"The Korean-American relationship is very important, and our visit to Chinhae gives us the opportunity to strengthen the outstanding relationship that exists between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea", he said.

US Navy units participating in the exercise include the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) and two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers - USS Stethem and USS Mustin.

South Korea sees that as an important measure of the US commitment to the longstanding alliance between the two allies who fought together in the 1950-53 Korean War.

The joint exercise will be conducted from next Monday to Friday in the eastern and western waters of South Korea, mobilizing the US aircraft carrier and its accompanying battleships including destroyers and guided missile cruisers.

The U.S. 7th Fleet on Thursday also announced that the ROK Navy and air force, in cooperation with the U.S.'s Seventh Fleet, Pacific Air Forces' 7th Air Force, and Eighth Army will stage combined joint operations and exercises.

The training is aimed at promoting "communications, interoperability, and partnership in the (US) 7th Fleet area of operations", the fleet said.

A Los Angeles-class attack submarine made a stop in the South Korean port of Jinhae, the U.S. Navy and South Korean officials confirmed Wednesday.

The deployment of USA bombers, submarines and aircraft carriers to the peninsula always infuriates the North, which considers it a sign of aggression and signal of preparations for an invasion.

The USS Tucson, based in Hawaii, is capable of anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface ship warfare, strike, surveillance and reconnaissance, Stars and Stripes reported.

It was the second port call of the USA submarine to the South Korean port city.

Washington has agreed to deploy so-called strategic assets in and around South Korea on a more regular basis to provide better deterrence against the North.

Two U.S. B-1B Lancer bombers flew over the Korean peninsula in a show of force on Tuesday night, conducting air-to-surface missile-firing drills over the Sea of Japan (known in Korea as the East Sea) and the Yellow Sea.
