USA flies bombers over Korean peninsula for drill

USA flies bombers over Korean peninsula for drill

The United States also conducted Joint Air Force exercises with South Korea.

Japanese media has claimed that King-Jong-un led North Korea is secretly developing nuclear-capable submarines.

"I would hope that we shoot it down as a message to the North Koreans and to other people, like in Japan, who are counting on us", he said Tuesday during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing.

The foreign ministry statement, carried by the country's official news agency KCNA, said: "The increased moves of the USA and its vassal forces to impose sanctions and pressure on the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] will only increase our pace towards the ultimate completion of the state nuclear force".

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel also said in comments reported Monday by the Bild daily that the world should wait for the sanctions to bite, but that "visions and courageous steps" such as direct negotiations with North Korea are also needed.

Pyongyang conducted two intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests in July and earlier this month said it successfully tested a miniaturized hydrogen bomb that can be placed on an ICBM.

The country's commerce with China was partially responsible for an estimated economic growth of 3.9% previous year, Bloomberg news agency reports.

Powerful quake jolts Mexico, sways buildings in capital
A magnitude-7.1 quake struck the central Mexican state of Puebla on Tuesday afternoon, the US Geological Survey said. AFP journalists captured images of collapsed buildings, a auto crushed by rubble, and debris-strewn streets.

According to the Department of Foreign Affairs, Cayetano - who will attend the 72nd Session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in NY - will consult other Southeast Asian foreign ministers on how to reduce tensions in the Korean Peninsula.

Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In spoke by phone on Saturday and vowed to exert "stronger pressure" on the North, with Moon's office warning that further provocation would put it on a "path of collapse".

The true intention of the U.S.is to appease the opposition from several countries against the escalation of tension and the outbreak of war in the Korean peninsula and the region and involve them in the sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK by all means. Both countries have repeatedly called for a diplomatic solution to the crisis.

Gabriel said that requires direct negotiations with North Korea and argued that the U.S., China and Russian Federation should participate.

Later, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told reporters that "some related parties" - a reference to the US and North Korea - "keep sending threatening messages both in words and deeds that include warnings of military action".

However, North Korea gets all this cash for explosions through its exports of oil and natural gas, which are its major source of income.
