The Wall Street Journal reported that the US plans to dispatch스포츠토토 its largest nuclear warhead submarine to South Korea for the first time in 40 years.
The nuclear submarine coming to Korea is an Ohio class that can fire nuclear warheads at targets thousands of kilometers away.
The Wall Street Journal explained that the United States’ dispatch of the largest strategic nuclear submarine is aimed at rattling North Korea’s Kim Jong-un regime, which has been conducting missile provocations for the past several years.
In addition, it was evaluated as significant in that it was the first practical outcome of the’Washington Declaration’ agreed upon by President Seok-Yeol Yoon and President Joe Biden in April.
However, the Wall Street Journal reported that officials in the US and South Korea have yet to disclose the timing of the submarine armed with nuclear warheads.
In response, the Ministry of National Defense said, “South Korea and the United States are closely discussing plans to expand the deployment of US strategic assets,” but said that they could not confirm the US strategic nuclear submarine’s plan to call on the Korean Peninsula.
