Japanese media said Tokyo was deploying its Patriot missile defence system following Pyongyang's threat to fire ballistic missiles over the country towards Guam.

President Donald Trump said Friday that North Korea would "truly regret" any overt threat or action toward Guam or other US territories, participated in a discussion on apprenticeships and has a 5 p.m. eastern meeting scheduled with USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
