The US Navy's aircraft carrier group, which includes the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, began conducting military exercises near the coast of the Korean peninsula. Japanese Navy ships also participate in the exercises, Yomiuri Shimbun reports.

According to the report, the Japanese ships joined the US carrier strike group in the western Pacific Ocean near the Philippines.

The aim of the exercises is to exert pressure on North Korea due to the continuing testing of ballistic missiles.

In addition, American and Japanese sailors should work out their interaction. Maneuvers, which involve two Japanese destroyers Ashigara and Samidare, will last from three to five days.

After this, as expected, the strike carrier group of the United States will be deployed near the Korean peninsula.
