South Korea and America have taken part in joint military drills as cooperation between the two allies steps up amid tensions with Kim Jong-un.

The USS Carter Hall, a dock-landing vessel, and South Korean destroyer Choe Yeong were pictured on manoeuvres together in the Gulf of Aden on Friday.

They were joined by the British frigate HMS Monmouth and Japanese destroyer Teruzuki to take part in the anti-piracy drills.

While the exercises do not relate directly to North Korea, cooperation between Western and East Asian allies will be sure to draw the attention of Kim’s regime as he squares off with Donald Trump over the country’s nuclear program.
