President Donald Trump delivers his first speech to Congress
The Blue House says the top security advisers of South Korea and the US discussed the current security situation on the Korean peninsula and in the region, and shared their thoughts on future measures both countries could take to deter threats from North Korea.
Hours earlier, as North Korea's war of words with US President Donald Trump intensified, Pyongyang said it was developing a plan to launch four intermediate-range missiles towards the Pacific island.
Most of the North Korea's weapons have landed in the Sea of Japan.
The U.S. set up the Naval Station in Guam in 1899, designating the whole island as a base.

Andersen Air Force Base houses a Navy helicopter squadron and Air Force bombers that rotate to Guam from the US mainland, including the B-2 stealth bomber, B-1 and B-52. Located on the northeast side of the island, the Air Force base retains a fleet of B52 bombers and fighter jets.

In a guidance note titled "Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat", Guam Homeland Security advised seeking out in advance windowless shelters in homes, schools and offices, with concrete "dense enough to absorb radiation".
Guam Governor Eddie Calvo said the remote Pacific island was accustomed to being a target ever since Washington placed military installations there.
"This time, the North Korean threat is different, and more worrisome because North Korea's Guam-specific threat was reportedly in reaction to President Trump's statement saying: 'North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States". On Friday, the South's benchmark Kospi index plummeted 39.76 points, or 1.69 percent, to its lowest level since May 24. It covers a total of 210 square miles - approximately the size of Chicago. Their location in a USA territory means its military is just hours from potential flashpoints in the western Pacific.
But Mount said Pyongyang's threats to launch multiple missiles at Guam could be a deliberate action to call the United States' bluff on missile defense. Chamorros are the indigenous people of Guam.
