MOSCOW (Sputnik) – North Korea’s state agency KCNA reported earlier in the day that its military planned to complete a plan by mid-August to hit waters off Guam with four medium-range missiles. It said they would fly over three Japanese prefectures, reaching their target in 17 minutes 45 seconds.
"Our office will be notified from the military and will utilize all forms of mass communication to get the message out to the public," Gaminde said as quoted by the media outlets.
This is not the first time North Korea has threatened the US Pacific territory, making a statement about the Andersen Air Force Base as recently as March 2013.
Last week, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution strengthening sanctions against Pyongyang in response to its recent missile tests. Commenting on the sanctions, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un promised to take decisive steps against the United States, including "physical actions."
On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump warned Pyongyang not to make any more threats against Washington or it would face "fire and fury."
