Instead of maneuvers off the coast of Korea, a strike group of U.S. warships led by the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson is 3.5 thousand miles from the sea of Japan. In the Indian ocean, she conducts exercises with Australian forces. Thus, no ships promised by Washington off the coast of the Korean Peninsula is not.
Strike group the U.S. Navy, led by the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, which was now located off the coast of North Korea, they never appeared.

Last week the Pentagon chief James Mattis said that the joint Australia exercises were canceled because of the decision to send a team to the Korean Peninsula. Representatives of the American Ministry of defense later said the Minister misspoke and meant that the Armada will not enter the port of Australia to redistribute to the group before sending to the DPRK. Now it is noted that the aircraft carrier and other US Navy ships should go to Japan sea only by the end of April.
