Three U.S. aircraft carrier strike groups now converged near South Korea will kick off a rare four-day exercise in the Western Pacific on Saturday as U.S. President Donald Trump tours Asia.
On his Asia tour, Trump has been shoring up the US' alliance with key American allies in the region such as South Korea and Japan as they jointly ramp up efforts against North Korea to scale down its nuclear and missile programmes.
