United Nations envoy meets North Korean foreign minister

General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman left talks with North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Pak Myong Guk at the People's Palace of Culture in Pyongyang North Korea Wednesday Dec. 6 2017. The senior United Nation

As the US and South Korea conducted an annual power exercise in Korean peninsula this week, the tensions in the region have hit a new high.

Pyongyang has warned that it won't avoid a war with the United States although it does not want one, denouncing senior USA officials' recent hard-line remarks against the reclusive state.

In an article published by the state-controlled news agency KCNA on Wednesday, a spokesperson for North Korea's foreign ministry called the start of war "an established fact".

On Wednesday, a US B-1B bomber flew from the Pacific US-administered territory of Guam to join the exercises, which will run until Friday. "We condemned it and demanded that North Korea fully complied with the resolution of the UN Security Council".

"We are not hoping for a war but we are also not hiding from one".

When the United States and South Korea were busy conducting the annual air power exercise over the Korean Peninsula, China staged exercises above the Yellow and East Seas, areas in which it has never flown before.

Donald Trump Jr grilled in Russian probe
In a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, Trump Jr said the meeting was less than half and hour long. This is silly. "Attorney-client privilege" shields conversations between attorneys and clients.

"Through the drill, the South Korean and United States air forces displayed the allies' strong intent and ability to punish North Korea when threatened by nuclear weapons and missiles", the JCS said in a statement. Pompeo's remarks infuriated the North Korean regime at the time, and they have done so again.

In this photo provided by South Korea Defense Ministry, U.S. Air Force B-1B bomber, right top, flies over the Korean Peninsula with South Korean fighter jets and U.S. fighter jets during the combined aerial exercise. The Pentagon said it has no plans to do so.

"These confrontational war-mongering remarks can not be interpreted in any other way but as a warning to us to be prepared for a war on the Korean peninsula", said the spokesman, Reuters reports.

"I have to brief the secretary general first" was all U.N. Undersecretary General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman said when asked for details of his trip.

The article referred to National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who said chances of war with North Korea are "increasing every day", and Senator Lindsey Graham, who said North Korea's latest missile launch meant war.

The hardline rhetoric came as a former American diplomat representing the United Nations met with North Korea's foreign minister in the highest-level U.N. visit to Pyongyang since 2010.
