Washington : North Korea had earlier issued a threat claiming that they will launch a missile strike near the US territory of Guam. The island of Guam is a 210-square-mile dot in the Pacific which is a key US military outpost and home to some 6,000 US troops. Responding to the threat US President Donald Trump said “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen”. Experts have long differed over the North's exact capabilities but it is expected that the nuclear ballistic missiles could reach Alaska and so far as to New York. North Korea has vowed that the new UN sanctions would not stop it from developing its nuclear arsenal, and that it would never negotiate it away.
