North Korean military personnel are reportedly preparing for their winter training exercises as three United States aircraft carriers lurk near the Korean Peninsula in an unprecedented show of force by Washington's navy.

"But our military is keeping a full readiness posture against the possibility of North Korea's provocations", a South Korean official was quoted as saying by the Yonhap news agency.

Washington "is now running amok for war exercises by introducing nuclear war equipment in and around the Korean Peninsula, thereby proving that the USA itself is the major offender of the escalation of tension and undermining of the peace", the letter read.
