North Korea Slams President Trump

Speaking about North Korea, Trump accused the nation of defying pacts and said, "The North Korean regime has pursued its nuclear & ballistic missile programs in defiance of every assurance, agreement, & commitment it has made to the USA and its allies". Following his "lunatic remarks" made in September, Trump "made his conceived attempt yet again to alienate our people from the government and keep up rivalry between the DPRK and the worldwide society", the spokesman continued.

Three U.S. aircraft carriers joined an ongoing exercise with the South Korean Navy in the East Sea on Sunday in an unprecedented show of force against a provocative North Korea.

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.

Tensions over North Korea's weapons programme have surged in recent months, as Pyongyang carried out a sixth nuclear test - by far its largest to date - and test fired dozens of missiles, some capable of reaching the U.S. mainland.

It marks the first time that three USA aircraft carriers have joined together at close range for a joint exercise with South Korea, officials said.

Trump met with Japan and South Korea officials early last week.

The three carriers will be likely together in the drills around Monday, according to a South Korean military official, who didn't want to be named, citing office rules.

In a speech to South Korea's Parliament on Wednesday, Mr Trump warned Pyongyang not to underestimate the U.S., while offering leader Kim Jong Un a better future if he gives up his nuclear ambitions. The Aegis technology refers to missile tracking and guidance.

According to the U.S. Navy, it is the first three-carrier exercise in the Western Pacific since 2007.

The region, he added, must "stand united in declaring that every single step the North Korean regime takes toward more weapons is a step it takes into greater and greater danger".

Nuclear-armed North Korea regularly denounces such military drills as rehearsals for invasion and sometimes conducts its own military manoeuvres or missile tests in response.

"The U.S., under my administration, is completely rebuilding its military, and they're spending hundreds of billions of dollars to the newest and finest military equipment anywhere in the world, being built right now".

Trump threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea and also called Kim Jong-un as "Little Rocket Man", while North Korea denounced Trump as a "mentally deranged United States dotard".
