US Spy Planes Watching for Possible North Korea Nuke Test

Malita Javier | 22 Abril, 2017, 20:02

Chinese air force land-attack, cruise-missile-capable bombers were put "on high alert" on Wednesday as the United States sees evidence that the Chinese military is preparing to respond to a potential situation in North Korea, a United States defense official tells CNN.

Given the close economic links between North Korea and China, US military officials have said that Beijing is critical to solving the North Korean situation, with President Donald Trump recently commending Chinese President Xi Jinping for Chinese efforts to curb Pyongyang's activities.

A North Korean missile blew up nearly immediately on its test launch on Sunday, the USA military said.

North Korea reacted angrily to the resolution, calling the statement "impudent words" and pointed fingers at the United States as the main aggressor in the region.

Washington has not ruled out a military strike to disable the North Korean programme, but U.S. officials are for now focused on working with China to bring diplomatic pressure to bear. "I think at the end of the day we realized North Korea is a problem and no one on the council wants to see North Korea move forward with any sort of testing or strikes. and if we have to start looking at sanctions or other actions we will". "This represents a general direction that we believe is correct and should be adhered to", Lu said.

The rhetoric from both the USA and the North Korean side has been more belligerent of late. There were no reports in Chinese media about a more intensive military reaction.

In Russia, a Kremlin spokesman declined to comment on media reports that Russia was moving military hardware and troops towards the border with North Korea, the RIA news agency quoted him as saying.

It is rare for council members to wrangle over standard language and the dispute came amid US and Russian tensions over Moscow's support for President Bashar al-Assad in Syria's civil war.

North Korea has a message for Donald Trump.

"Beijing has demonstrated due enthusiasm for Washington's newfound interest in a diplomatic solution and willingness to work more closely with it", the state-run China Daily said in an editorial.

Tensions have risen sharply in recent months after North Korea conducted two nuclear weapons tests previous year and carried out a steady stream of ballistic missile tests.

"The United States of America will always seek peace, but under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready", Pence told 2,500 sailors at the U.S. Yokosuka naval base in Tokyo Bay. Moscow said military movements seen by residents there were part of pre-planned exercises.

"Without crossing the red line such as a nuclear test or a test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, until the April 25 anniversary of the Korean People's Army, North Korea is expected to continue to launch mid-range missiles", said Cheong Seong-chang, a senior research fellow at Sejong Institute outside Seoul.

Vice President Mike Pence, who is on a four-nation tour in Asia this week, also offered a warning, citing recent US military actions in Syria and Afghanistan, CNBC reports.

The joint U.S. -South Korea military exercises are due to finish at the end of April. It blew up nearly immediately.

South Korea's acting president, Hwang Kyo-ahn, at a meeting with top officials on Thursday, repeatedly called for the military and security ministries to maintain vigilance.
