After the heated talks about the nuclear threats to the American territory of Guam, the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has backed down on the attack.
This was revealed in a tweet by the United States President Donald Trump when he commended North Korea for calling off its missile attack on the US military base in Guam.

Kim Jong Un of North Korea made a very wise and well reasoned decision. The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!

The North Korean state media reported Tuesday that Kim had reviewed a previously announced plan to fire the missiles on a trajectory over western Japan, but had decided not to go ahead with the proposal for now.
Trump had earlier threatened North Korea with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” after news broke that they had developed a nuclear warhead that could fit atop a missile.
Tensions between the two countries have been at their highest point in months after Trump made a series of inflammatory comments against the rogue state on August 8 and also saying that there would be “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if North Korea made fired a shot.
