North Korea threatened Guam numerous times in the past

North Korea was the main concern cited in the "white paper" approved by Japan's Cabinet on Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2017, less than two weeks after the North test-fired its second ICBM.

North Korea said Wednesday that it was examining operational plans for attacking Guam, an angry reaction to new United Nations sanctions for its intercontinental ballistic missile tests and a US suggestion about preparations for possible preventive attacks to stop the North's nuclear weapons program.

Guam's Department of Homeland Security and Office of Civil Defense say they are monitoring North Korea with U.S. military and government officials.

Just hours before North Korea's strike warning, US President Donald Trump warned Pyongyang that if it continues to threaten the USA, it would face "fire and fury" the world has never seen.

Charfauros added that Guam's authorities "will continue to keep the public updated on any changes or requests for action".

Lavrov has often spoken expansively and sometimes humorously in the moments before or after meeting top American diplomats. The potential meetings come as the North faces intense worldwide pressure to curtail its nuclear weapons programme.

Pyongyang says its intercontinental ballistic missiles are a legitimate means of defence against perceived USA hostility, including joint military drills with South Korea.

Other US military assets at Guam include Los Angeles class submarines and the specialist Naval Special Warfare Unit One, part of the renowned SEALs.

A news release from Pacific Air Forces says the B-1s flew to Japanese airspace and joined Japanese F-2 fighter jets.

Guam has a THAAD missile defense system since the Obama administration, which is operated by the Army.

"The KPA Strategic Force is now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 in order to contain the US major military bases on Guam, including the Anderson Air Force Base", said the spokesman.
