CIA chief says'nothing imminent

"Nothing is imminent. But be careful, the increased likelihood of a nuclear missile strikes the United States is a very risky threat", added the director of the u.s. central intelligence agency.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said on Sunday he would not be surprised if North Korea tested another missile, given that it had two tests in July.

Now it was on countries like China and Russian Federation along with US allies like South Korea and Japan to work in tandem to get nuclear weapons out of the region.

Pompeo said "there's nothing imminent today", in response to a question about how anxious should people be over the escalating tensions.

Russia, China and Germany expressed alarm at the escalating rhetoric from Pyongyang and Washington, while the Pentagon said the United States and South Korea would move ahead as planned with a joint military exercise in 10 days, an action sure to further antagonize North Korea. "They expand the envelope", he said.

A senior US diplomat has engaged in back-channel diplomacy with North Korea for several months, addressing the deteriorating relations, as well as the issue of Americans imprisoned in North Korea, the Associated Press reported.

Both sides have used hostile rhetoric, with President Donald Trump threatening "fire and fury" on the North. China, North Korea's only major ally, has urged restraint.

"This administration has made our policy very clear".

"Many people, myself included, would argue for more temperate language than the "fire and fury" kind of thing", Clapper said.

He added that he was confident North Korea would continue to develop its missile capabilities under its leader Kim Jong-Un, "so it wouldn't surprise me if there was another test". The CIA chief described Kim as "rational" and responsive to "adverse circumstances".

In a separate interview on ABC News, Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, struck a similar tone.

Guam is a target because of its naval base and air force base, from which two B-1B supersonic bombers were deployed close to the Korean peninsula on Tuesday.

Mr Trump said the United States military was "locked and loaded", while Pyongyang has accused him of "driving" the Korean peninsula to the "brink of a nuclear war". "This is something that has a risk of getting to a very, very bad place, so America needs to take this very seriously".

President Donald Trump has offered fiery warnings for North Korea, saying that the US military was "locked and loaded".
