US Nuclear Submarine Arrived to South Korea 

The US nuclear submarine USS Missouri reached the South Korean port of Busan on Sunday after a meeting between these two countries. 

As per a report by Yonhap news agency, a nuclear-loaded US submarine reached a South Korean port on Sunday. According to the reports, the US sent their Submarine USS Missouri, also known as SSN-780, after a nuclear consultative group meeting with South Korea. The second nuclear consultation meeting between the United States and South Korea took place in Washington last Friday.

The statement sent a strong message: “Any nuclear attack by North Korea against the United States and its allies is unacceptable and will result in the end of the Kim regime.”

North Korea to test-launch an intercontinental ballistic missile. 

Earlier this week, a South Korean senior official said that North Korea may test-launch an intercontinental ballistic missile in December. Now that an American submarine has reached South Korea, it is speculated that America is about to carry out some major operations against North Korea. 

This operation may also be to stop North Korea’s upcoming missile test. However, there has been no official confirmation of this or any operation.

SSN-780 is not the first US Nuclear Submarine to reach South Korea

SSN-780 is not the first submarine that has reached South Korea. Previously, the United States has sent some of its powerful weapons to South Korea. Visiting frequent weapons has been possible with an agreement between Seoul and Washington. 

Another US nuclear submarine, the USS Santa Fe, reached the South Korean island of Jeju in November. In addition, a US aircraft carrier also reached Busan port in South Korea in November. 

According to the information received so far, North Korea has not made any official comment on this matter. For more international updates, please visit our Global Politics section.
