N.Korea mobilises aircraft in response to United States bombers

N.Korea mobilises aircraft in response to United States bombers”

Following North Korea's escalating provocations, Seoul and Washington have been working on strengthening defenses.

North Korea's foreign minister recently threatened that his country's military was ready to shoot down American military planes whether or not they were in North Korean airspace.

"The US has pledged to expand the rotational deployment of its strategic assets near the Korean Peninsula", Chung told the political leaders after being asked if there was "any crack" in terms of trust between the security allies.

To strengthen its standalone defense capability, Moon said the military should make all-out efforts to rapidly build the "three-axis" defense platform.

Russian Federation and China have repeatedly warned that the escalating crisis on the Korean Peninsula has no military solution.

The Sinpo-class vehicles are unsafe because they are capable of carrying SLBMs and are being built "continuously", according to South Korea's defense ministry in 2014.

North Korea conducted its sixth and apparently most powerful nuclear test so far on September 3. "That's why it's so important to put all the economic pressure possible in North Korea for a peaceful solution and de-nuclearization of the peninsula".

Still, the move could backfire and destabilize the situation in North Korea, as the US' asymmetrical advantage over North Korea's aging forces could cause an uneasy Kim Jong Un to think he has no choice but to strike first. (STAND-UP) "This was the first time for the nation's official Armed Forces Day ceremony was held at a naval base - - and not the usual Gyeryongdae military complex". There Are 25 million people living in Seoul, just 35 miles from the North Korean border.

"North Korea should be pressured through South Korea-US cooperation, but room for dialogue must be left open", Moon was quoted as saying by parties' officials.

But there are logistical reasons why that can't happen, Jon Wolfsthal, a nuclear expert who served on President Barack Obama's National Security Council, has said.

The U.S. regularly sends aircraft carriers to South Korea during their annual joint military exercises, as well as Los Angeles-class submarines. "After speaking with commanders on the ground, both the US and South Korean military are unified in their resolve".
