As tension is brewing around the Korean Peninsula, the U.S Military has ordered a Navy strike group to move towards that region, amid growing concerns about North Korea’s missile programme.

The Navy War Vessel known as Carl Vinson Strike Group, comprises an aircraft carrier and other warships.

The carrier group has the capability to intercept ballistic missiles while having massive striking power.

U.S. pacific command described the deployment, heading towards the western pacific – as a prudent measure to maintain readiness in the region.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has said the U.S is prepared to act alone to deal with the nuclear threat from North Korea if China fails to assist in dealing with the issue.

North Korea has carried out several nuclear tests and experts predict more that could be in the offing as the country moves closer towards developing a nuclear warhead with a big enough range to reach the U.S.
