U.S. strategic bombers to train in South Korea

North Korea has vehemently criticized the drills since the weekend, saying the exercise precipitates us and South Korean "self-destruction".

The South Korean army's adoption of drones on the battlefield follows the footsteps of the USA and Chinese armed forces, which have already adopted swarming drone tactics.

A South Korean defense official who spoke to News 1 said it is likely any funds being allocated toward upgrades will be recorded "at the end of the year".

The B-1B Lancers were dispatched from Guam, where they are stationed as part of America's "Continuous Bomber Presence" mission in the Asia Pacific.

B-1Bs flyovers have become an increasingly familiar show of force to North Korea, which after three intercontinental ballistic missile tests has clearly moved closer toward building a nuclear arsenal that could viably target the US mainland.

The U.S. and South Korea used over 200 aircraft in their recent drills.

A senior South Korean Air Force official told CNN on Monday that the war games will include attacks against a mock North Korean missile launch site with mock North Korean radars.

The South China Morning Post quotes Li Jie, a Beijing-based military expert, as saying the drills were done specifically to send a message to Donald Trump.

Discussing ways to "peacefully resolve North Korea's nuclear issue" will be on Moon's agenda when he meets President Xi Jinping next week, Moon's office said.

The increasingly tense stand-off between the USA and North Korea may have hit a new high this week.

A United Nations spokesman said Feltman will discuss "issues of mutual interest and concern" with Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho and Vice Minister Pak Myong Guk during his visit, which ends on Friday - as does the military drill.

North Korea said that further escalation through joint drills "will only invite more awful retaliation and precipitate their self-destruction".

North Korea has tested dozens of ballistic missiles, two of which flew over Japan, and conducted its sixth and largest nuclear bomb test in September.

Large military drills being carried out by the United States and South Korea and USA threats of a preemptive war against Pyongyang have made the outbreak of war on the Korean peninsula "an established fact", North Korea's foreign ministry said. -South Korean war games, which it claims are invasion rehearsals.
