New missile test feared as S. Korea-US drill starts

Earlier this week two supersonic U.S. heavy bombers flew over the Korean peninsula, staging the first night-time joint aviation exercises with Japan and South Korea, the latest in a series of flyovers.

"Many countries are engaged in arms sales, but the U.S. is abusing it for world domination beyond commercial purposes", said a report in the North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun.

"Trump called for total destruction of our state and people at the United Nations arena and continues to bring nuclear strategic assets into South Korea and its vicinity, pushing the situation on the peninsula to the brink of war", Rodong Sinmun said.

The USS Ronald Reagan will conduct the ten-day joint drills in waters east and west of South Korea.

North Korea's state-run media agency KCNA on Saturday criticized the joint military exercise, calling it a "reckless act of war maniacs".

"In various locations in the North, TELs (transporter erector launchers) have repeatedly appeared and disappeared".

The ruling party's powerful propaganda apparatus urged the executives to ensure that news stories on North Korea do not exacerbate public frustration and asked that stories are not covered in depth even if they are based on original information or perspectives, the sources said.

A day earlier, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said while the USA would never allow for the North to develop the ability to strike the United States, the regime's missile threat is "manageable" for now. Trump met his national security team on Tuesday and discussed a "range of options" to respond to Pyongyang's repeated recent nuclear and ballistic missile tests. The allies' militaries will participate in the Maritime Counter Special Operation, which is created to defend the infiltration of North Korea's special warfare forces. The US navy said yesterday that a US aircraft carrier will lead the drill in the coming week, a fresh show of force against North Korea as tensions soar over the hermit state's weapons programme.

Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters that the intensifying war rhetoric against Pyongyang will bring nothing but "global, planetary catastrophe and a huge loss of human life".

"If they do that then the rest of the worldwide community will look to work with them", Mr Tehan said.
