Seoul shares open lower amid escalating tensions over North Korea

Seoul shares open lower amid escalating tensions over North Korea”

"Basically, we established a quick communication network which is the first thing that we have to put in place so that we will be able to warn them (Filipinos) about the impending threat", he said. "What may be a surprise is that this has come six months to a year sooner than folks expected". The Aug. 7 mission demonstrated the US commitment to regional allies, increased readiness and exercised the right under global law "to fly legally in the place and time of our choosing", officials said.

US President Donald Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Thursday that he will respond forcefully to any North Korean attack on the US or its allies.

The already high tensions on the Korean Peninsula spiked further this week as the North threatened to fire missiles into waters around Guam, a key strategic point for the USA military where some of its strategic weapons are deployed, including B-1B and B-52 strategic bombers and the THAAD missile defense system.

"My guess is Kim Jong Un will deliver on this threat", Congressman Mike Coffman, who represents Aurora and sits on the Armed Services Committee said.

Ellsworth B-1s were last deployed to Guam in August 2016, when they took over continuous-bomber-presence operations from the B-52 Stratofortress bomber squadrons from Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, and Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana.

But Mistry said the focus should now be on getting out of the shouting match.

"I believe we might need a complete defense reform at the level of a rebirth instead of making some improvements or modifications", the president said while meeting with six new top commanders of the three armed services in a promotion ceremony held at the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae. "What we can try to do is look for least bad options and really move step-by-step".
