TOKYO (AFP) - The US aircraft carrier Carl Vinson and other warships started joint exercises with Japan on Sunday (April 23), the American navy said, as regional tensions rise over North Korea's missile and nuclear programmes.
The exercises - also involving a US guided-missile cruiser and guided-missile destroyer - are being held in the Philippine Sea, the navy said, as the naval strike group "continued its northern transit in the Western Pacific".
Confusion has clouded the carrier group's whereabouts in recent days after US President Donald Trump suggested the "armada" was steaming towards North Korea when in fact it was sent towards Australia.
