Guam’s Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio stated that he was “happy” with the decrease in tensions between the US and North Korea during a press conference in Guam’s capital Hagatna, Sunday, after Pyongyang said that they would postpone plans to send missiles in the direction of the US island territory.
Tenorio said that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s “backing off” was a “silver-lining around... Еще the cloud” for Guam’s residents. However, he added that the US military would remain on alert as always and that planned joint Ulchi-Freedom Guardian military drills with South Korea, scheduled for August 21, would go ahead.
Tensions between Washington and Pyongyang hit fever pitch last week, with US President Donald Trump threatening North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with «fire, fury and frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before.» The DPRK in turn stated that they could potentially fire intermediate-range missiles near Guam by mid-August, but have since decided to delay the operation and see how the US responds.
