US bombers fly over South Korea after North's 2nd ICBM test

02 Août 2017

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he and President Donald Trump spoke by phone Monday morning Asia time and have agreed to take further action against North Korea.

"We highly value the commitment by Trump to take all necessary steps to protect allied countries" from North Korea's growing missile threat, he added.

South Korea's Defense Ministry said Monday that North Korea will likely conduct its sixth nuclear test and and another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test launch, in the wake of two controversial launches in July.

The United States has flown two supersonic bombers over the Korean Peninsula in a show of force against North Korea following its latest intercontinental ballistic missile test.

The defense committee chief also said that the fact that the missile fell some 170 km away from Hokkaido implied that Pyongyang is now capable of accurately manipulating its long-range missile's trajectory. "We'll handle North Korea", the president said during a Cabinet meeting.

Friday's test was created to show the Hwasong-14 missile's maximum range with a "large-sized heavy nuclear warhead", a statement from Pyongyang's Korean Central News Agency said.

As the tensions with North Korea have escalated, Mr Trump has often treated Mr Xi in public as a friend who was valiantly, though unsuccessfully, trying to bring North Korea around. I believe him. If I were China, I would believe him, too, and do something about it.

"He's told me that".

"As much as I would like North Korea to freeze and end its nuclear program, no combination of threats, engagement, negotiations, and sanctions, has produced that outcome", he wrote. B-1 bombers have been sent to South Korea for flyovers several times this year in response to the North's banned missile tests, and also following the death of a US college student last month after he was released by North Korea in a coma.

Suggestions that the U.S. could force a regime change in North Korea have also only further inflamed tensions. How does the small, isolated country keep getting what it wants and needs?

Analysts raise several issues when it comes to military options against North Korea -- one being former Secretary of State Colin Powell's "Pottery Barn" rule of foreign relations: You break it, you own it. According to USA intelligence assessments, Pyongyang's submarine fleet comprises about 70 subs, but few are thought to be new or sophisticated enough to fire missiles and the submarine-based launch program is still in its nascent stages.

The U.S. Missile Defense Agency said a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, system located in Kodiak, Alaska, was successfully tested on Saturday night, Alaska time. He's not going to allow - President Trump - the ability of this madman to have a missile to hit America. Western powers said it was an ICBM, while Russian Federation said it was medium-range.

"Problem is she makes herself and the United Nations process irrelevant if she says there's nothing we can do here", said John Delury, an expert on Chinese-Korean relations at Seoul's Yonsei University.
