Yoshihide Suga, Japanese chief cabinet secretary praised the U.S.'s approach towards the situation on the Korean peninsula. A U.S. Navy strike group will be moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula as a show of force. Suga reiterated that a show of strength by the U.S. is a great deterrence and is of importance to the region. Navy strike group Carl Vinson, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, will make its way toward the Korean peninsula from Singapore as a show of force. That comes after Pyongyang tested a liquid-fueled Scud missile this month.
