Arrival of B-52 seeks to ‘reassure’ South Koreans about joint deterrence against DPRK threats, expert says

A nuclear-capable U.S. bomber will land in South Korea this week, a move one expert viewed as an attempt to reassure South Koreans of the allies’ joint deterrence capabilities in the event of a crisis involving North Korea.
