WORLD War 3 fears were ramped up even further today when a US nuclear-powered submarine arrived on North Korea’s doorstep.

The USS Mississippi, one of the most advanced submarines in the world, docked up on the southern island of Jeju in South Korea.

With a crew of approximately 150, the 7,800-tonne Hawaii-based submarine is 114.9 metres long and 10.3 metres wide and can sail as deep as 250 metres at the maximum speed of 25 knots.

The port call comes at a time of escalating tensions between the US and North Korea, which has stepped up the pace of its nuclear weapons programme and missile provocations amid fears of World War 3.

Rear Admiral Brad Cooper, unit commander, said: “The US and ROK South Korea navies share a strong partnership that is continually strengthened by routine interactions that enhance and foster our relationship.

“This visit will allow Mississippi crew members the opportunity to enjoy the unique culture of the residents of Jeju island.”

Commander Eric J Rozek, commanding officer, said: “We are proud of our longstanding history and commitment to partnering with regional navies throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

“Through decades of exchange, training, and collaboration we have helped others build capabilities that, taken together, enhance regional security and stability.”

Today’s sub visit is likely to stir the pot even more as the war of words between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un continues.
