North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly dropped plans to launch a missile at Guam- for now. Kim was pictured for the first time in weeks last night, examining plans for a strike on American military targets in Guam.
Pyongyang’s state media said Kim “examined the plan for a long time” after his army chiefs handed him a proposal.
North Korea said last week that it would finalise by August 15, its detailed plan to fire four intermediate-range ballistic missiles up to 18 miles off Guam’s coast.
However, it seems that plan has been dropped. The country’s army is now awaiting Kim’s approval.
US President Donald Trump previously warned Kim that he would be met with “fire and fury” if he dared attack US- territory- Guam.
Guam, a Pacific island which is home to two US military bases, strategic bombers and about 163,000 people.
