Three aircraft carriers will conduct a rare exercise in the Pacific.
In a statement Wednesday, Admiral Scott Swift announced the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan, U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt, and U.S.S. Nimitz will come together in the Sea of Japan on Saturday to conduct several drills.
He mentioned that this type of operation is very complex.
According to Swift, the operation will act as a reminder to North Korea that the U.S. is strongly committed “to the security and stability of the region.”
This will be the first time in 10 years the Navy has carried out this type of exercise in the western Pacific.
