Trump Tells Guam Governor Nuclear Tensions Will Mean More Tourism

  • TASSSergei Lavrov is hoping the US & North Korea will agree to the plan

President Trump reassured Governor Calvo and our fellow Americans on Guam that United States forces stand ready to ensure the safety and security of the people of Guam, along with the rest of America.

Kim, the North Korean leader, will "truly regret it and he will regret it fast" if he utters an overt threat at Guam or any territory belonging to the U.S. or its allies, he added.

In his phone call with Trump, Xi said China hoped the parties concerned would exercise restraint and refrain from taking any action that will aggravate tensions on the peninsula, according to CGTN.

The U.S. president also contended that increased media attention around Guam - a result of North Korea threatening to fire intermediate-range missiles that would land near Guam - would bring a boom of tourism.

In an editorial on Friday, China's state owned Global Times newspaper warned that China won't come to North Korea's aid if it launches missiles threatening US soil and there is retaliation - but that China would intervene if Washington strikes first. Immediate risks include the danger of massive refugee flows from a decapitated North Korea and the possibility of a reunified Korea shaped by the capitalist South. Many commentators are calling these risks "intolerable", but what they're missing is the greater risk to China's long-term ambitions posed by a failure to pacify its rogue neighbor.

His logic was that with images of the "beautiful" Guam being all over the news, people would be more interested in going there.

Calvo said laughingly that his island is already at 95 percent occupancy, and when everything calms down it will be at 110 percent occupancy. I mean - and then it has detailed instructions of what to do with radioactive clothing and so on and so forth.

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely", Trump tweeted on Friday.

Dialogue, negotiations, and a political settlement are the fundamental ways of solving the Korean Peninsula's nuclear issue, Xi said during the call.

According to the latest survey by Chicago Council on Global Affairs, "Military action.as in past surveys, lacks public support". But islanders don't seem in a hurry to get ready. "That U.S. can stop North Korea from all of this".

Worst of all, if American intentions aren't clear, an attempt to intercept a missile might be misinterpreted by Pyongyang - or Beijing or Moscow - and escalate into a real shooting war. And if it goes through with the launch and there are no consequences, it can use that too. It says, if caught outside, do not look at the flask or the fireball. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!".

In South Korea, the government began the environmental survey needed to complete deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system - a sign that the liberal government is now trying to expedite the deployment. They also accused Saudi authorities of coercing confessions and reportedly subjecting the protesters to physical force. In terms of security policy, he argues that the UK is not as much of a presence in the western Pacific region as it once was.

After a week of threats and counterthreats between Washington and Pyongyang, Xi urged both sides not to say or do anything that would aggravate tensions, China's CGTN state television network reported.

Schilling said the success of North Korean missiles also depend on the weight of the payload.

"President Trump and President Macron pledged to work together with allies and partners to enforce United Nations sanctions and achieve denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the transcript reads.

Trump will make an official visit to China later this year.

The Asian country was also angered by a UN decision to increase economic sanctions against it last week.

Liberal president Moon Jae-in, elected in May, had vowed to conduct an environmental review of the deployment, which he had questioned while on the campaign trail. Hundreds of thousands of troops and huge arsenals are arrayed on both sides of the tense demilitarised zone between the two Koreas. Elleman, who analyzed the video, concluded that it most likely "disintegrated" before splashdown, suggesting North Korea is still struggling with re-entry.
