Specifically, the official said that their aircraft carrier is located in the Sea of ​​Japan near the Korean Peninsula, to conduct joint exercises with Japanese forces.

South Korean media reported last week that U.S. warships had already approached the area amid growing tensions over North Korea’s missile tests that had exceeded the limits set in previous years.
