The United States has deployed a strategic B-52 bomber for a low altitude demonstrative flight over South Korea to demonstrate the alliance’s might and determination following North Korea’s latest provocative underground nuclear test.

“The flight today demonstrates the strength and capabilities of the alliance,” said the head of US military deployment in in South Korea, Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, reported Reuters.

The US has demonstrated its “ironclad commitment” to regional allies such as South Korea and Japan, and its readiness to defend “the American homeland,” Admiral Harry Harris of the US Pacific Command wrote on Twitter.
