South Korea urges North to stop all actions that are raising tensions on peninsula

Seoul urged North Korea on Thursday to stop all action that is driving up tension on the Korean Peninsula, told Reuters. The government also said it will seek all methods possible to resolving tensions with the cooperation of other countries.

The remarks were made by presidential Blue House spokesman Park Su-hyun after the standing committee of the National Security Council held a regular meeting to discuss recent events.

Earlier on Thursday, North Korea dismissed warnings by US President Donald Trump that it would face “fire and fury” if it threatened the US as a “load of nonsense” and outlined detailed plans on for a missile strike near the US Pacific territory of Guam.
