Earlier this week, Trump said that North Korea would be met with "fire and fury" if it made further threats against the USA, and then on Thursday, he suggested that those words may not have been "tough enough" after the threats from North Korea continued. Pyongyang claimed that its latest missile, test-fired on July 4, can deliver a "large, heavy nuclear warhead" to the United States continent.

The restrictions came after North Korea's latest missile tests, which it claimed involved the launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Catholics attending a Sunday mass in Guam prayed for peace amid missile threats from North Korea.

Perry said that arrangement could ease tensions that have only heightened this week after both President Trump and dictator Kim Jong Un touted their military strength. On Thursday, Trump said his original statement "wasn't tough enough".


"We want to talk about a country that has misbehaved for many, many years - decades actually - through numerous administrations and they didn't want to take on the issue and I had no choice but to take it on and I'm taking it on", he said. "I think there is still time for other measures, sanctions, diplomacy and all those kind of things", the former spy master warned. -North Korean relations and Americans imprisoned in North Korea, the source said.

After the telephones talks on Saturday, the White House said in a statement that the two leaders discussed the increasingly unsafe situation associated with North Korea's destabilizing and escalatory behavior. And it reaffirms my honest belief that President Trump's mouth is a greater threat to America than North Korea could ever hope to be.

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 leader ramped up his warnings to Pyongyang, saying the Stalinist regime would "truly regret" taking hostile action against the United States.

Xi for his part urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already-tense situation and seek a political settlement to the standoff, according to the Chinese foreign ministry.
