North Korea lashed out at the US after the United States conducted joint exercises with the South Korean bombers from the air force, accusing them of reckless provocation.
Pyongyang described the exercises, which involved two bombers B1-B and "nuclear bombometateli drill", which will make nuclear war more likely. North Korean state media called the President of the United States Donald trump a "warmonger".
The outbreak occurred when officials said that South Korea started the us missile defense system. This statement appeared a week before the presidential election in South Korea. The latest bellicose statement from Pyongyang was a response to the deployment of two American bombers near the Korean Peninsula on Monday in the framework of joint exercises with South Korea and air forces of Japan.
North Korean state news Agency KCNA condemned the teachings in typically bombastic terms. "Reckless military provocation that pushes the situation on the Korean Peninsula closer to the brink of nuclear war," said KCNA.
The last rhetorical struggle has arisen against the backdrop of increased military activity around the Korean Peninsula. One us official said that the missile system THAAD is now able to shoot down North Korean missile, although it works in limited capacity. The official said the United States hopes to install additional units to increase the coverage area of South Korea.
THAAD was deployed in South Korea from the United States in response to increased missile and nuclear tests of North Korea, but the defense system provoked sharp opposition from China and Russia, whose territory lies within the system. China once again expressed his dissatisfaction on Tuesday, calling on both parties "to immediately stop the deployment."
"We will also firmly adopt the necessary measures to protect our own interests" - said foreign Ministry spokesman China Geng Shuang.
It is assumed that THAAD will not be fully operational until the end of the year, but officials from the U.S. and South Korea publicly emphasized the need to accelerate the deployment of this technology as tensions associated with Pyongyang.
