N. Korea blasts Trump's 'warmonger' Asia tour
During Mr Trump's visit to Beijing last week Mr Xi said China would push for the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, but did not confirm whether it would oppose North Korea. The USS Ronald Reagan is the largest USA warship in Asia.
"We are enthusiastic about economic reforms that promote economic prosperity for all Vietnamese citizens as we look to your growing middle class as a key market for American goods and services", said Trump, adding that he would welcome Vietnam's elimination of trade barriers.
In a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, seen by Reuters, North Korean UN Ambassador Ja Song Nam said the United States was "running amok for war exercises by introducing nuclear war equipment in and around the Korean Peninsula".
Tensions have been running high since North Korea test-fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July, conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3 and flew ballistic missiles over Japan on August 29 and September 15. It has also threatened to explode another nuclear bomb above the Pacific Ocean.
Pyongyang's drills are expected to begin in December and are likely to proceed till April, while the South Korean military keeps a close watch on all the developments in the region.
Meanwhile, three USA aircraft carriers - the USS Ronald Reagan, USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Nimitz - sailed off the Korean Peninsula on Monday in a massive show of force against Kim Jong Un's regime as part four days of drills that end Tuesday. "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea".
"Multiple carrier strike force operations are very complex, and this exercise in the Western Pacific is a strong testament to the US Pacific Fleet's unique ability and ironclad commitment to the continued security and stability of the region", Adm. Scott Swift, the commander of the US Pacific Fleet, said in a statement.
Trump's jab appears to be his response to Jong Un referring to the President as a "dotard" who "begged for nuclear war" during his tour of Asia. which he's still on. He said the exercises raise serious concern about "the double standard" of the UN's most powerful body.
