McMaster: Potential for war with North Korea 'increasing every day'

04 December, 2017, 01:10 | Author: Irene Delgado
  • The bunker which costs around £20,000 is equipped with enough space for four people- though can be modified to take up to eight

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.

The KMA said the quake is a natural one but is presumed to have occurred in the aftermath of the nuke test.

The latest missile flew higher than any others previously tested, before falling into Japanese waters.

The potential for war is increasing every day but armed conflict is not the only solution, he told a defence forum.

"We are in a race to be able to solve this problem", McMaster said. "It's something that places us at direct risk but places the world at risk".

"North Korea is continuing to pursue its ICBM in a methodical and pragmatic manner, making progress in incremental steps", said Joseph Bermudez from 38 North, a Washington-based North Korea monitoring project.

The United States has demanded tougher worldwide sanctions in response to the latest missile tests, including cuts in oil shipments to the isolated state. Throughout the training about 12,000 personnel will demonstrate wartime defenses and airstrikes on mock North Korean nuclear and missile targets. "Not to contain it". Every missile test, every underground test of a nuclear weapon, means the marriage is more likely.

"What matters is the fact that the drill simulating an actual war is to be staged at a time when insane President Trump is running wild", a commentary carried by the official Korean Central News Agency said.

"Despite persistent sanctions and pressure by the U.S. and other hostile forces, my government concentrates all its efforts on improving people's livelihood and providing them with a better future", the North Korean Permanent Mission to the United Nations said in a statement on 14 November. "The Chinese are trying, but ineffectively", he said.

Kim Jong-Un's regime conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test at the site on 3 September, damaging geological structures in the area, the agency said. The exercises come after the North fired an intercontinental ballistic missile last Wednesday.

But analysts remain unconvinced that it has mastered the advanced technology to allow the rocket to survive re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere.
