The battle groups of the USS Ronald Reagan, the Theodore Roosevelt and the Nimitz will successively enter the exercise area during the drills that run until Tuesday, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

It comes on the same day Rodong Sinmun, the regime-run newspaper, warned the North would "surely win in the showdown" with the USA and South Korea.

The four-day drills that began in waters off South Korea's eastern coast come as President Donald Trump continues a visit to Asia that has been dominated by discussions over the North Korean nuclear threat.

It is the first such United States triple-carrier drill in the region for a decade.

"Together we have in our power to finally liberate this region and the world from this very serious nuclear menace, but it will require collective action, collective strength and collective devotion to winning the peace", Trump said.

This isn't the first time Trump and Kim have traded barbs.

North Korea has conducted dozens of ballistic missile tests in defiance of United Nations sanctions.

President Donald Trump fired back at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Twitter Sunday by sarcastically saying that he would never call him "short and fat" after the dictator said that Trump was an "old" person.

After North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho addressed the U.N. General Assembly in September Trump tweeted: "Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!"

In a commentary released Saturday, the Korean Central News Agency, North Korea's official media, criticized the United States for "heightening military tension in the Asia-Pacific region".

Trump sent out the tweet after he attended the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam. This isn't the first time North Korea have employed the 14th century term to insult Trump, with "dotard" sprinkled across a statement in September which ended: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire".

Earlier, Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Trump reiterated firm commitment to achieving denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and working towards a solution through dialogue and negotiation.

But experts doubt China will take the kind of steps that Trump wants, such as halting crude oil exports to the North.
