Guam – According to CNN U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson landed on Guam Wednesday night as part of a pre-planned trip.

It’s not clear whether or not Tillerson is still on island but while enroute to Guam Tillerson gave an interview in which he said that despite the threats made by North Korea to launch a missile attack against Guam he did not consider rerouting his flight. Tillerson said, “I do not believe there is any imminent threat in my own view.”

Tillerson said he’s hopeful that with this “pressure campaign” that the entire world has “joined us in” and with the engagement of China and Russia that the North Korean regime will “reconsider the current pathway that they are on and think about engaging in a dialogue about a different future.”

Tillerson says that talks are what is needed now adding that “Americans should sleep well at night and have no concerns about this particular rhetoric over the last few days. I think the President again as Commander in Chief I think he felt it necessary to issue a very strong statement directly to North Korea but I think what the President was just reaffirming is the United States has the capability to fully defend itself from any attack and defend our allies and we will do so and so the American people should sleep well at night.”
