US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Tuesday that Washington remains "interested" in engaging in dialogue with North Korea, but he warned that this depends on whether that country's leader, Kim Jong-un, will create the conditions for that to occur.

North Korea's state-run media reported on Tuesday that Kim was briefed on the specific details of a missile strike.

In a joint commentary in the Wall Street Journal, Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said "the USA is willing to negotiate with Pyongyang", but appeared to reject China's "suspension-for-suspension" proposal, in which North Korea would halt further nuclear and missile tests in return for the US and South Korea stopping joint military drills in the region.

North Korea said last week it was finalising plans to launch four missiles into the waters near the US Pacific territory of Guam, and its army would report the attack plan to Kim and wait for his order.

North Korea's announcement provoked strong condemnation from not only the United States but also Japan, over whose mainland the missiles would have to fly to reach Guam.

But amid the threats made by the two provocative leaders, South Korea President Moon Jae-in expressed his hope for a peaceful resolution to the growing tensions, which centre on fears North Korea is close to its aim of being able to send a nuclear missile to the United States mainland following recent tests.

Trump tweeted last Thursday that USA military solutions are "locked and loaded" and told reporters perhaps his "fire and fury" warning "wasn't tough enough".

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi spoke to his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday in a telephone conversation focused on "ways to get out of the confrontational spiral on the Korean peninsula", according to the Russian foreign ministry.

"I can say this: You're going to go up, like, tenfold with the expenditure of no money", Trump said during the call which the governor posted on social media. We do not seek an excuse to garrison USA troops north of the Demilitarized Zone. "For us that is war", Mattis said.

"I don't think the kind of relationship the North Koreans want is screaming back and forth between them and the Americans, but they'll take that. China can shut down North Korea instantly", former NATO Commander James Stavridis told VOA's Serbian service.

That threat came last week, escalating already high tensions between Washington and Pyongyang.

Still, President Trump had warned the North that the USA military was locked and loaded.

A University of Guam professor from IL told ABC News she is fearful of the rhetoric that is being used between North Korean and us leaders.
