United States shows off bombers again over Korea

North Korea hackers steal South Korea war plans

A spokesman for North Korea's foreign ministry said last month that the more sanctions the United States and its allies impose on North Korea, the faster the nation will work to develop its nuclear weapons programme, according to North Korea's official KCNA news agency.

The joint military drill was the latest show of force against North Korea, whose leader is engaged in a heated war of words with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Late last month the USA flew B-1Bs over worldwide waters close to North Korea's east coast.

A spokesman from South Korea's Defense Ministry declined to comment, saying the information is classified.

However, Trump said he still had confidence in the secretary of state.

"While I would not characterize them as the best in the world, they are among the best in the world and the best organized", Army Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, told the Senate previous year.

The statement by South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff also revealed that the two bombers carried out air-to-ground missile drills in waters off the east coast of South Korea, then flew over the South to waters between it and China to repeat the drill.

"There is an urgent need for the military to change and update parts that were stolen by North Korea", Lee said.

North Korea has been conducting regular missile tests in recent months as well as testing a nuclear warhead in September, all part of its bid to establish a nuclear deterrent to what it sees as a military threat from the US.

Rhee Cheol-hee, a South Korean lawmaker who sis on its parliamentary defence committee, said 235GB of military documents were swiped from the Defence Integrated Data Centre, adding that 80 per cent of these documents have yet to be identified.

While US Secretary of Defense James Mattis reiterated this week that diplomacy along with global economic sanctions would remain the leading element of US strategy towards blunting North Korea, military options were being prepared.

"They likely remain committed to pursuing targets in the energy sector, especially in South Korea and among the US and its allies, as a means of deterring potential war or sowing disorder during a time of armed conflict".
