pravdareport.com reported – The United States plans to send three aircraft carriers to the shores of South Korea, news agencies report.
The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Carl Vinson will enter the Sea of Japan on April 25. Aircraft carriers Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) and Nimitz (CVN 68) will also stay in the Sea of Japan.
It was also said that Pyongyang was going to conduct a regular missile test on April 25 to mark the 85th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army.
Noteworthy, South Korean President Park Geun-hye was removed from power, and it remains unclear how the USA intends to deploy the THAAD missile defence system in South Korea.
The THAAD missile defense system has already arrived there in South Korea.
In the beginning of the year, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said that his country was about to finish the work on the intercontinental ballistic missile. In March of this year, it was said that North Korea launched four missiles to test possible attacks on US military bases in Japan.
Pence and South Korean acting president Hwang Kyo Ahn, speaking a day after a failed missile test by the North and two days after a huge display of missiles in Pyongyang, also said they would strengthen anti-North Korea defences by moving ahead with the early deployment of the Thaad missile-defence system.
China has spoken out against the North’s weapons tests and has supported UN sanctions. It has repeatedly called for talks while appearing increasingly frustrated with the North.
But Pence and Hwang said they were troubled by retaliatory economic moves by China against the deployment in South Korea of a US anti-missile system known as Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (Thaad).
South Korea, which accuses China of discriminating against some South Korean companies working in China, and the United States say the sole purpose of Thaad is to guard against North Korean missiles.
China says its powerful radar can penetrate its territory and undermine its security and spoke out against it again on Monday.
