He said he wouldn't discuss any potential military options, but he did say the USA would retaliate if North Korea attacks Guam, which is a US territory. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".

Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says Australia would not automatically be drawn into any war between North Korea and the United States.

Ms Bishop says Australia has been in "constant discussion" with the United States over the issue, but it wouldn't necessarily be drawn into conflict, should matters escalate that far.
