US may deploy aircraft carrier to Korean peninsula next month: Yonhap

Seoul: The United States is considering deploying an aircraft carrier to the Korean peninsula next month, South Korea`s Yonhap News Agency said on Sunday.

US Forces Korea said it had no knowledge of the matter, when asked about the Yonhap report.

US forces flew a B-52 bomber over its ally South Korea on Sunday following North Korea`s nuclear bomb test last week.

Yonhap said it was possible that a carrier would join a U.S.-South Korea joint naval exercise to send a warning message to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who said his country conducted a hydrogen bomb test as a self-defence step against what it said was a U.S. threat of nuclear war.
