MSDF to conduct joint training with three U.S. aircraft carriers on Sunday

Saturday’s Sankei and Mainichi reported that three MSDF vessels and three U.S. Navy nuclear-powered aircraft carriers will conduct joint military training in the Sea of Japan on Sunday. The paper said the joint drills are intended to demonstrate strong partnership between the U.S. and Japan and put pressure on North Korea.


Sunday’s Nikkei reported that diplomatic sources from Japan and South Korea disclosed that although the U.S. originally proposed holding trilateral military exercises between the U.S., Japan, and South Korea, it has been decided that the U.S. will hold separate training with South Korea and Japan due to South Korea’s opposition to trilateral drills. The paper said the U.S.-ROK joint military training will be held in the Sea of Japan from Nov. 11 to 14.
