North Korea’s aggressive rhetoric has pushed the United States to reinforce its presence in the Western Pacific region.

Footage from the US Department of Defence shows three US aircraft carrier strike groups sailing through the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea as a warning to the unpredictable nation’s leader Kim Jong-un.

Three enormous aircraft carriers, the USS Ronald Reagan, USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Nimitz, are pictured alongside their strike forces and a range of fighter jets as the vessels patrol the seas off the North Korean coast.

In a statement, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said: “The US Navy mobilised three aircraft carriers and 11 Aegis destroyers, while the Republic of Korea Navy mobilised seven warships including two Aegis destroyers.”

North Korea’s supreme leader started a furious war of words with US President Donald Trump sparking fears of the possible outbreak of World War 3.

Engaged on his first tour of Asia, Mr Trump met with the region’s leaders in order to gather support to pressure North Korea in toning down its missile proliferation programme.

Mr Trump warned Kim Jong-un: “The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger.”

But despite the threatening tones, Mr Trump also said he would be open to pursuing a diplomatic resolution to resolve the dramatic situation.
