South Korea and the United States began five days of air combat drills on Monday, less than a week after Pyongyang tested an intercontinental ballistic missile it said put all of the U.S. mainland within its reach. November 10 this year, the Secretary of State and Chief of Staff of the US Air Force Heather Wilson said that at the present time the US Air Force also operates 120 F-35A fighter bombers.

"The great success in the test-fire of ICBM Hwasong-15 is a priceless victory won by the great and heroic people of the DPRK who have upheld the WPK's line on the simultaneous development of the two fronts with loyalty", North Korea said in a statement, "without the slightest vacillation, despite the vicious challenges by the US imperialists and their followers and manifold difficulties".

North Korea has described Trump as "insane".

Meanwhile, the U.S. has flown a supersonic B1 bomber over South Korea in a show of force against Pyongyang, AP reports.

North Korea threatened Sunday that if the United States continues to conduct joint military operations with South Korea "nuclear war [may break out] at any moment", Sky News reported.

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.


US Presidential Donald Trump has repeatedly stated that China is key to unlocking the North Korea issue. It also comes during the Vigilant Ace aerial exercise that China and Russian Federation warned the U.S. about.

North Korea suggested the drills they will push the area to the "brink of war".

The U.S. Seventh Air Force has said the exercise is not in response to any incident or provocation.

The newly proposed combat unit will take on a number of tasks including monitoring and patroling high-payoff targets like senior North Korean military officials and weapons of mass destruction, and attacking them in case of an emergency to minimize casualties, the source said. Additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea today.

Russia also has communication channels open with North Korea and is ready to exert its influence, the RIA news agency quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov as saying on Tuesday.
