After North Korea launched its Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile on Saturday, the U.S. military deployed B-1B long-range supersonic bombers as part of a joint military exercise with South Korea and Japan on Sunday.

“The frequency of using the Pacific as its own training ground depends on the nature of the operations of US forces,” Kim Yo Jong said in a statement released by North Korea’s state media.
