Military solutions fully in place against N

Trump speaks to reporters after a security briefing at his golf estate in Bedminster New Jersey

President Trump fired another warning shot at Pyongyang early Friday - declaring that USA military options are "locked and loaded".

North Korea said it has drawn up plans to launch four missiles near the small island of Guam, a us territory and military hub. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

Should North Korea attack the US or one of its allies, Trump said that "things will happen to them like they never thought possible, OK?"

It is not clear what exactly the US military has done to get its responses "fully in place".

The defiant statement came amid claims China will intervene if America attacks North Korea first - and will only stay neutral if Kim Jong-un launches initial missiles. So far, North Korea has continued tests in the face of sanctions. On Thursday, he said Beijing "can" and "will" do a lot more to keep North Korea in check.

Trump has attempted to leverage China, North Korea's only major ally, to apply more economic pressure on the isolated regime.

China's government, via state media, said it would remain neutral if North Korea attacks the US but would defend its neighbor if the USA were to strike first against Kim Jong Un. But Trump maintained Thursday his words might not have been "tough enough".

Asked if the United States was ready if North Korea made a hostile act, he said: "We are ready".

Still, there are no immediate signs that the U.S.is planning an attack.

As North Korean ballistic missiles are liquid fueled, they take some time to prepare for launch, unlike solid fueled ICBMs deployed by the United States and Russian Federation that can be launched on command.
