"In Daedong County of South Pyongan Province, more than 20,000 students, party members and laborers filed enlistment or reenlistment requests", the newspaper said.

North Korean state-media on Wednesday showed images of a mobilisation of tens of thousands of citizens parading through Kim Il-sung square in Pyongyang carrying banners in defence of leader Kim Jong-un and denouncing the latest United Nations sanctions to punish the regime for its missile launches.

Speaking with Mr. Rose during his trip to Germany, Mr. Obama also said that USA forces were now reanalyzing the strategic positioning of America's missile defense systems.

North Korea has previously mobilized large crowds to show its resolve when tensions escalate. The family reunion project materialized decades later, in a 2000 summit meeting between President Kim Dae-jung and North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, who agreed to regularly hold the humanitarian event. The Olympics would open North Korea to the outside world and everyone's ego would stroked. U.S. officials then told NBC that Washington has a plan for a preemptive strike on North Korean missile sites with bombers stationed in Guam, should Trump order it.

"There are direct threats of deploying [military] power", he said, adding that "the side that is stronger and smarter" should take the first step to defuse tensions.

Earlier this week, nuclear-armed North Korea threatened to strike the United States and its Pacific territory of Guam.

"It's a total mismatch", Ivashov, who now heads the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, said of a possible confrontation between Washington and Pyongyang.

In a provocative Interview which aired previous year on "CBS This Morning", President Obama told host Charlie Rose that America has the ability to respond to Kim Jong-un's threats with decisive nuclear force, but the fallout of such a response would be disastrous for South Korea.

The plane could then spy on North Korean communications with the help of USA personel.

Ivashov was also skeptical of Pyongyang's threats to target Guam in case of an attack.

United States military chiefs have called on the RAF to aid an worldwide espionage operation and send British spy planes to conduct surveillance over the Korean Peninsula.
