Air Force B-52s continue to take part in military drills that the U.S. and South Korea conduct, contrary to a South Korean news report, a Pentagon spokesman said.

"The scope of Max Thunder has not changed," Lt. Col. Chris Logan, Pentagon spokesman, said Wednesday, the Washington Examiner reported.

Max Thunder is one of the two spring exercises being conducted on the Korean Peninsula; the other is called Foal Eagle, the report said.

A report from South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency posted Wednesday said that the nuclear-capable bombers would not participate in the air drills between the U.S. and South Korea.

North Korea’s Central News Agency critiqued the drills, saying they were a rehearsal for invasion, the Yonhap report said.

The purpose of the drills is to “enhance interoperability and readiness,” Pentagon spokesman Col. Rob Manning said, the Examiner reported.
