The United States has sent a fleet of battle-ready aircraft carriers into waters in the Western Pacific near the Diaoyu Islands. Japan’s media reports that the two aircraft carriers are on a surveillance mission in the region.

Reports said two US Navy aircraft carrier battle groups and a Marine Corps air-ground task force have begun operating in the Western Pacific.

That includes the USS George Washington carrier strike group, which has begun operating in the East China Sea, and the USS John C. Stennis group, which is deployed slightly further away in the South China Sea. The US said the deployment was part of efforts to help maintain regional peace and stability.
