The South China Morning Post quoted military officials describing this as a clear warning to North Korea, which involve three U.S. aircraft carriers.

Also on Saturday, the US and South Korean navies launched four days of joint drills off the east coast of South Korea.

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

Three U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strike groups are scheduled to conduct joint drills with the Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) over the next few days in a show of force against North Korea, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said on Friday.

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.

A US lawmaker has submitted a resolution to the House of Representatives calling on both South Korea and the U.S.to send a clear message to North Korea over its nuclear weapons program.

The exercises will also involve 11 U.S. Aegis ships and seven South Korean naval vessels, including two Aegis ships.

"The participating forces of the two nations plan to enhance combined operation capability and interoperability through aircraft carrier escort operation, aviation operation and aerial firing", said the JCS.

It's the first time since 2007 that three USA carrier strike groups are operating together in the Western Pacific.

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) submitted the text to the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Ways and Means Committee Thursday after President Donald Trump's state visit to Seoul earlier this week.

"The U.S. efforts to expand its military influence in Asia-Pacific and the movement of big neighboring powers to contain it escalate the military tension and increase arms race in the region with each passing day", it said.

Yonhap said the three aircraft carriers will enter the KTO one by one as the strike groups sail with a certain distance from each other.

Trump said in a speech at South Korea's parliament Wednesday, "Currently stationed in the vicinity of this peninsula are the three largest aircraft carriers in the world loaded to the maximum with magnificent F-35 and F-18 fighter jets".

It has repeatedly threatened to launch ballistic missiles into the waters around the US territory of Guam.
