N. Korea says Trump `begging' for nuclear war with drills

A US Air Force U-2s spy plane lands at the Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek South Korea

United Nations Security Council ministers will meet on December 15 to discuss North Korea's nuclear and missiles programs and the body will also meet separately this month to discuss human rights abuses in the North Asian country, an annual meeting that its ally China has tried to prevent for the past three years. Threats traded by Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have further stoked fears of war.

President Donald Trump and his administration are "begging for nuclear war", North Korea's Foreign Ministry said Saturday. About 12,000 USA military personnel and 230 planes are expected to participate in the drill, known as Vigilant Ace. "More than 10 F-15Cs and F-16s have also been deployed for the drill".

The missile is said to have flown almost 2,800 miles high and for a distance of more than 600 miles.

But it is the stealth fighters that experts say pose the biggest threat to Pyongyang.

"It's insane to send spouses and children to South Korea given the provocation of North Korea", Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

The Rodong Sinmun commentary said the aerial wargames show "the enemies' moves to start a nuclear war have reached a risky stage".

"It is an open, all-out provocation against the DPRK, which may lead to a nuclear war any moment", it said in an editorial on Sunday, using the North's official name.

South Africa triumph in opening World Rugby Sevens Series event in Dubai
The New Zealand women's sevens team have been handed a stunning loss to U.S. in the quarter-finals of the Dubai Sevens . Earlier, South Africa faced their sternest test of the tournament against 2015 Dubai winners Fiji in the semi-final.

But it also put up bravado over the presence of the F-22s and F-35s. The isolated state claimed the intercontinental ballistic missile was its "most powerful" yet, capable of hitting anywhere in the United States with a nuclear warhead.

A United States official said Saturday technical analysis of that missile's flight is ongoing but the "the North Koreans had problems with re-entry".

"The situation clearly proves that the U.S. and the South Korean puppet war maniacs are just aggressors and provocateurs breaking peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula".

On Tuesday, North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile which flew for approximately 50 minutes, soared 2,800 miles into space and achieved the highest altitude and longest flight duration of any North Korean trial launch to date.

China should take unilateral action to cut off North Korean oil imports, McMaster said, adding, "you can't shoot a missile without fuel".

"However, the quake could have been caused by geological changes created from the recent nuclear explosion", said an agency official who asked not to be named.
