N. Korea calls USA bomber flyover of the South a bluff

General Vincent Brooks of US Forces Korea and General Lee Sun Jin of South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said during a joint press conference that they will continue to prepare themselves against North Korea's "continued aggressive behaviour".

The flight by the B-1B bombers demonstrated the United States' commitment to providing "extended deterrence", including the threat of using nuclear weapons, to protect the South, said Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, the top USA military commander in the country.

The US bombers and Japanese F-2 jets flew in formations and practiced combating.

It has, however, blamed the USA for escalating tensions in the region.

Following a meeting with his South Korean counterpart, Kim said that it was up to North Korea to start any diplomatic conversations with the USA - the six party talks stalled in 2008 when North Korea walked away from table. It said Washington was "bluffing" that these bombers were sufficient for fighting an all-out nuclear war against Pyongyang.

"While we saw this work in Iran, over time countries can adjust to sanctions", he said.

On Friday, North Korea confirmed it had conducted a successful "nuclear warhead explosion", its fifth nuclear test so far and its second in the current year.

The supersonic bombers left US Andersen Air Force Base on Guam on Tuesday morning and arrived over the skies above the Osan Air Base at 1000 h local time, Yonhap news agency quoted a USFK commander as saying.

Henderson thrilled as hot Reds inflict the first defeat on Conte
Dejan Lovren's opener and a brilliant Jordan Henderson strike from range gave the visitors a two-goal lead before half-time. We've had a great week in training so everyone was positive.

Days before the nuclear test, North Korea launched what were believed to be three mid-range Rodong missiles into the Sea of Japan as China was hosting the Group of 20 summit in Hangzhou.

He said the U.S. would work with China, North Korea's major diplomatically, to close loopholes in existing resolutions, which were tightened with China's backing in March.

Two of the powerful United States bombers, joined by US and South Korean fighter jets, flew over Osan Air Base south of Seoul on Tuesday to show USA anger with North Korea's nuclear weapons test four days earlier. Protracted debates over strengthening United Nations-backed sanctions also raise questions over containing Pyongyang in the short run.

On Tuesday, Pyongyang's KCNA news agency also described the downpour in the country's northern regions as "unprecedented in meteorological observation since the liberation of Korea", while reporting the collapse of thousands of homes and public buildings and the destruction of cultivated land.

US flyovers are not uncommon after North Korean tests.

Japan's Lower House and Upper House of the National Diet have passed resolutions earlier to condemn North Korea, following its previous four nuclear tests.

Also on Tuesday, South Korean President Park Geun-hye ordered her military to be ready to "finish off" North Korea if it fires a nuclear missile toward South Korea.
