WASHINGTON (ALBOENEWS) — U.S. bombers with an F-15 escort are reported to have flown just east of North Korea on Saturday, according to Idrees Ali, a Reuters Pentagon correspondent.
The flight appears to be a show of force by the United States. This is the furthest north of the DMZ that any U.S. bomber or jet has flown in the 21st century.
The Pentagon has confirmed the show of force. They say this was a demonstration of U.S. resolve and a clear message that the President has many military options to defeat any threat.
The Foreign Minister of North Korea will be speaking shortly at the UN. Watch live here:
