A new U.S. guided missile destroyer docked in Japan on Saturday amid tensions over North Korea's missile tests, but the military said the arrival was routine and had been planned months ago.

The USS Mustin sailed into the port of Yokosuka, home to the Navy's 7th Fleet, with a crew of 300 for permanent assignment to the region, fleet spokeswoman Hanako Tomizuka said.

The Mustin, commissioned in 2003, is one of the most advanced in the fleet. The 509-foot ship carries surface-to-air missiles and Tomahawk cruise missiles
