As the threat of provocation by North Korea, which is now less than 20 days old, hit by the end of the negotiations, US military patrols have recently increased over our country. Yesterday (11th), it flew toward Japan to the B-52 bomber, and North Korea's recent movements seem to be not that unusual.

I'm Choi Jae-young.


US military patrol planes, which had been in service for 2-3 days until last week, fly over the Korean Peninsula every day this week.

Following the rivet joint and joint stars on the 9th, yesterday, even the advanced hawk reconnaissance Global Hawk was put into the Korean Peninsula.

Our airborne early warning controller, Piseye, also joined the reconnaissance line.

It seems that North Korea's movements after completing the Dongchang-ri Company examination in anticipation of the Christmas gift are not serious.

In particular, the B-52 bomber, backed by an air tanker, appeared to fly from Guam to near Japan.

All have been captured on civil aviation tracking sites, which seems intended to pressure North Korea through intentional exposure.

The United States has scouted reconnaissance planes and bombers around the Korean peninsula, strengthening its readiness, and urging North Korea to refrain from provocations.

Pompeio says he is thinking about ways to talk and negotiate, but it seems unclear at the moment if it can stop North Korea from moving.
