North Korea calls United States aircraft carrier dispatch outrageous

North Korea calls United States aircraft carrier dispatch outrageous

"The American administration in the Pacific ordered the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson to be now available in the Western Pacific as a precautionary measure", said spokesman Dave Behnam, citing the growing concern caused by the ballistic and nuclear program of North Korea regime.

The strike group, called Carl Vinson, includes an aircraft carrier and was making its way from Singapore toward the Korean Peninsula, according to the official, who was not authorized to speak to the media and requested anonymity.

"Well, it's prudent to do it, isn't it?" he replied.

A South Korean official in March said the North is likely to conduct "high-intensity strategic provocations such as a nuclear test" or an intercontinental ballistic missile on key dates for the nation.

North Korea has carried out five nuclear tests, two of them in 2016, and the satellite imagery screened by the experts suggests that the Pyongyang regime may be preparing a sixth test.

"The president has asked to be prepared to give him a full range of options to remove that threat the American people and to our allies and partners in the region", McMaster said.

The Carl Vinson Strike Group, which includes an aircraft carrier and several destroyers, has been deployed to the region since the beginning of the year.

Griezmann goal prevents Real Madrid derby victory
Sevilla honored sports director Ramon "Monchi" Rodriguez, who is leaving the club this summer, with a tribute before the match . But the equaliser seemed to have more to do with a slip from Madrid's defence, rather than any masterplan from the bench.

Speaking on ABC's This Week on Sunday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cited the weapon, potentially capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, as the administration's greatest concern.

"We will bolster up in every way our capability for self-defense to cope with the USA evermore reckless moves for a war and defend ourselves with our own force", the report continued.

On April 5, North Korea launched a projectile, later identified as a Scud extended-range missile, into the sea off the Korean Peninsula.

"Presidents before and President Trump agreed that that is unacceptable, that what must happen is the denuclearization of the peninsula", McMaster told Fox News.

"This goes to prove that the U.S. reckless moves for invading the DPRK have reached a serious phase", a spokesman for the North's foreign ministry said according to state news agency KCNA.

VanDiver said the U.S. Navy's show of force will be enough to keep North Korea from using their nuclear arsenal.

"Neither the U.S. nor North Korea would take the initiative to wage a war, but the risk of conflict is higher as a small miscalculation or accident could bring a war to the peninsula", Zhang Tuosheng from the China Foundation for worldwide and Strategic Studies told the South China Morning Post. The report did not name the official, which is common in the news agency's reports.

The review de-emphasizes direct military action, but a pre-emptive strike on the North is not off the table.

"But I think there's a shared view and no disagreement as to how unsafe the situation has become". "And I think even China is beginning to recognize that this presents a threat ... to China's interests as well". In fact, the Vinson was in South Korea last month for military exercises.

The China-US presidential summit, held at Mar-a-Lago in Florida on Thursday and Friday, failed to deliver any concrete agreement on how to rein in North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes between the two nations.

The US Treasury recently slapped sanctions on 11 North Korean business representatives and one company, while US politicians overwhelmingly backed a bill relisting the North as a state sponsor of terror.

President Donald Trump drew attention to the issue ahead of his Mar-a-Lago summit with Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping by declaring the US would "solve" the North Korea issue on its own if China did not take unspecified action to do so.

Trump has previously said that the U.S. is prepared to act alone to deal with any nuclear threat from North Korea.

But Shawn VanDiver, an expert with the Truman National Security Project, does not believe the USA military will be forced to strike North Korea.
