The tension in North Korea when it comes to its nuclear test programs is prodding the United States to perform a military exercise with its allies in Asia. Because of the increasing tension, the U.S. government has been conducting maritime military exercises with Japan and South Korea the past days.
It was reported that North Korea might launch its first missile test to mark the 85th anniversary of its army. Because of this, U.S. grew more concerned as it initiated military exercises in the Asian region with the help of South Korea and Japan.
Lately, it was reported that the U.S. government has already started with this in order to combat the continuing provocation of North Korea. According to TIME, the U.S. Navy confirmed that their USS Wayne E. Meyer has already started to carry out military exercises with Wang Geon of South Korea's navy on some part of the Korean Peninsula.
Meanwhile, the USS Fitzgerald has also joined forces with Japan's Chokai this time in the west of Japan. Apart from the above-mentioned countries, other nations also expressed their concern because of the missile threat which North Korea might launch anytime.
Moreover, it has been claimed that this move of the U.S. government through the administration of President Donald Trump is just a proof that the country is maximizing its help to preserve security and stability in the affected Asian regions. Further, this also shows that the U.S. is flexible to work with its allied countries in order to settle peace and any form of deterrence.
But according to some reports, North Korea also gave a warning to these countries telling them that if they insist, they have no choice but to launch the missiles. Despite this warning, still, these countries will pursue their military exercise through their naval forces as per USA News.
Last time, it has been reported that the U.S. government is prompting China to pressure North Korea in order to halt its missile testing. With this, China is thinking of ending its economic partnership with North Korea in in terms of oil supply.
