North Korea has issued a warning that it will retaliate with overwhelming force if the US military attempts to interfere with its missile test launches by intercepting the missiles. 
This warning came soon after the US and South Korea conducted a joint air drill, which included at least one nuclear-capable bomber. 

Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, responded to a recent press report that suggested the US military would intercept any long-range missile fired into the Pacific by North Korea. She stated that if the US military takes any military action, such as interception, following a North Korean strategic weapons test, it would be considered a clear declaration of war. Kim Yo-jong's comments were reported by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

North Korea has warned that it is prepared to take swift and overwhelming action against any military movements by the US and South Korea, and will closely monitor their activities. 
This statement followed joint air drills by the US and South Korea on Monday, which included at least one nuclear-capable B-52H strategic bomber. 

Similar exercises have taken place, and another one is planned next week to simulate a response to a possible North Korean missile attack. Despite objections from Pyongyang, the US and South Korea proceeded with these exercises, which North Korea has denounced as preparation for an attack. 

North Korea appealed to the United Nations to stop the drills and accused Washington and Seoul of irresponsibly raising the level of confrontation in the region, but there has been no condemnation from the UN.
