Massive Us-South Korean naval war games begin near Korean peninsula


The US and South Korean navies have kicked off a five-day round of military drills, the type of exercise that North Korea has previously responded with ballistic missile tests, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

Guided-missile destroyers USS Stetham and USS Mustin and supercarrier USS Ronald Reagan will join several South Korean ships as part of the Maritime Counter Special Operations Exercise (MCSOFEX), the commander of the US Navy’s Seventh fleet said. MCSOFEX is slated to last from Monday through Friday this week in both the Yellow Sea and Sea of Japan, Yonhap reports.

 

A scheme to eliminate nuclear facilities belonging to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) with tactical nukes “is under consideration when the US is going to stage a high-intensity joint drill” in the waters surrounding the Korean Peninsula “with the mobilization involving nuclear carrier [USS] Ronald Reagan, Aegis destroyer, missile cruiser and Ohio-class strategic nuclear submarine carrying nuclear missiles,”  according to a October 17 KCNA report.
