Details of a new US military strategy USA to keep six aircraft war carriers in Asia
First details of a new U.S. military strategy
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on Saturday said that The United States will move the majority of its warships to the Asia-Pacific in coming years and keep six aircraft carriers in the region.
Panetta said the United States would reposition its Navy fleet so that 60 percent of its warships would be assigned to the region by 2020, compared to about 50 percent now.
The Navy would maintain six aircraft carriers assigned to the Pacific. Six of its 11 carriers are now assigned to the Pacific but that number will fall to five when the USS Enterprise retires this year.
The number will return to six when the new carrier USS Gerald R. Ford is completed in 2015.
The U.S. Navy had a fleet of 282 ships, including support vessels, as of March.
That is expected to slip to about 276 over the next two years before beginning to rise toward the goal of a 300-ship fleet.
But China will not like this move but the move is good for India if India develops a good relationship with USA .
India needs to sign a war cooperation treaty with USA this will end majority problems which today India is facing.
And the treaty will solve the doubts about USA also.
