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

North Korea's foreign ministry, according to Reuters, said the USA made war inevitable after its "confrontational warmongering" and Thursday's drill involving 230 aircraft.

"The overall scale of forces helps contribute to a realistic site picture for those participating, especially with regard to air assets integrating in a war-time scenario with their support personnel and equipment", the USA military said.

"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".

The unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman said: 'The large-scale nuclear war exercises conducted by the United States in succession are creating touch-and-go situation on the Korean peninsula and series of violent war remarks coming from the USA high-level politicians amid such circumstances have made an outbreak of war on the Korean peninsula an established fact. "The ones that will suffer the most are ordinary people".

Lavrov said he had passed on to Tillerson Pyongyang's desire for direct talks. "We are ready to support that, we are ready to take part in facilitating such negotiations", Lavrov reportedly said.

But the US's F-22 is fully stealth, and North Korea likely can't hope to down it.

Another state department spokesperson, Justin Higgins, said it was not enough for North Korea to freeze its nuclear program, and it "must be prepared to come to the table ready to chart a course to "cease and roll back" that program.

Russian Federation and China both responded by pushing the US and North Korea away from war.

While B-1Bs are no longer equipped to carry nuclear weapons of their own, they would be key to any strike targeting major North Korean facilities, he said.

And now more than ever, both sides are deterred from conflict.

U.S. national security adviser H.R. McMaster said at the weekend the possibility of war was "increasing every day".

Meanwhile China, North Korea's neighbour and lone major ally, again urged calm and said war was not the answer.

An article in North Korea's ruling party's mouthpiece Rodong Sinmun on Tuesday accused the US of trying to provoke a second Korean war and planning a pre-emptive strike. The Pentagon said it has "no intent" to move out any dependants.

The number of jets in the air between the US and South Korea is 230.

In response to a huge U.S. military exercise over South Korea, the rogue state said: 'We will make the USA dearly pay the consequences with our mighty nuclear force'.

The rising tensions coincide with a rare visit to the isolated North by the UN's political affairs chief Jeffrey Feltman this week, the highest-level United Nations official to visit North Korea since 2012. Feltman held talks with deputy foreign minister Pak Myong Gun on Wednesday.
