According to the interlocutors of the publication, the Pacific group can be formed by analogy with the permanent NATO naval forces in the Atlantic Ocean created in 1968.
It is reported that this project will also allow the military to allocate additional funds to solve the “Chinese problem.”
“We are considering several proposals for the Indo-Pacific region to better coordinate our actions there,” the source told the media.
He also added that this initiative was the result of the work of the Pentagon Task Force on China, created on behalf of Joe Biden, but none of the proposed plans has yet been finalized.
At present, it is not known whether the group will include only American ships or the participation of other countries is envisaged.
