“This is the first time when three carrier-based strike groups take part in naval exercises with South Korea,” the report says. The KNS also added that the purpose of large-scale maneuvers is “demonstration of force to contain” the North Korea.

The tension on the Korean peninsula has escalated because of the active development of the North Korean missile and nuclear programs, as well as military maneuvers of the United States and its allies in the region.

In July, North Korea twice tested its ballistic missiles, on August 29 and September 15, and carried out two more rocket launches which flew over the territory of Japan. The UN Security Council implemented stiff sanctions on North Korea, while the US is pressing China to do more to squeeze North Korea.
