Korea says it will join United States aircraft carrier drill November 11-14

Dozens of anti Trump protesters gathered in Seoul to protest against Mr Trump's visit to South Korea

The USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier arrives in the South Korean port city of Busan on October 21, 2017.

The United States and South Korea began joint naval exercises Saturday involving three USA aircraft carriers, in what military officials describe as a clear warning to North Korea.

The drill is also in response to North Korean nuclear and missile provocations, the South's military said, and to show any such developments by Pyongyang can be repelled with "overwhelming force".

The US warships will carry out air defence drills, sea surveillance, defensive air combat training and other training operations, the US Navy said.

After President Donald Trump described his strategy on containing North Korea as "peace through strength", Rodong Sinmun newspaper, the North Korean ruling party's mouthpiece, published an article on Friday protesting the drills and vowing to "defend peace until the end".

China hit the jackpot in three major ways in its recent agreement to mend ties with South Korea over the latter's deployment of a US THAAD antimissile system, according to 38 North, a respected specialist website on North Korea.

At a summit in Seoul Tuesday, Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In agreed to increase the deployment of USA military assets around the Korean peninsula to step up pressure on the North.

During the meeting on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders' Meeting, Xi reiterated China's stance on the issue of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD).

Bong Young-shik, an expert on regional relations at South Korea's Yonsei University, said: "China's economic retaliation only pushed Korea closer into the trilateral alliance between Japan and the US".

The United States has been sending its strategic assets, also including long-range bombers, to the region more frequently for patrols or drills amid accelerating North Korean efforts to expand its nuclear weapons program.

During talks in Beijing Thursday, Trump urged Chinese leader Xi Jinping to work hard and act fast to help resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis, warning that "time is quickly running out".
