Korea Start Drills In Show Of Force Against N. Korea

U.S. President Donald Trump meets with South Korean President Moon Jae In at the Blue House in Seoul on Nov. 7.  AP

The paper denounced the US president's Asia trip as "a warmonger's trip for confrontation with the North", "an old miser's trip to sell arms", and "a chief terrorist's trip for self-destruction".

He directly addressed North Korea in a speech at South Korea's parliament on Wednesday, telling Kim Jong Un: "Do not underestimate us".

The ongoing war of words has kept several countries on its toes, including the likes of South Korea, Japan, China and Russian Federation.

The USS Ronald Reagan, USS Nimitz and USS Theodore Roosevelt strike groups operated together, marking the first time three American aircraft carriers have trained together since 2007, according to the U.S. Pacific Fleet which released a video of the training on Sunday.

It marks the first time that three USA aircraft carriers have joined together at close range for a joint exercise with South Korea, officials said.

The exercises will also involve 11 U.S. Aegis ships and seven South Korean naval vessels, including two Aegis ships.

The US and North Korea have always been engaged in back-and-forth barbs over the latter's threat of a nuclear attack. The Aegis technology refers to missile tracking and guidance.

The goal of the exercise was to demonstrate the U.S. Navy's ability to "operate multiple carrier strike groups as a coordinated strike force efforts", the navy said, adding that the three carrier strike groups will conduct training including "air defense drills, sea surveillance, replenishment at sea, defensive air combat training, close-in coordinated maneuver".

The North Korean spokesman, though, said nothing would strop Pyongyang from pursuing its nuclear weapons program.

Tensions have been running high since North Korea test-fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July, conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3 and flew ballistic missiles over Japan on August 29 and September 15.

Trump threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea and also called Kim Jong-un as "Little Rocket Man", while North Korea denounced Trump as a "mentally deranged United States dotard".
