The United States and South Korea begin joint naval maneuvers.

Published on 26.9.2022

South Korea and the United States began, this Monday, September 26, their first combined naval exercises in five years near the peninsula, the day after North Korea launched a ballistic missile.

The United States is the main security ally of South Korea, where some 28,500 American soldiers are stationed under the pretext of protecting the country against its northern neighbor.

“This exercise was prepared to demonstrate the strong will of the South Korea-US alliance to respond to North Korean provocations,” the South Korean navy said in a statement, AFP reported.

The exercises, lasting four days, mobilize more than twenty ships, including the American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, as well as significant air assets.

They will consist of naval combat and anti-submarine warfare simulations, tactical maneuvers and other maritime operations, the navy said.

These exercises start the day after a ballistic missile test by Pyongyang, the latest in a long series that began several months ago.

North Korea, under international sanctions for its weapons programs, also adopted a new doctrine in early September proclaiming that it will never give up nuclear weapons.

Fox news reports on the other hand that North Korea fired a second ballistic missile at sea ahead of Vice President Harris’ visit to Seoul.

A second ballistic missile was fired at sea on Sunday ahead of Kamala Harris’ visit to the South Korean capital.

Kim Jong Un’s regime fired the first missile off its east coast on Saturday as the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier entered the area. The country frequently uses missile tests as a show of force.

Harris will travel to Seoul later this week as the US and South Korean armies hold joint exercises.
