The United States may send a nuclear aircraft carrier to exercises with South Korea.

South Korea and the United States are holding consultations on the participation of a US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier in a joint alliance exercise in March.


In March, for the first time since 2018, joint South Korea and the United States exercises Freedom Shield, which will include field maneuvers, combat simulations and war games, are to be held in full scale for the first time.


According to some reports, in the event of a positive decision on the issue, the US Nimitz-class aircraft carrier may take part in the exercises. The South Korean Ministry of Defense has not yet confirmed this information.

“The deployment of key US military assets took place in close consultation between South Korea and the United States,” the experts said.
