    The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and its strike group docked in Busan on Thursday.
    The Reagan's visit aims to demonstrate the U.S.' commitment to the alliance with South Korea, which marks its 70th anniversary amid escalating North Korean provocations, the Defense Ministry here said.
    Carrier Strike Group 5, which includes Aegis destroyers and other warships, will stay in Busan until next Monday. Their crew will meet South Korean sailors and engage in friendly athletic activities with the aim of promoting friendship with South Korea, while local people are invited to visit the aircraft carrier.
    The strike group is part of the 7th Fleet headquartered at Yokosuka, Japan.
    Earlier this week, the Reagan took part in a maritime interdiction drill and anti-piracy exercise with South Korea and Japan in international waters southeast of Jeju Island. The exercises were conducted to improve the three countries' capabilities in the face of growing threats of North Korean nuclear weapons and missiles.
