Pyongyang reacts to US bombers in Korean skies
"The US, with its dangerous military provocation, is pushing the risk of a nuclear war on the peninsula to a tipping point,” wrote North Korea’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper in an editorial. “The US saying it will regularly deploy strategic bombers to the Korean Peninsula is the same as a crazy act of playing fire on top of an ammunitions locker. A small misjudgement or error can immediately lead to the beginning of a nuclear war, which will inevitably lead to another world war,” the paper added. Meanwhile, South Korean President Moon Jae-In tries to keep the door open to dialogue.
