On Wednesday, Trump also characterized a diplomatic deal with North Korea brokered under former President Bill Clinton as a failure.
The KCNA report listed a string of perceived USA provocations - including a litany of bombastic threats from President Trump, recent deployments of a U.S. nuclear submarine and aircraft carrier to the region, and a new round of "high intensity" United States and South Korea joint naval drills.
US President Donald Trump has not tweeted any threats to "Little Rocket Man" in response to Pyongyang's saber-rattling.
Two key officials in charge of North Korea's missile development were absent at recent major events, a mass rally in Pyongyang on Saturday and the Workers Party anniversary on Tuesday. But North Korea's latest messaging indicates the regime may be ready to carry out what would be its most provocative missile test to date - firing four missiles over Japan and landing around 30 to 40 kilometers (18 to 25 miles) off the coast of the tiny island.
The North Korean state agency issued this comment on the same day that South Korean and U.S. naval forces announced they will conduct high-profile joint maneuvers in waters off the Korean peninsula next week to counter the growing threat of Pyongyang.
However many will suggest Trump is responsible for the rise in tension with North Korea, given the hawkish rhetoric he has adopted since taking over from Obama.
"Right now we think the threat is manageable but over time, if it grows beyond where it is today, well, let's hope that diplomacy works", he said.
Anyone anxious that the United States-North Korea impasse is heading to a nuclear showdown should relax. A day earlier, John Kelly said North Korea's potential ability to hit the USA with missiles should concern Americans, according to CNN.
"We can not allow this to happen".
Experts speculate that Pyongyang could launch in the next few days a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) coinciding with the Chinese Communist Party Congress, which starts on October 18th, or in the face of Trump's visit to the region.
