Due to the rising tension in the Korean peninsula the United States will deploy military assets in South Korea.

According to South Korean Yonhap News Agency, The US will provide B-52 strategic bombers which are equipped with bunker buster bombs.

Sources say that the Japan’s Yokosuka naval base is set for the arrival of the said military equipment loaded in a US submarine.

On Monday, the two countries were discussing the timing of the US strategic military asset deployments on the Korean peninsula.  Kim Min-seok  a spokesperson of South Korea’s Defense Ministry said.

Last week, South Korea retaliated through dozens of heavy artillery rounds after North Korea fired shells at a South Korean military base across the demilitarized zone in an attempt to stop propaganda broadcasting from loudspeakers.

To reduce escalated tensions, the conflicting neighboring countries on Saturday began the first round of high-level talks.

After the Korean war of 1950-1953 there is no peace treaty ever signed. Therefore Seoul and Pyongyang are still formally at war
