NTV and TV Asahi reported at noon on a New York Times story saying that the USS Carl Vinson had not been heading toward the Korean Peninsula to deter North Korea, but was steaming toward the Indian Ocean to participate in joint exercises with the Australian Navy. The networks said that the Carl Vinson is now traveling northward and is expected to arrive in the vicinity of the Korean Peninsula sometime next week. TV Asahi said some people are saying the nuclear carrier’s movements are part of President Trump’s strategy of putting pressure on North Korea while gauging the prospects for diplomatic efforts by China.
