KCNA: N Korea says USA threats make war unavoidable on Korean peninsula

Force B-1B Lancer assigned to the 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron takes-off to fly a bilateral mission with Japanes

But China has been vocal in its criticism of North Korea's nuclear and missiles programme, as well as attacking the USA and South Korea for ratcheting up tensions.

The bomber flew from the Pacific U.S. -administered territory of Guam and joined U.S. F-22 and F-35 stealth fighters in the annual exercises, which run until Friday.

"We do not wish for a war but shall not hide from it, and 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 South China Morning Post quotes Li Jie, a Beijing-based military expert, as saying the drills were done specifically to send a message to Donald Trump. Chinese Air Force spokesperson Shen Jinke appeared on China Central Television (CCTV) on December 5 to say that the Chinese Air Force had conducted drills in the Yellow Sea (known in South Korea as the West Sea) and in the East China Sea.

The relatively paltry funds will reportedly be tapped to reinforce the unit and are deemed insufficient to equip it with a transport plane or helicopter to carry out its mission, according to UPI, which picked up the story from News 1 in South Korea. The remaining question now is: "when will the war break out", the spokesman said.

About 28,500 USA troops are stationed in South Korea to deter North Korean aggression after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.

North Korea hates such displays of American military might at close range and typically uses strong language to condemn them as invasion rehearsals.

North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Pak Myong Guk met Feltman on Wednesday in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, and discussed bilateral cooperation and other issues of mutual interest, KCNA said.

South Korea's military says the Hwasong-15 the North tested last week has the potential to strike targets as far away as 13,000 kilometres (8,100 miles), which would put Washington within reach.

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

North Korea said that further escalation through joint drills "will only invite more bad retaliation and precipitate their self-destruction".

"Through the drill, the South Korean and USA air forces displayed the allies' strong intent and ability to punish North Korea when threatened by nuclear weapons and missiles", the JCS said in a statement.

China reacted to the roll-out with an unofficial embargo of South Korea, which hit the country's tourism industry and prompted Chinese consumers to boycott Korean brands.
