Two Air Force B-1B bombers from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and four Marine Corps F-35B fighters from Iwakuni, Japan, combined with four South Korean F-15K fighters and four F-2 Japanese fighters, US defense officials said.

Four US F-35B stealth fighter jets and two B-1B supersonic bombers took part in the joint drills on Monday.

Washington has repeatedly urged Beijing to do more direct actions to rein in Pyongyang, while China - North Korea's main ally - says the U.S. should refrainshould refrain from issuing more threats.

It also said that the goal of the new United Nations sanctions, approved on 11 September, was to "physically exterminate" the country's people, system and government.

China and Russian Federation began naval drills near North Korea on Monday amid continuing tensions over the isolated state's nuclear ambitions and ahead of a United Nations General Assembly meeting this week, where North Korea is likely to loom large.

Rohingya issue: Centre set to file affidavit in Supreme Court
The central government on Thursday in their "unfinalised affidavit" had said that Rohingyas pose a security threat to the country.

On Monday, the UN Security Council slapped North Korea with stiffer sanctions on top of previous ones that hit the country's exports of iron ore, coal, and seafood.

The relocation came after a North Korean missile was test-fired last week and flew over southern Hokkaido and landed in the Pacific off the island's east coast - the second flyover in less than a month.

It is just one of several that major world powers are engaged in on, over and near the Korean peninsula, amid heightened tension in the wake of North Korea's increasingly frequent missile tests and its sixth nuclear test this month.

South Korea and Japan also have the ability to defend against the North's growing arsenal.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says the US has not attempted to shoot down any of North Korea's missiles - including two that have recently overflown Japan - because they have not posed a direct threat.

But analysts pointed out that an attempt to use the systems against a North Korean missile test in the absence of a real threat would be risky and expensive.

Moon also pointed to the South Korea-U.S. bilateral trade agreement, saying that it's only natural to have different views on the treaty.
