TOKYO (Sputnik) — The bombers will be equipped with bunker buster bombs, the South Korean Yonhap News Agency said, citing sources. The submarine will arrive from the Japan’s Yokosuka naval base, where it is currently stationed, according to the sources.

Earlier on Monday, South Korea’s Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok announced that the two countries were discussing the timing of the US strategic military asset deployments on the Korean peninsula.

Last week, North Korea fired shells at a South Korean military base across the demilitarized zone in attempt to stop propaganda broadcasting from loudspeakers. Seoul responded with dozens of heavy artillery rounds.

On Saturday, the conflicting neighboring countries began the first round of high-level talks to reduce escalated tensions.

South and North Korea are still formally at war, as no peace treaty was ever signed after the Korean War of 1950-1953.
