Seoul : North Korea claimed on Saturday that the US is putting the peninsula in danger of another war by continuing “madcap” military drills in the region. The Korean Central News Agency reported that B-1B Lancer strategic bombers made a series of flights over Korea in March.
The B-1Bs from Guam conducted bombing drills in South Korea’s airspace on five sorties in preparation for a surprise attack on the North’s major targets, the communist nation’s state news agency added.
The US Forces Korea (USFK) made public a joint exercise involving one B-1B bomber and South Korea’s fighter jets, reported Yonhap news agency. A South Korean defence source said it’s true that the US flew B-1Bs over Korea five times in the past two weeks.–PTI
