  • USA sends a second aircraft carrier at North Korea

The US Navy is moving a second aircraft carrier to the Korean Peninsula to take part in training exercises days after North Korea conducted a "successful" ballistic missile test.

The two carriers will conduct joint military exercises, the news channel cited the Navy as saying.

The nuclear-powered USS Ronald Reagan departed for the Korean Peninsula on Tuesday after undergoing a maintenance period and sea trials in its base in Japan, CNN reported.

The 1,092-foot Reagan carries a crew of 4,539 and is equipped with roughly 60 aircraft, according to the Navy.

"Coming out of a long in-port maintenance period we have to ensure that Ronald Reagan and the remainder of the strike group are integrated properly as we move forward", Rear Adm. Charles Williams said in a press release.

The Vinson arrived at the Korean Peninsula in April in anticipation of Pyongyang's latest round of missile tests.

However, the US military has expressed doubts over the claimed range of the missile.

Meanwhile, media reported that newly-acquired satellite images show that North Korea is modernizing its Sohae Satellite Launching Station located in the North Pyongan province, from which four ballistic missiles were launched in March 2017. The president said solving the North Korea problem without armed conflict would be preferable, but that it would not be easy.

Tensions have rapidly escalated on the Korean Peninsula since US President Donald Trump declared in early April he would be prepared to act "unilaterally" against Pyongyang - and North Korea has engaged in a series of military drills and test launches.

"Even so, the United States wants to exert pressure on Pyongyang to make it suspend work on developing nuclear weapons, given that North Korea is making some progress in this field". Next day, the country's government confirmed the missile had successfully reentered the earth's lower atmosphere.
