North Korea Claims Inevitability of War 'Established Fact' as China Urges Calm

"The ones that will suffer the most are ordinary people", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said at the weekend that the possibility of war with North Korea was "increasing every day".

The unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman said: 'The large-scale nuclear war exercises conducted by the USA in succession are creating touch-and-go situation on the Korean peninsula and series of violent war remarks coming from the USA high-level politicians amid such circumstances have made an outbreak of war on the Korean peninsula an established fact.

But North Korea has a problem there.

China, North Korea's neighbour and lone major ally, has again urged calm and says war is not the answer as Pyongyang said military drills involving the US and South Korean forces made war "an established fact".

North Korea has long spoken out against joint drills between the USA and South Korea.

Moscow also believes it is Washington's saber-rattling and regular military drills in the region that are "provoking Pyongyang into taking some rash action" after months of restraint, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said following the country's latest ballistic missile test. Threats from various United States officials are serving the same objective, Lavrov added.

North Korea issued threats in advance of a planned aerial drill on December 4 involving USA and South Korean forces in the region, but America and its ally have responded by going right on ahead with it.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov offered to help facilitate U.S.

Kim with North Korean troops.

Yang Uk, a senior fellow at the Korea Defence and Security Forum, said B-1Bs would be key to any strike targeting major North Korean facilities.

B-1 flights represent the US's go-to response for North Korean provocations like missile tests, and the bomber flights always draw a strong, sometimes dangerously escalating response from Pyongyang.

Both sides insist they don't want war, while saying they will act to defend themselves.

The weekend saw both White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster and U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of SC say chances of war with Pyongyang were growing.

Meanwhile China, North Korea's neighbour and lone major ally, again urged calm and said war was not the answer.

The number of jets in the air between the USA and South Korea is 230.

That was "the remaining question" the regime had after the United States and South Korea conducted a joint military exercise on the peninsula. Some analysts and diplomats hope his visit could spark a UN-led effort to defuse tensions. Feltman held talks with deputy foreign minister Pak Myong Gun on Wednesday.
