Residents of the island of Guam are afraid of being caught in the middle of escalating tensions between the U.S. and North Korea after Pyongyang announced it was examining plans for attacking the strategically important U.S. territory.
The White House and Tillerson had differing accounts of which country was being helpful on North Korea. Meanwhile North Korea's UN ambassador has insisted its nuclear ambitions were in self-defense against the US.
Moscow has called US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's comments "constructive." US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had appeared to reverse US North Korea policy.
Pyongyang claims that its rockets can now reach every corner of the United States. But is that really what Kim Jong Un wants? His sole aim is to maintain his grip on power, says Jürgen Hanefeld.
North Korea has launched what appears to be a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan, claiming it has the ability to strike anywhere on the US continent. China responded by urging Pyongyang not to raise tensions.
