Instead, the USS Nimitz (CVN 68), the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71), and the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) will be "deployed rotationally and sequentially" to carry out joint exercises with warships from the ROKN.

Secondly, the quickening relations between China and South Korea creates a better political environment to deal with the current nuclear crisis with North Korea.

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.

The joint military drills of South Korea and the United States involving three aircraft carrier strike groups begin in the Western Pacific on Saturday.

The deployment of the three nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in the region comes amid a visit by U.S. President Donald Trump to Asia.

The leaders also agreed to continue their discussions next month when the South Korean president will make a trip to China for their third bilateral summit, according to Cheong Wa Dae.

APEC brings together 21 economies from the Pacific region.

The leaders of South Korea and China on Saturday reaffirmed their joint efforts to peacefully resolve North Korea's nuclear problem in a summit highlighting the recent normalization of bilateral ties estranged by the deployment of a US missile defense system in South Korea.

President Trump is now on a tour of Asia that has taken him to Japan, South Korea and China so far.

"The future of this region and its handsome people must not be held hostage to a dictator's twisted fantasies of violent conquest and nuclear blackmail", he said during a speech in Vietnam at the annual Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.

China insists on peaceful denuclearization of North Korea.

Now, a meeting between Chinese president Xi Jinping and his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in appears to have strengthened relations between the countries.

Though China has backed United Nations sanctions, U.S. officials want Chinese authorities to clamp down on unauthorised trade along the North Korean border.
