North Korea on Verge of Catastrophe at Nuclear Test Site, China Warns

A U.S. military statement confirmed the B-2 mission was conducted to "familiarise aircrew with air bases and operations in different geographic combatant commands, enabling them to maintain a high state of readiness and proficiency".

Reports of the exercises come as U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis recently stated that threats of a nuclear missile attack by the regime are accelerating.

Pyongyang conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test in early September, detonating what it claimed was a hydrogen bomb that can be loaded onto an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). In 2013, the U.S military directed two B-2 stealth bombers over the region on a round-trip mission.

With a range of just over 11,000km and able to be refuelled in the air, the B-2 is capable of dropping a nuclear bomb on any target on the planet.

The US Air Force base in Guam has received a total of 816,393 munitions assets valued at more than $123 million between August and September, according to the US military. But he also emphasized that the USA desires a "diplomatic solution" to the two nation's differences.

Pyongyang has threatened to shoot down USA bombers if they violate the hermit state's air space.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un visits the Command of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army at an unknown location in North Korea.

He said China was anxious about North Korea's nuclear attack since it would destroy the region immediately.

As tensions between the US and North Korea continue to grow, the regime has been conducting safety measures for its people amid threats of nuclear war.

The last time these types of exercises reportedly took place in the secretive state was in 1994 when the United States and North Korea were on "the brink of war".

"It is a trite trick used by the sinister and crafty Japanese reactionaries to kick up an anti-DPRK smear campaign in order to mislead the public.and maintain power whenever they are thrown into a serious ruling crisis due to political inability and all kinds of corruption and irregularities", the statement said. The drills were not conducted in the nation's capital of Pyongyang.

South Korea's government said Wednesday it expected the Trump administration to send help as the president prepared to tour Japan, South Korea and China this week.
