Moon met with his new military chiefs at Cheong Wa Dae and said the task facing South Korea is to "acquire the military capability to respond to North Korea's nuclear and missile provocations".

The bombers have been "threatening and blackmailing" North Korea through their frequent visits to the sky above South Korea, it said.

The remarks followed North Korea's warning of preemptive missile strikes against the United States military base of Guam in response to two U.S. strategic bombers sent on Tuesday to South Korea.

"Obviously, these are provocative actions aimed against security of our country and the worldwide community".

According to KCNA, it is planned to launch four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles, which are supposed to fly some 3,400 kilometers over Japan's Prefectures of Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi to drop into water some 30-40 kilometers off Guam.

South Korea's military said on Thursday North Korea's recent statements regarding striking the US territory of Guam are a challenge against Seoul and the U.S. These launches, according to North Korea, are meant to contain USA forces in the Asia-Pacific region.

Rhetoric in the conflict heated up this week after US President Donald Trump warned North Korea it would face "fire and fury" if it did not stop making threats against Washington.

China, which is North Korea's closest ally despite its anger at Pyongyang's missile and nuclear programs, described the situation as "complex and sensitive", and urged calm and a return to talks. "The government plans to commit constant efforts to the peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and reconciliation and cooperation between South and North", he said. "It's also in close communication with China and Russian Federation", the official said.

"Nuclear weapons can not be tolerated under any circumstances", he said.
