North Korea called the US bomber maneuvers in South Korea a provocation to a nuclear war. This is reported by Reuters with reference to the Central Telegraph Agency of North Korea.
"Reckless military provocation is bringing the situation on the Korean peninsula closer to the brink of nuclear war," the message says.
As the North Korean agency wrote, US bombers conducted exercises on "bombing the most important North Korean facilities" while US President Donald Trump and other American war instigators call for a preemptive strike against North Korea.
It is worth noting that two strategic American bombers B-1B Lancer previously conducted exercises on the peninsula. Then the representative of the Ministry of Defense of South Korea, Mun San-Gyun, said at a briefing in Seoul that the purpose of joint exercises was to prevent provocations from Pyongyang and to test readiness in the case of new nuclear tests in the DPRK.
We recall, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK declared their readiness to conduct regular nuclear tests at any time.
