The strategic bombers, escorted by USA and South Korean fighter jets, flew from the Anderson Air Force Base in Guam, to conduct a "surprise" strike drill, the KCNA said.

Two B-1B bombers flew near the Korean peninsula on Thursday as part of a previously scheduled operation, the U.S. Air Force confirmed. The bombers were accompanied by Japanese and South Korean fighter jets.

"The gangster-like United States imperialists are ceaselessly resorting to their frantic nuclear threat and blackmail to stifle the DPRK with nukes at any cost", a post from KCNA said.

The U.S. Navy is conducting joint drills with South Korea navy in a show of sea and air power created to warn off North Korea from any military action.

However, North Korea is claiming that the USA military drill was a "surprise attack exercise" and that the American bombers were simulating strikes on "key targets", according to North Korea's KCNA news agency.

The Air Force, in tangent with Japan Air Self-Defense Force fighters and the Republic of Korea Air Force, conducted a planned, bilateral mission in the area, according to a statement from the Pacific Air Force.

Last weekend, the US Air Force sent one of its B-2 stealth bombers on a mission to the Pacific, according to a statement from US Strategic Command.

North Korea and the nuclear ambitions of its leader Kim Jong-Un will dominate US President Donald Trump's visit to Asia.

Last week, two more USA aircraft carriers joined the Japan-based USS Ronald Reagan in the Asia-Pacific region.
