pm local time on October 24, Yonhap quoted South Korean government source as saying, “this year may not be implemented a U.S. aircraft carrier to participate in the US-ROK joint military exercises. ” This message was quickly reproduced the Western media, the Western commentators said, this may be warming up of Sino-US military relations, the United States to avoid provoking China and initiatives. But the U.S. military later said, “there ‘Washington’ aircraft carrier to participate in US-South Korean military exercises will be planned.” US-ROK military exercise on the issue, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said the 26th, hope relevant parties make joint efforts maintaining regional peace and stability.
Korean media hints:
afraid to cancel military exercises to stimulate the DPRK
both Korea and the U.S. planned this month in the West Sea (Yellow Sea) to implement the “Washington” aircraft carrier to participate in joint military exercises. South Korea, “Central Daily” and Yonhap October 24 quoted government sources as saying: “because this year September 27 to October 1 in the western waters of the South Korean anti-submarine exercises, so again this month, large-scale military exercise will be subject to a variety of conditions, constraints, coupled with the recent western waters will not be implemented in Dongguk US-ROK joint military exercise. “
Korean media said this interpretation, which is to create a successful convening of the G20 summit atmosphere. In other words, the G20 summit (November 11 to 12 in Seoul), you will not have Dongguk West Sea aircraft carrier to participate in the implementation of large-scale military exercises, so as not to provoke China and North Korea. In addition, since the US-DPRK military colonel/colonel-level meeting with a large inter-Korean Red Cross access to other, easing the current situation on the peninsula, probably will not be held this year in the U.S. aircraft carrier to participate in US-South Korean military exercises. However, South Korean Defense Ministry official said, “joint military exercise on the implementation aspects of the aircraft carrier, not with the U.S. strategy on time and participate in specific consultations.”
U.S. think tank to rally:
not into the Yellow Sea is a failure
issued the report in the Korean media After the U.S. naval base in Yokosuka, Japan Seventh Fleet spokesman Captain Jeff Davis, October 25 on the U.S. “Stars and Stripes”, said: “We have declared, ‘Washington’ in the Yellow Sea aircraft carrier will join the US-ROK joint exercise, both from South Korea in July this year, to conduct a series of exercises designed to deter North Korea, will participate in one of the carrier once the plan has not changed. “Walter Sharp, commander of U.S. forces in Korea 26 for the U.S. Associated Press Correspondents say that, originally scheduled for the end of October at the US-ROK exercise delayed temporarily due to scheduling problems, but will soon be implemented. However, he refused to disclose the specific date.
U.S. based conservative think tank in Washington, “Heritage Foundation”, 25, published on its website entitled “The U.S. commitment to freedom of navigation in the Yellow Sea void it?” Article, saying that if the U.S. military To avoid provoking China and decided to delay the exercise, no doubt Washington to Beijing to make a “huge cost of compromise.” The article said that although the Chinese government has been sensitive to the Yellow Sea in protest against the US-ROK exercises, but these exercises are conducted in international waters, there is no reason to oppose Beijing (Editor’s Note: China’s Foreign Ministry repeated its position, hope all parties concerned to jointly promote regional security, not to take action to make the situation worse end of last year the U.S. aircraft carrier exercise in the Yellow Sea, China has not clearly expressed their opposition, but this year’s “day” ship incident, a sudden deterioration in regional security situation, in this context, held for goal of the exercise is so obvious, obviously detrimental). The article went on to say that if the U.S. really decided not to allow aircraft into the Yellow Sea, from the perspective of game theory is the failure of the U.S. commitment to defend allies, but also advertised on the high seas freedom of navigation in its usual policy failure, which seems to prove that: the United States in decline, and China’s rise. Recent series of U.S. initiatives, such as suspension of C-130 military transport crude oil exports to China removed restrictions on disclosure (see Oct. 19 Japan-related reports), aerospace and other Department officers visited China, but also to show people that concept: the core of the region is China, not the United States.
