"I hope they're going to fully understand the gravity of what I said", the president told reporters.

President Xi called on "relevant parties" to exercise restraint and avoid words and actions that would exacerbate tension, state TV reported, adding that it was in the interests of both China and the U.S. to pursue the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

North Korea issued the warning through its state-run KCNA news agency, wherein it was specifically mentioned that a potential strike could be launched on Andersen Air Force Base designed "to send a serious warning signal to the U.S.".

Trump issued another stern warning to Kim Jong Un, saying the North Korean leader would "truly regret" aggression against the USA or its allies.

The Korean Central News Agency reported that the proposal would be forwarded to leader Kim once plans had been finalised.

Meanwhile, Assistant Secretary Kristoffer James Purisima, deputy administrator for administration of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD), said the government was closely monitoring the potential missile strike.

"How do people really see Guam in the context of the USA family?" Yet Trump and Mattis seem committed to military action if North Korea provokes it.

North Korea said it was finalising a plan to fire medium-to-long-range rockets towards Guam, where USA strategic bombers are based, along with more than 160,000 U.S. citizens.

President Donald Trump said United States military solutions are "locked and loaded" in a direct threat against North Korea as tensions continue to mount.

"We have more sanctions to go unless North Korea responds - coal and iron ore, some strategic minerals, the oil supplies and the financial flow of overseas workers' money", Gheewhan Kim said. The Republican billionaire dismissed any criticism of his "fire and fury" warning of Tuesday, citing threats made by the regime of Kim Jong-Un to both Washington and its allies.

If it is designated as such, missile interception and protection of US military vessels will be allowed.

Guam's governor was assured of his island's safety on Saturday, with United States president Donald Trump giving the territory "1000 percent" backing.

"While standing by 24 hours in preparation for a launch, we are calling on our residents to be on alert in case we issue emergency information", Makoto Ebuchi added.
