    The United States will use its nuclear-capable bombers, sent earlier to the US Pacific island territory of Guam for the upcoming military drills with South Korea, under its scenario to launch a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea, the Pyongyang's Korean Central News Agency reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, the US Strategic Command announced that the United States had sent three B-2 stealth bombers to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to conduct training sorties.

    According to the Pyongyang's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), it is necessary to pay attention to the massive deployment of nuclear war hardware by the United States ahead of the Ulji Freedom Guardian military drills conducted annually during August or September between South Korea and the United States.

    Under the upcoming drills, the United States intends to make a plan of actions for a surprise nuclear attack, the news agency reported Wednesday.

    Pyongyang has repeatedly claimed that the joint military drills are a rehearsal for a real attack on North Korea. The United States and South Korea, in their turn, insisted that the exercises are aimed at training defensive skills for combating emerging threat from the North.
