Nonetheless, US officials announced on Wednesday morning that they had conducted a missile defence test that resulted in the successful intercept of a medium-range ballistic missile off the coast of Hawaii.

North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un has promised more missile flights over Japan, insisting his nuclear-armed nation's launch was a mere "curtain-raiser", in the face of U.N. condemnation and USA warnings of severe repercussions.

Mrs May told journalists that the United Kingdom would "continue to work with our worldwide partners" to pressure Kim Jong Un's regime to end its "illegal tests".

Its leader, Kim Jong-un, said on Wednesday that the test could be a "curtain raiser" for more such tests in the Pacific.

The agency did not disclose any other details about the supposed Guam attack.

But North Korea vowed it won't "flinch an inch" in the face of United States threats.

Kim had made a similar statement following threats to launch a siege of Guam in August. The date passed without incident.

But the country's nuclear program wasn't as stable during the Clinton and Bush administrations. The Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai Island launched the target missile late Tuesday, Aug. 29. It landed in the water and no one was harmed.

Trump's tweet comes following an official statement released by the White House, in which the president said that "all options are on the table" in regard to the current tensions in East Asia.

There's been virtually no US aid given to North Korea since around 2009.

"No", James Mattis responded to the question: "Are we out of diplomatic solutions for North Korea?".

The United States flew some of its most advanced warplanes - including two nuclear-capable bombers - to South Korea on Thursday for bombing drills intended as a show of force against North Korea.
