China urges calm as N.Korea rattles sabres

China urges calm as N.Korea rattles sabres

People in a Chinese province bordering North Korea have been offered a nuclear survival guide by the local state-run newspaper.

North Korea threatened Sunday that if the United States continues to conduct joint military operations with South Korea "nuclear war [may break out] at any moment", Sky News reported.

The article - reminiscent of USA public service announcements made at the height of the Cold War - comes in the week that the US and South Korea take part in their largest ever join military drill, which has been declared by Kim Jong Un's rogue state as an "open, all-out provocation" that could push the Korean Peninsula to the "brink of war".

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

But North Korea has a problem there.

Quoting an unnamed spokesman from the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (CPRC and DPRK, respectively), KCNA referred to the US and South Korean military might as "puppet forces" and warned that a planned December 4. aerial drill is a "war rehearsal [that] is just a grave military provocation".

However, US stealth jets did not join Thursday's practice, said the official, who asked not to be named.

Our first look at the video of the fighter jets in formation shows F-22 fighter flying during aerial combat exercises. Additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea today.

Both sides insist they don't want war, while saying they will act to defend themselves. He said Trump was prepared to take action against North Korea but was working to convince China, Russia and others to do more to press Pyongyang to get it to give up its weapons programs.

Li Jie, a Chinese military expert based in Beijing, said the announcement was targeting the United States and South Korea. The Pentagon said it has "no intent" to move out any dependants.

North Korea regularly threatens to destroy South Korea and the United States and says its weapons programmes are necessary to counter U.S. aggression. More than 28,000 United States troops are stationed there, many living with their families. Some analysts and diplomats hope his visit could spark a UN-led effort to defuse tensions.

"The remaining question now is: when will the war break out?" it said in a statement carried by North Korea's official KCNA news agency.
