North Korea warns joint US-South Korea military drill risks nuclear war

President Moon Jae-in shakes hands with a surgeon who operated on the North Korean solider that suffered multiple gunshot wounds while defecting to South Korea through the joint security area of Panmunjom in November 2017. The president met the surgeo

North Korean monitoring group 38 North said the tremors could be an indication of "Tired Mountain Syndrome" - a condition where rock becomes increasingly permeable following a below-ground nuclear blast.

North Korea's nuclear test are spreading a "ghost disease" that is deforming babies and sickening civilians exposed to radiation, defectors said in a report published Sunday.

The Trump administration has repeatedly said all options are on the table in dealing with North Korea's ballistic and nuclear weapons programs, including military ones, but that it still prefers a diplomatic option.

On Wednesday, North Korea tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that can fly over 13,000 km (8,080 miles), placing Washington within target range, South Korea said on Friday.

Kim reportedly ordered the production of the tires in September.

The five-day Vigilant Ace drill - involving some 230 aircraft including F-22 Raptor stealth jet fighters - begins Monday, five days after the North test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile believed to be capable of hitting the U.S. mainland in a new challenge to president Donald Trump.

North Korea has repeatedly rejected accusations of human rights abuses and blames sanctions for a dire humanitarian situation.

Six American F-22 Raptor stealth fighters arrived in South Korea on Saturday for a joint flying exercise - in a show of strength following North Korea's missile test earlier this week.

"We heartily celebrate the successful test launch of the Hwasong-15 which showed Chosun (North Korea)'s power and greatness to the whole world", read one banner held up by the crowd, referring to the missile.

Russian Federation and China have proposed a roadmap for defusing the crisis in the region.

"We are trying in the Security Council to find a way to make (North Korea) change its policy and that is a role we play here and that is the role that I will be playing as president of the Security Council".

The months-long nuclear standoff between Kim and Trump has fuelled concerns of another conflict, after the 1950-53 Korean War left much of the peninsula in ruin.

The statement came after Yonhap News reported that six US Raptor stealth fighters planes arrived in South Korea on Saturday for a joint air drill named "Vigilant Ace" scheduled for December 4 to 8.

Kim first made the threat in September in response to Trump's United Nations speech threatening to destroy the North and mocking him as "Little Rocket Man".

"What we are endeavoring to do is to regain our strategic focus", he said.

But analysts remain unconvinced that the North has mastered the technology required to launch and direct a missile, and ensure it survives the hard re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.
