North Korea Implies War Is Inevitable After US-South Korean Military Exercise

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.

"Through the drill, the South Korean and USA air forces displayed the allies' strong intent and ability to punish North Korea when threatened by nuclear weapons and missiles", the South Korean military said in a statement.

It involves six F-22s, six F-35As and a dozen F-35Bs, along with more than 200 other fighter jets of the two nations and 12,000 personnel.

"Should the USA miscalculate our patience and light the fuse for a nuclear war, we will surely make the USA dearly pay the consequences with our mighty nuclear force which we have consistently strengthened".

North Korea has vehemently criticised the drills, saying the exercise precipitates USA and South Korean "self-destruction". "The outbreak of war is not in any side's interest". The U.N. did not offer detail as to the subject of the talks, but Feltman is expected to also meet foreign minister Ri and U.N. staff based in the country, the Associated Press reported. And as the world unites against a rogue, nuclear-capable Pyongyang, Washington's mandate to protect United States citizens and crush any aggression from North Korea against USA allies has also crested. "We are ready to support that, we are ready to take part in facilitating such negotiations", Interfax news agency quoted Lavrov as saying.

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.

"We keep stressing that the current situation on the Korean Peninsula is tense and sensitive", foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang told media during a regular briefing. Their exercise was simulated to target key North Korean facilities including nuclear and missile sites. Feltman held talks with deputy foreign minister Pak Myong Gun on Wednesday.
