Freeland, speaking days after a Canadian pastor was released from a North Korean prison, said North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile program is a grave threat that must be stopped.

U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted Friday morning that "military solutions" are "locked and loaded" should North Korea act unwisely, capping off a week that saw North Korea lay out plans for a military strike on Guam, an American territory in the region. "When they are threatened, we are there", she said.

Freeland's remarks came as Trump delivered another warning to Pyongyang that the US military is "locked and loaded" if the regime acts unwisely.

Informing Lim's arrival to the country, Global Affairs Canada said in a statement: "Today, we join Pastor Lim's family and congregation in celebrating his long-awaited return to Canada".

Asked about Trump's language on North Korea, Freeland said Canada stands by all of its allies, including the United States.


"Canada is very clear in condemning the actions of North Korea", she said.

"We stand by all of our allies very much including the United States".

Freeland said Canada is "working with our global partners to seek a resolution, a de-escalation" in the situation.

Freeland expressed relief at the release of Canadian pastor Hyeong Soo Lim, who was serving a life sentence in North Korea for anti-state activities.

Lim was detained by North Korean authorities in January 2015 while in the country on a charitable mission.
