GETTYWhere is Guam? The holiday island has become the centre of the North Korea Donald Trump conflict
North Korea responded to Trump's rhetoric by threatening to attack the American Pacific island territory of Guam.
Trump said that Pyongyang should not be more advanced threats to Washington.
McMaster said the threat from North Korea to the world is "very, very clear".
After Trump vowed on Tuesday to treat North Korean threats of hostility with "fire and fury like the world has never seen", the Kim regime announced that it is planning to launch four intermediate-range ballistic missiles into the Pacific Ocean near Guam, a US territory. "I think we're not closer to war than a week ago", McMaster said on ABC's "This Week".
The US is ready along with its allies to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures to stop the North Korean nuclear menace, President Donald Trump told his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on Satruday.
A White House statement said Trump and President Emmanuel Macron had discussed "the increasingly unsafe situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour".
That prompted Trump to reassure citizens of the USA territory that the American military was prepared to ensure their safety.
According to the White House, Trump and Xi affirmed that the recent adoption of a new UN Security Council resolution regarding North Korea was an important and necessary step toward achieving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. But China says it alone can not compel Pyongyang to change course.
State-run China Central Television quoted Xi as telling Trump the "relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula".
