The battle groups of the USS Ronald Reagan, the Theodore Roosevelt and the Nimitz will successively enter the exercise area during the drills that run until Tuesday, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

SEOUL-South Korea will join three US aircraft carrier strike groups in a joint drill scheduled for November 11 to 14, the South's military said on Friday.

The drills began in waters off South Korea's eastern coast.

On North Korea's nuclear and missile development issue, the two leaders agreed the need to stably manage the current security situation on the Korean Peninsula.

The US warships will carry out air defence drills, sea surveillance, defensive air combat training and other training operations, the US Navy said.

The exercises come on the heels of Trump's visits to Seoul and Beijing this week, which were dominated by the question of how to counter Pyongyang's nuclear weapons threat.

The United States has been sending its strategic assets, also including long-range bombers, to the region more frequently for patrols or drills amid accelerating North Korean efforts to expand its nuclear weapons program.

The presence of the three aircraft carriers in waters around the Korean Peninsula and the South China Sea, the East China Sea and the Philippine Sea, unnerved North Korea, who said the presence of USA strategic assets was the reason for the country needing a nuclear deterrent.

Xi said the two countries reiterated their "firm commitment" to the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and the implementation of United Nations resolutions.

"I am very glad to see you again after four months", Moon said at the start of their bilateral summit held on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders' Meeting here in the Vietnamese city.

Trump has embarked on a tour of Asia this week trying to rally regional support for curbing North Korea's nuclear weapons programme, warning that time is running out over the crisis.

The agreement is a positive move for relations in the region, however it is likely to spark a fire under North Korea dictator Kim Jong-Un - who viewed China as its only ally in his self-inflicted war of words with the South Korea "puppet force" and the US.
