` US Air Force Deploys Two Long Distance Drones Golden Hawk to Base in Japan ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – June 01 – The US air force has deployed two of its most advanced long-distance surveillance drones to a base in northern Japan.

According to the AP news agency, the unarmed Global Hawk aircraft were deployed to Japan over the past week from their home base on the Pacific island of Guam.

They are expected to enhance the US military’s ability to monitor nuclear activities in North Korea and Chinese naval operations, and to assess natural disasters to assist humanitarian aid operations.

The deployment to Japan, a key US ally, is intended to further demonstrate Washington’s commitment to security in Asia as part of its rebalancing of forces to the Pacific.
