The three carriers, the USS Ronald Reagan, USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Nimitz, and their multi-ship strike groups are finishing up four days of exercises in the waters between South Korea and Japan on Tuesday. This is the first time that three carrier strike groups have operated together in the Western Pacific since exercises Valiant Shield 2006 and 2007 off the coast of Guam.

The South Korean Navy will hold a joint naval exercise with the United States involving three US aircraft carriers off the eastern coast on Sunday. They have been joined by several South Korean and Japanese warships during the exercise.

This comes after President Trump took a tough stance of North Korea's nuclear threat during his historic tour of Asia, saying his administration pursues - quote - "peace through strength".

The show of strength was meant to underline the United States administration's resolve to respond to North Korean provocation with possible military action as well as strengthened economic sanctions.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency said Saturday that the presence of the three carriers was part of Washington's "sinister intention to maintain military hegemony in the region".

Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have been sharply escalating in recent months with both sides indicating that they will not hesitate to engage in military action.

However, Pyongyangs state news agency accused the USA and South Korea of attempting to escalate tensions in the region.

"The opportunity to practice with two aircraft carriers at the same time is a rare one, and even rarer to have the capacity to practice with three", said US Pacific fleet Commander, Adm. Scott Swift.

"Nobody knows when and how the "war maniac" Trump will ignite the 'wick of war, '" the officials said, referring to the presence of the carriers near the peninsula.

"The large-scale nuclear war exercises and blackmails, which the USA staged for a whole year without a break in collaboration with its followers to stifle our republic, make one conclude that the option we have taken was the right one and we should go along the way to the last", Ja said.
