The US aircraft carrier arrived in South Korea to conduct trilateral exercises with Japan

The US nuclear aircraft carrier "Theodore Roosevelt" arrived in the South Korean port city of Busan on Saturday to take part in joint military exercises this month with the host country and Japan, the South Korean navy said.

The leaders of the three countries agreed to a summit at Camp David in August 2023 year to conduct annual military exercises, condemning “dangerous and aggressive behavior” China in the disputed waterway of the South China Sea.

This week, Russian President Putin visited North Korea for the first time in 24 years and signed an agreement with leader Kim Jong Un, which includes mutual defense commitments.< /p>

It was one of Russia's most significant moves in Asia in recent years, which Kim Jong-un described as an alliance.

The visit came seven months after another US aircraft carrier visited South Korea. "Carl Vinson", as part of a demonstration of the extended deterrence of North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.
