U.S., Japan keen to coordinate military operations to deter North Korea

Thursday’s Nikkei took up increased coordination of late between the U.S. military and the SDF as evidenced by recent joint drills involving three U.S. aircraft carriers and B-52 strategic bombers, speculating that the two nations are eager to display coordinated military operations to deter North Korea’s provocations. Referring to these operations as a “flexible deterrent option,” the daily said they appear to be working as Pyongyang has refrained from conducting nuclear and missile tests over the past two months.
