South Korea Convenes Emergency Security Meeting over Pyongyang Threats

SEOUL – The South Korean government Thursday convened an emergency meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) after North Korea threatened to attack the United States military bases in Guam amid escalating tensions on the peninsula.

The meeting, scheduled for Thursday at 3 pm local time (6.00 GMT), will be presided over by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his security adviser Chung Eui-yong, according to a statement from the presidential office.

The meeting was convened shortly after North Korea threatened to carry out a strike on the US territory of Guam, which houses two US military bases, with four intermediate-range missiles.

Pyongyang has hardened its rhetoric with Washington as tensions between Pyongyang and Washington have escalated following the North Korean regime’s threat to attack Guam and a strong warning by US President Donald Trump.

North Korea has been threatening in recent days to attack the United States in retaliation for a new package of sanctions imposed by the United Nations over Pyongyang’s recent missile tests.
