Two B-1B Lancer strategic bombers on Thursday conducted drills on the western coast of the Korean peninsula, a South Korean military officer confirmed to NK News.

U.S. B-1B Lancer bombers and advanced stealth fighter jets conducted joint bombing drills in South Korea on Wednesday, as a part of ongoing air drills this week with South Korea.

The Vigilant Ace exercise, which was scheduled before the missile launch, involves 230 aircraft and about 12,000 service members from the USA and South Korea.

According to him, the exercise was also attended by the South Korean air force F-15Ks and KF-16s.

The supersonic jet departed from its base in the USA territory of Guam before joining two Japanese F-15 fighters and then took part in military drills on the Korean Peninsula along with Americans and South Korean fighter jets, Bloomberg reported.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday expressed concerns over the continued deployment of USA strategic assets.

An article in North Korea's ruling party's mouthpiece Rodong Sinmun on Tuesday accused the USA of trying to provoke a second Korean war and planning a pre-emptive strike.

"We hope all relevant parties can maintain calm and restraint and take steps to alleviate tensions and not provoke each other", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

North Korea hates such displays of American military might at close range and typically uses strong language to condemn them as invasion rehearsals.

A spokesman for the ruling party-linked Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) on Sunday warned of "terrible retaliation" in response to the drills.

China, North Korea's neighbour and lone major ally, has again urged calm and says war is not the answer as Pyongyang said military drills involving the US and South Korean forces made war "an established fact".

He said: "We do not wish for a war but shall not hide from it".

United States national security adviser H.R. McMaster said at the weekend the possibility of war was "increasing every day".

North Korea said that further escalation through joint drills "will only invite more bad retaliation and precipitate their self-destruction".

The North Korean spokesperson described the remark as an "alarming sign", given the statements were made amid the "largest-ever joint aerial drill". "The outbreak of war is not in any side's interest". "The remaining question now is: when will the war break out?" it said in a statement.
