A statement from US Naval Forces Korea, Lieutenant commander Matt Knight with US Pacific Fleet, told Fox News that the submarine’s visit as “routine deployment.”
“US Navy ships and submarines routinely make port calls in a variety of locations,” he said.
“As a matter of routine, we do not discuss future operations or the details regarding the operations of our submarines. USS Michigan is currently on a routine deployment to the Indo-Asia-Pacific,” he added.
