USA aircraft carriers to conduct joint drill in Pacific

The largest USA warship in Asia, the USS Ronald Reagan, will join the USS Nimitz and the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the naval exercise on November 11-14.

The Navy noted that for more than 70 years, the U.S. Pacific Fleet has been a persistent and stabilizing presence conducting operations throughout the region.

It is the first time that three aircraft carriers are conducting drills together in the western Pacific since the Valiant Shield exercises in 2006 and 2007 off the coast of the island of Guam.

Animosity between the United States and the isolated regime could increase further when the first three-aircraft carrier exercise begins on Saturday.

Three U.S. military aircraft carriers are heading to the same part of the world at the same time, to take part in a rare military exercise not seen in a decade.

The U.S. Navy announced Wednesday that it will commence rare three-carrier strike force exercises in the Western Pacific starting this weekend and coinciding with the final leg of President Donald Trump's Asia tour.

"Multiple carrier strike force operations are very complex, and this exercise in the Western Pacific is a strong testament to the US Pacific Fleet's unique ability and ironclad commitment to the continued security and stability of the region".

Trump also noted that the three US aircraft carriers "are appropriately positioned" near the Korean Peninsula.

According to The Associated Press, officials have said recently that the exercise is meant to demonstrate USA resolve with allies Japan and South Korea during the ongoing crisis with North Korea.

During his recent visit to Seoul, Trump said, " North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned.

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.

Addressing the North Korea crisis, the US President tweeted: "NoKo has interpreted America's past restraint as weakness".

North Korea has repeatedly complained about American naval exercises in the region, but it has sparked global condemnation with repeated tests of missiles and nuclear weapons.

The CIA has said North Korea could be only months away from developing the ability to hit the United States with nuclear weapons, a scenario Trump has vowed to prevent. Trump unveiled his plans to boost USA forces there earlier this year.
