President Donald Trump has issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against US territories or allies.

In a statement Saturday, Macron said the situation "undermines the preservation of worldwide peace" and the North Korean regime "poses a serious threat to the security of its neighbors".

It said the USA was ready "along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures" to end any nuclear threat from the North.

US Senator Lindsey Graham addressed the rising tensions between the USA and North Korea.

French President Emmanuel Macron has called on all sides in the North Korean nuclear crisis to act responsibly "to prevent any escalation of tensions" after a days-long war of words between Washington and Pyongyang. On Friday, he tweeted that America's military remains "locked and loaded" in the region.

Since its golf in Bedminster, near NY city, where he spent his vacation, Mr. Trump has also met with the governor of Guam, Eddie Calvo, in which he has "assured" that "the american forces are ready to ensure the safety and security of the population of Guam, like that of the United States as a whole", said the White House in a press release. The army of north korea, quoted by the official news agency, KCNA, reported Thursday the project's ability to launch four missiles, which survoleraient the japanese territory before going down to the sea "at 30 or 40 kilometres of Guam".

"Force has always been an option, but it has always been the last option, not the first", Soderberg said.

Trump's "fire and fury" remark on Tuesday followed reports that North Korea produced a nuclear weapon small enough to fit inside a missile.

"I think he's made a decision long ago, quite frankly, to try to negotiate the threat with North Korea".

Tensions around the Korean Peninsula started to rise in light of the implementation of the North Korean missile program.

"We just didn't do it in public", she said. In July, Pyongyang conducted two ballistic missile tests which provoked a sharp response from the United States, Japan and South Korea.
