Asahi Shimbun: U.S. to deploy 2nd carrier group off Korean Peninsula
SEOUL--As part of efforts to guard against military provocations by North Korea, the United States will deploy a second aircraft carrier to waters off the Korean Peninsula.
A source with the U.S. military based in South Korea said that the USS Ronald Reagan strike group will sail to the Sea of Japan from its home port at Yokosuka Naval Base.
A strike force centered on the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson has been patrolling the waters off the Korean Peninsula since late April. With the dispatch of the Ronald Reagan, there is now the possibility that the U.S. Navy could have two carriers at the same time in those waters.
The Carl Vinson is expected to remain off the Korean Peninsula until June.
