MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – November 19, 2022) Japan and the United States have conducted joint military drills near the northwest of Kyushu island, deploying fighter jets and strategic bombers after North Korea’s recent test are gone, the Japanese Joint Staff said on Saturday …

“The Japan Self-Defense Forces and the US Armed Forces held a bilateral exercise on Friday, November 19, amid the grim security environment surrounding Japan following the launch of an ICBM-class ballistic missile from North Korea that landed in the sea within the Japanese Exclusive Economic Zone Japan,” the statement read.

The military exercise involved five Japanese Mitsubishi F-2 fighter aircraft, the 8th Air Wing Tactical Fighter Squadron, two US Rockwell B-1 Lancer heavy bombers and the 28th Bomb Wing Air Force unit.

On Friday, North Korea launched what was previously identified as a Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the US mainland.

The South Korean military reported that the missile flew approximately 1,000 km (621 mi) and reached an altitude of 6,100 km at a maximum speed of Mach 22, which is 22 times the speed of sound. According to Japanese officials, the missile fell about 200 kilometers west of Hokkaido’s Oshima island, within Japan’s exclusive economic zone.

The new launch came a day after North Korea fired a short-range ballistic missile toward the Sea of ​​Japan and warned the US and its allies that Pyongyang would respond proportionately to Washington’s extended deterrence.

North Korea has launched dozens of missile tests since the beginning of 2022, on some occasions multiple missiles at once. On 2 November, Pyongyang launched more than 20 short-range missiles. North Korea said its military-related activities came in response to provocations by South Korea, the United States and Japan.
