Seoul, Washington start manoeuvers with USA aircraft carriers

During his visit to South Korea during his ongoing Asian tour, US President Donald Trump strongly criticised Pyongyang and twice referred to the deployment of the three aircraft carriers in the region.

It's the first time since 2007 that three United States carrier strike groups are operating together in the Western Pacific.

The San Diego-based USS Theodore Roosevelt will join two other nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in a rare strike-force exercise in the Sea of Japan beginning Saturday.

"A touch-and-go situation is prevailing in the peninsula due to the US and south Korean puppet forces' military provocations", the official Rodong Sinmun wrote.

"It is a rare opportunity to train with two aircraft carriers together, and even rarer to be able to train with three", U.S. Pacific Fleet chief Adm. Scott Swift said in a statement.

The United States and South Korea on Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017, started joint naval exercises that will involve three USA aircraft carriers in what military officials describe as a clear warning to North Korea.

The Reagan participated in the 2006 exercises, the Nimitz in 2007.

The U.S. Pacific Fleet has a determined and steady presence throughout the region, conducting operations for more than 70 years now. In recent months, U.S. Navy carriers have conducted dual-carrier strike group exercises in the Western Pacific, including in the contested South China Sea, East China Sea and Philippine Sea.

Defense officials told USNI News that, since all three carriers entered USA 7th Fleet in October, there would be likely that at least two of the carriers conducting joint operations.

"Trump, during his visit, laid bare his true nature as destroyer of world peace and stability and begged for a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula", a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said Saturday, in a statement published by the KCNA news agency.

The strike exercise has come up amidst growing tensions on the Korean Peninsula over Pyongyang's nuclear arms and ballistic missile programs.

Trump though tried to avoid his earlier threats to North Korea, was clear in his vows to counter aggravations with military force, according to the CNN.
