United States and Korea navies to conduct joint maritime counter special operations exercise

The U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan was expected to arrive at South Korea in the near future as the South Korean navy announced the joint maritime drills with the U.S. navy next week. Pyongyang stated that any act of aggression by the US and South Korea would only "advance their own demise".

The deployment of US strategic military assets to South Korea came amid the heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula following the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) sixth nuclear test in September.

Vessels from the United States Navy and the Republic of Korea (ROK) Navy are scheduled to participate in the Maritime Counter Special Operations exercise (MCSOFEX) Oct. 17-20, in the East and West Seas to promote communications, interoperability, and partnership in the 7th Fleet area of operations.

It's a "regular, joint and combined exercise to counter North Korea's maritime threats and sharpen the interoperability of South Korea and the US", said Vice Admiral Jung Jin-seop, Commander of the South Korean Navy's Operations.

Pyongyang responded to the report through its state-run KCNA news agency, which said, "If the U.S. imperialists and the South Korean puppets ignite an aggressive nuclear war against us, it would only advance their own demise".

The USS Michigan arrived in the southern port city of Busan on Friday, the second USA submarine in as many weeks to arrive on the divided peninsula.

Yonhap quoted a South Korean official who said the Tucson "had left" and that the U.S. Navy "did not disclose its next destination".

With a length of 170.6 meters and 18,000-tonnes behind it, the vessel is the second Ohio-class nuclear-powered guided missile submarine in the US Navy.
