US B-1B bombers to fly over Korea in joint exercise

US B-1B bombers to fly over Korea in joint exercise

At the same time, Pyongyang has warned that war is right around the corner. Kim Jong Un's influence is mainly limited to his small, impoverished country, whereas the Kremlin during the Cold War proved adept at bolstering enemies of the USA wherever they were.

The ultimate USA goal is to denuclearize North Korea - and deliberate escalation may be part of that.

The foreign minister referenced a comment by the U.S. envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, in which she said that North Korea would be "utterly destroyed in case of war", calling it a "bloodthirsty tirade".

"B-1B bombers have been regularly dispatched to the Korean peninsula over the past years; however, it seems that the US Air Force might have enhanced its training to better prepare for actual warfare", he said.

China's Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Zheng Zeguang was to meet Matt Pottinger, the head of Asian affairs at the White House's National Security Council, on Thursday to discuss North Korea and trade, a senior United States official said.

In September, after North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear test, B-1Bs flew further north along North Korea's coast than at any time in the past 17 years.

But usually the B-1 flights happen on a almost one-for-one basis.

The US is now in the midst of an unprecedented display of air power with South Korea, that includes the highest-ever number of stealth jets and an increased pace of simulated bomb runs.

North Korea said "should the U.S. miscalculate our patience and light the fuse for a nuclear war, we will surely make the United States dearly pay the consequences with our mighty nuclear force which we have consistently strengthened".

"The remaining question now is: when will the war break out?" "We do not wish for a war but shall not hide from it".

The second planet is about the same size as its sister, but orbits closer to the star, likely making it too hot to be livable. The analysis of the radial velocity measurements also helped them discover another planet revolving around K2-18.

"We hope all relevant parties can maintain calm and restraint and take steps to alleviate tensions and not provoke each other", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said. "We are ready to support that, we are ready to take part in facilitating such negotiations", Interfax news agency quoted Lavrov as saying.

But the talks put forward by North Korea were shot down by the State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, who said talks were "not on the table until they are willing to denuclearize".

Moscow also believes it is Washington's saber-rattling and regular military drills in the region that are "provoking Pyongyang into taking some rash action" after months of restraint, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said following the country's latest ballistic missile test. Threats from various USA officials are serving the same objective, Lavrov added.

USA national security adviser H.R. McMaster said at the weekend that the possibility of war with North Korea was "increasing every day".

Three F/A-18E Super Hornets, assigned to the Eagles of Strike Fighter Attack Squadron 115, in formation over the aircraft carriers USS Ronald Reagan, USS Theodore Roosevelt, USS Nimitz, and their strike groups along with ships from the South Korean navy in the Western Pacific.

A pair of B-1Bs were deployed to South Korea in early November days ahead of President Donald Trump's regional trip.

Officials and private-sector experts of South Korea and China will gather next week to discuss bilateral cooperation and ways to peacefully resolve North Korea's nuclear and missile stalemate, the foreign ministry here said Friday.

Until then, the USA will see through its "maximum pressure" policy and wait out North Korea, which has struggled to maintain control as sanctions wither the economy.

The US has stepped up military pressure on North Korea considerably.

Russian Federation and North Korea blame the U.S. for escalating tensions with its airpower and bomber displays, but for the United States, maybe that's the point.
