US’ nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan along with South Korean warships launched a new round of naval drills on October 7. The drills are being carried out in Korean Peninsula. This has come a day after North Korea fired more ballistic missiles and flew warplanes in an escalation of tensions.
