Reuters first with news Japan plans to send largest warship to South China Sea

Reuters was ahead of the competition in reporting that Japan is planning its biggest show of naval force in the region since World War Two, dispatching its largest warship on a three-month tour through the South China Sea beginning in May. The Izumo helicopter carrier, commissioned only two years ago, will make stops in Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Sri Lanka before joining the Malabar joint naval exercise with Indian and U.S. naval vessels in the Indian Ocean in July. The Izumo’s primary mission is anti-submarine warfare.
