USA bombers conduct bombing drill in S. Korea in warning to North

Kim Jong Un was seen smoking a cigarette beside experimental engines on North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missile before it was launched.

"North Korea's actions are a threat to our allies, partners, and homeland", said Gen. Terrence O' Shaughnessy, Pacific Air Forces commander, in a July 7 statement.

The US has once again flown two of its nuclear-capable supersonic bombers near the demilitarised zone (DMZ) that separates North and South Korea. U.S. bombers carried out a rare live fire drill in South Korea on July 8, flying close to the DMZ in a show of force after Pyongyang's latest missile test, the South's defence ministry said.

Two U.S. officials said the show of force was meant to "send a clear message" to North Korea, ruled by the dictator Kim Jong Un.

"US bombers and Republic of Korea fighters are just two of many lethal military options at our disposal", said Lieutenant General Thomas Bergeson, US Forces Korea deputy commander.

The launch by the self-declared nuclear regime was condemned by the United States and others.

The Blue House, the residence of the president, said Moon urged G-20 members to pay close attention to South Korea's efforts to monitor the situation in North Korea with the help of global organizations and civic groups and to offer support within the bounds of worldwide sanctions against Pyongyang.

After flying to the Korean Peninsula, the B-1Bs were joined by South Korean F-15 fighter jets and U.S. Air Force F-16 fighter jets, Pacific Air Forces stated.

Pacific Air Forces said the demonstration was part of the "ironclad" USA commitment to its allies against the North Korean threat.

Tillerson rejected Beijing and Moscow's proposal for the United States and South Korea to suspend their joint military drills in return for a freeze on North Korea's weapons testing, saying the North's programs have already reached a high level of capability.

Both leaders also discussed increasing bilateral trade ties as the two countries prepare to celebrate the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations next year.
