The four-day joint naval exercises by the USA and South Korea, which began Saturday in waters off the South's eastern coast, were described by military officials as a clear warning to North Korea. Said he wants them to denuclearize.

"Currently, the North Korean troops are conducting ordinary field exercises".

Seoul's military said in a statement that the exercises aim to enhance the combined US and South Korean operational and aerial strike capabilities and to display "strong will and firm military readiness to defeat any provocation by North Korea with dominant force in the event of crisis".

North Korea's military is beginning winter drills.

South Korea and the United States were also conducting joint military drills in the East Sea utilizing three USA aircraft carriers.

So, as the president finishes the last leg of his Asia trip, he chose to take to Twitter and bash North Korean Kim Jong-un "short and fat".

US President Donald Trump has praised Vietnamese growth and plugged US business at a press conference with Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang on a state visit to Hanoi.

Though an armistice ceased fighting in that conflict, no peace treaty has ever been signed, and North Korea still tensely face off with South Korean and USA forces at the demilitarized zone that splits the Korean peninsula at the 38th parallel.

"Trump has flown to South Korea as he seeks to strengthen military threats against us and has an intention to light the fuse for a nuclear war", North Korean newspaper Rodong Sinmum said. The USS Ronald Reagan is the largest USA warship in Asia.

As part of his continuing tour of Asia, Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull Monday in Manila to discuss the situation in North Korea.

It comes days after Trump left Seoul, where he offered a lengthy, detailed critique of North Korea's human rights abuses and nuclear ambitions.
