North Korea Blasts ‘US Warmongers’ for Nuclear Bombing Drill

“The reckless military provocation is pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula closer to the brink of nuclear war,” Pyongyang’s official KCNA news agency said on Tuesday.

Following training drills by strategic U.S. bombers on the Korean peninsula, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, DPRK, accused the United States on Tuesday of pushing the region toward all-out war as the crisis in East Asia shows few signs of abating.

Monday’s drill, which saw a pair of supersonic B-1B Lancer bombers flying alongside South Korean and Japanese air forces for two to three hours, took place as the U.S. and other countries continue to pressure the DPRK government over its continued attempts to develop its defensive missile programs.
