The United States has delayed a long planned missile test, to avoid a misunderstanding with North Korea.

According to CNN, the missile test was initially scheduled to take place at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Tuesday. Postponing the test was “prudent and wise,” an official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.northkoreaarmy

As threats grow more dramatic, the government in the North told foreign diplomats it could not guarantee their safety, if war broke out. So far,  most nations are keeping their embassies open.

South Korea’s government said it believed North Korea will test a missile around April 10.

Thursday, North Korea moved missiles to its eastern coast and threatened a nuclear strike.

Most military analysts say those missiles could not reach the U.S., but may threaten South Korea, Japan and Guam.

As a precaution, the U.S. has bolstered its missile defense systems in Alaska.
