美 항공모함 루스벨트호, 한반도 포함 7함대 작전구역 진입

The Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group has entered the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations... which includes the Korean Peninsula.
Though it's part of the nuclear-powered behemoth's regularly scheduled deployment... some observers view it as a move to amp up military pressure on North Korea ahead of summit talks
Park Ji-won tells us more.
According to the official U.S. Navy website and the official website for the U.S. 7th Fleet,... the Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt and its Carrier Strike Group has entered the 7th Fleet area of operation,... which encompasses the two Koreas, Japan, China and Russia.
The USS Theodore Roosevelt left its home port of San Diego, California last October,... and successfully completed about four months of operations in the Arabian Gulf and Red Sea.
The Carrier Strike Group will conduct a range of maritime operations with the navies of U.S. partners and allies in the region,... to enhance security cooperation and interoperability.
With the USS Theodore Roosevelt entering the 7th Fleet's area of responsibility,... a total of three nuclear-powered aircraft carriers,... the Roosevelt, the USS Ronald Reagan,... which is permanently forward-deployed to the area,... and the USS Carl Vinson,... are currently deployed in the area.
The U.S. has reportedly decided not to include drills involving aircraft carriers during this year's annual joint military exercises with Seoul,... starting next month,.. yet some watchers say deploying three aircraft carriers in the region could be seen as an attempt to put pressure on Pyongyang, ahead of possible talks between the U.S. and North Korea.
The U.S. 7th Fleet is the largest forward-deployed U.S. fleet,... made up of over sixty ships and submarines,... some 140 aircraft and some 20-thousand navy personnel,... covering more than 120 million square kilometers in the western Pacific and Indian oceans.
