Publisert Sist oppdatert

Embarking on its multiple months long journey after leaving Britain in May, the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier arrived in Japan on Saturday, September 4 in an effort to make its military presence known in the region.

Japan has expressed that China is a national security threat and that having the British visit holds significance to helping maintain and strengthen a free and open Indo-Pacific.

Japan’s Defense Chief, Defense Minister and other senior Japanese military commanders received a royal tour of the aircraft carrier on Monday when it arrived at a nearby Tokyo naval base.

To maintain a regional presence after the HMS Queen Elizabeth carrier strike group returns, two British warships will remain behind.
