YOKOSUKA/November 8, 2017 (NNS)(STL.News) - The USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), USS Nimitz (CVN 68) and USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) strike groups will commence a three-carrier strike force exercise in the Western Pacific, Nov. 11-14.
The units that have been assigned the strike force will conduct coordinated operations in global waters to demonstrate the United States Navy's unique potential to operate multiple carrier strike groups as a coordinated strike force effort, according to the official website of the Commander, U.S. 7 Fleet.
This will be the first time since 2007 that three carrier strike groups operate together in the Western Pacific.
Three aircraft carriers will conduct a rare exercise in the Pacific.
Three United States aircraft carriers are set to perform rare drills starting Saturday in the Western Pacific, in the midst of the North Korean crisis, and coinciding with the Asia tour of the American president, the US Navy said Thursday.
He said of the North Korean threats to strike the USA and its allies, "That would be a fatal miscalculation".
Both exercises focused on the ability to rapidly bring together forces from three strike groups in response to any regional situation, the navy said.
Trump also noted that the three USA aircraft carriers "are appropriately positioned" near the Korean Peninsula.

The statement did not rule out North Korea, who previously threatened to fire ballistic missiles off Guam, an American island in the Western Pacific, which hosts strategic US military bases.
The exercise announcement comes as President Donald Trump arrived in China to discuss North Korea's nuclear and missile program.
North Korea will be at the top of the agenda as Trump tries to pressure Beijing into cracking down on Pyongyang. "As long as the USA and its followers continue their hostile acts against us, we will further bolster our nuclear, precious sword of justice", said a dispatch carried by the North Korean daily Rodong Sinmun shortly ahead of Trump's arrival.
China is one of North Korea's only allies.
The CIA has said North Korea could be only months away from developing the ability to hit the United States with nuclear weapons, a scenario Trump has vowed to prevent.
