North Korea is also facing strong sanctions from the US and firm condemnation from the global community in the wake of repeated missile launches and nuclear tests.

South Korean companies that invested in a now-shuttered joint industrial park in North Korea asked the Seoul government Thursday to allow them to visit the complex to check their factories, officials said.

South Korea said Tuesday it was maintaining full military readiness following intense speculation of a possible ballistic missile test by the North as it marks a key anniversary.

The Air Force said Tuesday's overflight demonstrated how USA military forces "are always ready to defend the American homeland and how the US stands resolutely with Japan and [South Korea] to honor their unshakeable alliance commitments to safeguard security and stability".

A spokesman for the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said its military was closely monitoring the movements of the North Korean army and maintaining full readiness.

"The briefing and discussion focused on a range of options to respond to any form of North Korean aggression or, if necessary to prevent North Korea from threatening the United States and its allies with nuclear weapons", it said without elaborating.
