British AUG arrives in South Korean waters without the right to enter the port

20

HMS Queen Elizabeth, at the head of an aircraft carrier strike group, arrived in the waters of South Korea to conduct joint exercises with local sailors. Its presence in this region is justified by a demonstration of support for merchant shipping.

At the same time, the AUG ships were denied the right to enter the port of the capital of the country:

The aircraft carrier planned to dock in Busan, but this plan was canceled due to the situation with COVID-19

- explained in the UK Defense Journal.

As reported in The News of Portsmouth, South Korea is currently in the grip of a wave of coronavirus, which has forced the authorities to take precautions. However, according to the newspaper's columnist, in fact, the refusal to visit the port was caused by indignation on the part of the DPRK associated with Britain's attempt to "play gunboat diplomacy."



London's first move in this direction was the decision to send two patrol ships, HMS Spey and HMS Tamar, now based in Portsmouth, into Asian waters for several years. This, as noted in the publication, provoked "fierce attacks" from the DPRK.

For our part, we note: it is likely that Seoul did not allow British ships to enter its port, not because of Pyongyang's irritation, but, hiding behind the outbreak of coronavirus, actually showed the undesirability of the presence of the Royal fleet in the region. South Korea, even without his participation, is able to defend its interests, possessing a powerful fleet.

Against the background of these considerations, the question arises: what is the British AUG doing in the waters of Asia? It is possible that the answer to it lies in the official statement of the DPRK:

Britain is sending warships to the remote Asia-Pacific region, using the "threat" from us as an excuse, and in fact is trying to restore its degrading status on the world stage.

      I doubt very much.
      South Korea will do anything to spite its northern neighbor.
      Most likely, they named the real reason - in England, the virus strains are breeding too actively. Nobody wants to bring a new strain into the country.

        Especially if you still remember about the possible reaction of China to such an AUG call at Poussan. Yes

        If the ship has not entered the ports for more than 2 weeks, and there is no covid on it, it will not deliver anything new. On the contrary, it will pick up a new strain from Koreans.

          So these are the British.
          Lies are the very essence of their external policy.
          It can easily be said that there is no covid when it is.
          Just so that there were fewer "yellows" in the world.

            If it appears on the ship, then you cannot hide it, it will spread quickly. And it is not so difficult to check the command in the port.

    Sailors and pilots need practice. They get it. For one, countries that combine themselves not friendly to Britain have the opportunity to test the capabilities of the AUG. The pilots there are both British and American

    The F-35B, although it pulled the entire JSF program down, setting an incredibly high bar for the unification of all three aircraft, is still the most beneficial for the American allies.

    Japan, Korea, Britain, Italy and others can combine a small aircraft carrier with the capabilities of a fifth generation fighter that will surpass any enemy aircraft for many decades to come.

    Everything is simpler. "The aircraft carrier was planning to dock in Busan" ... The Koreans said that they simply did not have such a city. I haven't found it on the map.

    I do not understand the violent reaction of the local community.
    The Britons have an aircraft carrier. Should he stand at the wall in Britain?
    The team must train. The ship must display a flag.
    Why else was it built?
    Since there is no open war, he walks around, demonstrates himself.
    What's the problem? :)

    It is necessary to develop a carrier-based version of the Su-75 and begin construction of an analogue of the British aircraft carrier.
