North Korea lambasts US-South joint military drill

Also included are basic survival tools and some more specialist gear such as gas masks and hoods to protect against acid rain

Trump has said he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping about Pyongyang's "provocative actions", and he vowed that additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea.

About 12,000 USA personnel and 230 aircraft will take part in the drill.

North Korea on Wednesday fired a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) which Seoul says is capable of flying 13,000 kilometers, declaring that it has completed the "state nuclear force".

The five-day Vigilant Ace drill - involving some 230 aircraft including F-22 Raptor stealth jet fighters - begins on Monday, five days after the North test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile believed capable of hitting the U.S. mainland in a fresh challenge to President Donald Trump.

North Korea said the new missile soared to an altitude of about 4,475 km (2,780 miles), more than 10 times the height of the International Space Station, and flew 950 km during its 53-minute flight - higher and longer than any North Korean missile, before landing in the sea near Japan.

The comments came as White House National Security Adviser HR McMaster warned of the "increasing" possibility of war with the impoverished but nuclear-armed North.

With every missile launch or nuclear test, Kim has improved his country's capabilities, McMaster said.

North Korea said the United States is "begging" for a nuclear war by planning the "largest-ever" joint aerial drill with South Korea just after concluding an exercise with nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. It has been set up under the South Korean army's Special Warfare Command. The larger size of the first and second stages allows the missile to fly a greater distance with a larger payload.

Cloaked with the world's most advanced stealth coating, the F-22s and F-35s would likely be called upon to lead a potential air campaign against North Korea should the situation escalate to the point of using military force, experts say.

The isolationist state recently tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile that, it claimed, could reach anywhere on the USA mainland. "We're asking China to act in China's interest, as they should, and we believe increasingly that it's in China's urgent interest to do more".

He pushed China to do more, including cutting off North Korean oil imports.

Technical analysis of the missile flight is ongoing, but the USA official said "the North Koreans had problems with re-entry".
