China Conducts Military Drills in Response to Vigilant ACE

The bomber flew from the Pacific U.S. -administered territory of Guam and joined U.S. F-22 and F-35 stealth fighters in the annual exercises, which run until Friday.

A total of 12,000 United States service members are taking part in the annual Vigilant Ace drills alongside South Korean troops.

South Korean government officials, including President Moon Jae-in, have said the North's latest ICBM is their most capable yet, although it has several critical points to prove, such as re-entry technology and terminal stage guidance.

The bombing was part of passing in South Korea jointly with the United States of America large-scale maneuvers of the air force Vigilant ACE 18.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday expressed concerns over the continued deployment of USA strategic assets.

Bad weather and a temporary runway closure forced the Air Force to move USA fighter jets and Warthogs to a South Korean base Thursday during joint war games that have raised tensions with North Korea.

China and Russian Federation have staged massive military drills in airspace and waters near the Korean Peninsula to counter a big U.S.

Pyongyang blamed U.S. President Donald Trump for raising tensions and warned at the weekend the Vigilant Ace exercise was pushing tensions on the Korean peninsula towards "a flare-up", according to North Korean state media.

On Monday, the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) flew exercises in "routes and areas it has never flown before" over both the Yellow Sea that divides China and the Korean Peninsula as well as the East China Sea between China, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.

North Korea has long spoken out against joint drills between the US and South Korea.

The North's KCNA state news agency, citing a foreign ministry spokesman, also said on Saturday the Trump administration was "begging for nuclear war by staging an extremely unsafe nuclear gamble on the Korean peninsula".

"Certainly when the US seriously contemplates military action family members should be removed". In November, Pyongyang's ambassador to the United Nations ruled out negotiations with Washington, citing America's "hostile policy" against his country and continuing drills between the U.S. and Seoul.

The Trump Administration does not seem to consider the North Korean dictator to be a rational actor, and therefore, seems to believe he can not be deterred. By now, we all know that North Korea's been hard at work dong what they do best: Launching test missiles and fiery rhetoric. Feltman held talks with deputy foreign minister Pak Myong Gun on Wednesday.
