A total of 20 ships and submarines and a group of 100 air crafts would be participating in the four day naval exercise in the Sea of Japan.

China has also states strong concerns over the naval exercise that is going to take place in the Yellow Sea after some time. The US would be including a Nuclear powered aircraft carrier in the exercise, which has also become a point of concern in the region.
On the other hand, the new sanction which have been kept forward by the US in context of N. Korea, would be stressing on the sales and purchase of N. Korea’s military weapons which include arms and ammunition. And this would help prevent any nuclear proliferation by the N. Koreans.
