The Aegis combat system-equipped ships from the three countries have been seen carrying out the exercises in the waters off South Korea and Japan – just off North Korea’s border.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said the drills are designed to “prepare against growing nuclear and missile threats by North Korea”.

Although no missiles will be fired, the Armada will practice the detection and tracking of rockets fired from the hermit state.

It comes just a day after a source in the White House warned a failure to properly confront the nuclear threat posed by the hermit state will lead to a “darker era” in terms of the crisis.

Just last month, Kim Jong-un’s regime carried out its most powerful test to date – detonating a Hydrogen Bomb.

Japan has said the risk of an attack is now “imminent”, adding something must be done immediately to prevent World War 3 from erupting.

The country’s Defence Minister, Itsunori Onodera, said: “[The] threat posed by North Korea has grown to the unprecedented, critical and imminent level.

“Therefore, we have to take calibrated and different responses to meet with that level of threat.”
