  • Japan's Abe, UK May pledge cooperation on North Korea threat

Two B-1Bs from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam; four F-35Bs from the Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni, Japan; two Japanese F-15s; and four South Korean F-15Ks executed the mission. North Korea condemns the annual U.S.

Joseph Dunford is the top general of the US military.

"North Korea's actions are a threat to our allies, partners and homeland, and their destabilising actions will be met accordingly", said General Terrence O'Shaughnessy, Pacific Air Forces Commander, who made an unscheduled visit to Japan.

On Monday, North Korea, which sees the exercises as preparations for invasion, raised the stakes in its stand-off with the United States and its allies by firing an intermediate-range missile over Japan.

The Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, the 11-day joint military exercises the United States and South Korea completed Thursday, involved tens of thousands of USA and South Korean troops, although the exercises were conducted largely through computer simulations.

The Jets have been trying to trade Richardson, a 2014 Pro Bowl selection, for a while and almost did so at the draft this year. The team already had Pro Bowlers Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril , along with talented 2015 second-round pick Frank Clark.

"We see a North Korea whose objective is to have missiles capable of transporting a nuclear weapon tomorrow", Le Drian told RTL radio.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders reiterated at a regular briefing on Thursday that all options - diplomatic, economic and military - remained on the table.

Seoul's joint chiefs of staff said the missile travelled around 1,677 miles and reached a maximum height of 341 miles as it flew over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters that his government was "aware of the movement of the missile immediately after the launch and had everything in order to protect the lives of our people".

North Korea has made it clear that it sees its weapons program, which demands regular testing to flawless, as the only way to contest decades of USA hostility, by which it means the huge US military presence in South Korea, Japan and the Pacific.

The UN Security Council has already imposed seven sets of sanctions on Pyongyang, the most recent of which were passed earlier this month, but the measures have done little to quell Kim Jong-un's nuclear missile ambitions. But the USA -drafted statement did not threaten new sanctions.

Seoul says the missile was launched from Sunan, which is where Pyongyang's worldwide airport is, opening the possibility that North Korea launched a road-mobile missile from an airport runway.

Independently of the joint exercises with South Korea, the U.S. Missile Defense Agency successfully shot down a ballistic missile that was test-fired early Wednesday morning from Kauai.

"The situation is extremely serious". It reiterated the importance of maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in Northeast Asia at large.
