurances that my family, my friends, everyone on this island, are all safe".
