The USS Ronald Reagan, USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Nimitz and their multi-ship strike groups are participating in military exercises off the Korean Peninsula.

The exercises started on November 11 and are set to end on November 14. It is the first time three of the US aircraft carriers have sailed together in more than a decade.

A US nuclear sumbarine has been also deployed in the region, according to reports.

In turn, North Korea described US President Donald Trump as a “destroyer” who “begged for nuclear war”.

“His current trip [Asia tour] to our surrounding region is a warmonger’s visit for confrontation to rid the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) of its self-defensive nuclear deterrence,” North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement published by Korean Central News Agency.

According to experts, the US move will only further convince North Korea in the need of developing its missile and nuclear programs. The country sees them as the only tool to stop a possible US-led military operation against it.
