A U-2S high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft has been deployed by the U.S. Air Force to monitor potential military movements by the North. The visiting ministers' itinerary will continue until Friday, when they are expected to meet with the South Korean foreign and defense ministers to further discuss a range of issues concerning bilateral cooperation and regional security.

"This drill was part of a routine deployment training aimed at enhancing deterrence" against the North's nuclear threats, the JCS said in a statement.

Recently North Korea has instigated two missiles over Japan and carried out its sixth nuclear test, as it progresses speedily towards its aim of expanding a nuclear-tipped missile competent of devastating the US Mainland.

The B-1Bs also conducted exercises with Japan's Air Force in what the United States statement called a "sequenced bilateral mission".

In recent weeks, North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test, all in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, and may be fast advancing toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the US mainland.

Its actions were in defiance of multiple sets of United Nations sanctions, prompting US President Donald Trump to threaten military action against the regime.

The exercises came as a US nuclear-powered fast-attack submarine, the USS Tuscon, made a call in South Korea's southern port of Jinhae, the US Pacific Command said.

The poll found that 65 percent of Americans think Trump's comments have made the situation between the US and North Korea worse, including 45 percent who think he's made the situation much worse.

Last week, he dismissed the idea of talks as a waste of time, a day after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Washington was maintaining open lines of communication with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's government.

He added that North Korea would not rule out "the use of the most extreme measures in response".

"Neither country has a nuclear weapon".
