US bombers drill over Korean peninsula

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Tuesday's launch of a missile over Japan was a

This prompted the Japanese government to warn its citizens to take cover.

Officials say the USS John Paul Jones detected and tracked a medium-range ballistic missile that was launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility.

China condemned "destructive" calls for new sanctions on North Korea, warning Japan, the United States and Britain that diplomacy was needed to avert crisis days after nuclear-armed Pyongyang fired a missile over Japan.

The launch sparked global outrage reported it prompted an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council. The missile test rattled a region increasingly concerned about North Korea's fast-advancing missile capabilities and its increasingly bold way of demonstrating them.

"The world has received North Korea's latest message loud and clear".

"We continue to work together, and the minister and I share responsibility to provide for the protection of our nation, our populations and our interests, which is what we are here to discuss today", Mattis said.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders reiterated at a regular briefing on Thursday that all options - diplomatic, economic and military - remained on the table.

Shapovalov knocked out of US Open

"We have a common goal - denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, so that neither the North nor the South, the USA and us [Russia] have nuclear weapons", Lavrov said. -South Korea military exercises focused mainly on computer simulations. Its leader, Kim Jong Un, said on Wednesday that the test could be a "curtain raiser" for more such tests in the Pacific.

The council further demanded North Korea not conduct any future nuclear tests or any further provocation and abandon any other existing weapons of mass destruction.

Key elements would require some form of non-aggression agreement involving North Korea, South Korea, the USA and Japan, along with trade and economic assistance to North Korea. The sanctions cut $1 billion of North Korean exports, slashing the country's annual revenue by one third, reported NPR.

"The reckless act of firing a missile over our nation is an unprecedented, grave and critical threat and it is an act that significantly diminishes the region's peace and security, and we have lodged a firm protest".

Preliminary reports said North Korea had launched three missiles in the most recent round.

According to the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the missiles used in the July tests by North Korea were the Hwasong-14, which has a range of over 10,000 kilometres.

North Korea has made it clear that it sees its weapons program, which demands regular testing to flawless, as the only way to contest decades of USA hostility, by which it means the huge US military presence in South Korea, Japan and the Pacific.
