China, Russia Send Ships To North Korea

By

Chinese and Russian spy vessels have been sent to shadow the group of U.S. aircraft carriers that are heading toward North Korean waters, Japanese media outlets reported Monday. The move comes amid escalating tensions surrounding Pyongyang’s nuclear efforts. President Trump has described the vessels as an “armada” and said additional and more powerful submarines are also en route. Japan’s largest daily newspaper reports the ships are “strengthening warning and surveillance activities in the waters and airspace around the area.” Tour companies in China have also halted all work arranging groups to visit North Korea, which was until now a popular travel destination for Chinese tourists.
