A U.S. aircraft carrier has arrived in South Korea for the first time in six months in a show of alliance after North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles that it said served as warnings to the two allies. South Korea’s Defense Ministry said the 11th carrier strike group, including the nuclear-powered USS Nimitz, arrived at the Busan naval base on Tuesday after participating in a joint drill near Jeju Island the previous day. The U.S. carrier strike group 11 is also comprised of USS Bunker Hill, a Ticonderoga-guided missile cruiser, and two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, USS Wayne E. Meyer and USS Decatur, the ministry stated. They will hold joint maritime exercises with South Korean warships as part of the Warrior Shield exercise, including aircraft carrier convoy training and air defense warfare, to strengthen their joint defense posture.
