USA and South Korean troops launched a 10-day joint military exercise yesterday, despite warnings from North Korea calling the drills a "reckless" move that could spur the "uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war".

"In the event of a missile launch towards the territory of Japan, Guam, United States, Korea, we would take immediate, specific actions to take it down", Mattis said.

"The U.S.is trying to calm the waters without reducing the operational training that is necessary", said Mark Fitzpatrick, executive director of the International Institute for Strategic Studies' Americas office.

Commenting on the upcoming drills, the North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun reported that the drills would contribute to escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

US Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford told reporters during a visit to Beijing there would no scaling back of planned military exercises despite the recent tensions with North Korea. Last year, Pyongyang test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile and carried out its largest nuclear test to date.

The joint U.S. -South Korean drills will continue to August 31 and involve computer simulations created to prepare for war with a nuclear-capable North Korea.

US President Donald Trump assured South Korea he would consult with them before making any military decisions on North Korea, according to Moon.

South Koreans opposed to the joint U.S. "North Korea should not use this as a pretext for provocation".

In response, Turnbull issued a statement saying North Korea had shown no regard for the welfare of its people and no regard for global law.

It warned the exercises would be like pouring gasoline on fire and worsen the state of the peninsula and added: If the United States is lost in a fantasy that war on the peninsula is at somebody else's doorstep far away from them across the Pacific, it is far more mistaken than ever.

Moon, who took office in May, announced on his 100th day in office that United States and South Korean policies are aligned on North Korea.

"President Moon said he understands why the United States has traditionally said all options were on the table to push North Korea to give up its nuclear ambitions".

The war games, which last 11 days, involve 17,500 USA service members, including about 3,000 from outside the peninsula, and 50,000 South Korean troops.

Moon also stressed the importance of China's role in bringing the North back to the dialogue table, noting Pyongyang almost entirely depended on its major ally, Beijing, for its exports.
