United States plans to deploy F-35s to Asia-Pacific Region

The United States plans to deploy F-35 stealth fighter jets in the Asia-Pacific region, in an apparent move to check China’s growing military presence in the region.

US Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told a forum in Washington on Wednesday that the Pentagon intends send its most advanced fighter to the region.

Carter said the US has already deployed F-22s to the US Kadena air base in Okinawa.

He said that some US naval vessels including an aircraft carrier will move from the Middle East to the Asia-Pacific region after military operations in Afghanistan end.

Japan’s Air Self-Defense Force will adopt F-35s as its next mainstay fighter jet.
