US Defence Secretary James Mattis has said America still hopes to solve the North Korea crisis using diplomacy.

And while Mattis warned on Wednesday that North Korea would be "grossly overmatched" by the US and its allies if a military conflict were to break out, some senior administration officials have provided a counterpoint to the President's more inflammatory rhetoric.

"The American effort is diplomatically led, it has diplomatic traction, it is gaining diplomatic results and I want to stay right there right now", Mattis said the event.

He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody's seen before, what will happen in North Korea, ' Trump told reporters in New Jersey, without offering specifics.

Hours after President Donald Trump intensified his threat to rain "fire and fury" upon North Korea, Mattis said war would be "catastrophic".

Australia's prime minister says his country would come to the aid of the United States if North Korea attacks Guam.

North Korea Gen. Kim Rak Gyom said Trump is "extremely getting on the nerves" of his soldiers by making comments that showed his "senility" again.

Mattis made the remarks to reporters at an event in California on Thursday, adding that the USA prefers a diplomatic approach to the North Korean threat.

'The tragedy of war is well-enough known it doesn't need another characterization beyond the fact that it would be catastrophic'. But he says that, until that happens, the U.S.

'His view and the view of the administration is that the way to resolve the situation with North Korea.is through these economic sanctions.

A separate statement by the Korean People's Army (KPA) also threatened to turn Seoul into "a sea of fire", comments condemned yesterday as "thoughtless" by South Korean military officials. "The Secretary General welcomes all initiatives that will help deescalate tensions and welcomes a return to diplomacy". And despite Trump's public bluster, the USA has reportedly been carrying on quiet, back-channel negotiations with North Korea through that country's United Nations representatives.

The North Korea threat has been a foreign policy priority for the Trump administration since it took office in January, but it has taken center stage since Pyongyang test fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month.

Japan and South Korea vowed a strong reaction if the North were to go through with the plan.
