Joint Naval Drill With USS Carl Vinson Ongoing

A defense official says a joint drill between South Korean warships and the U.S. naval strike group led by the USS Carl Vinson will continue in waters near the Korean Peninsula.  

A South Korean Navy spokesman told reporters Tuesday that the drill is under way with no end date set.
 
The U.S. aircraft carrier strike group launched the joint exercise with South Korea’s Navy on April 29th.
 
A military official said the joint drill includes maritime maneuvering, communications training and take-off and landing of carrier-borne aircraft.
 
The official said the length of the drill has not been affected by North Korea's ballistic missile test on Sunday.
 
The strike group includes the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier, two destroyers and a cruiser.
