Timeline of administration's statements shows confusion about location of US aircraft carrier

But an image published by the Navy shows the aircraft carrier off the coast of Indonesia on Saturday, south of where the Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group had departed, not north.

However, a USA navy photo showed that the Carl Vinson was transiting the Sunda Strait on its way to drills with Australia on Saturday.

"The president said we have an armada going toward the peninsula", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.

The Vinson is accompanied by a destroyer ship with an Aegis combat system to track and intercept missiles.

A senior administration official was also quoted as telling CNN that it was because of a miscommunication.

"If China is unable to deal with North Korea, the United States and our allies will".

The Pentagon will conduct two major high-stakes tests in May of its ability to shoot down missiles launched out of North Korea . Tokyo - US President Donald Trump has hailed China for assisting the US in exerting pressure on North Korea .

A Trump administration official told Reuters on Tuesday that Washington was concerned about the possibility of some kind of North Korean provocation around the time of the South Korean election on May 9.

Mr Pence characterised North Korea as an "urgent and most unsafe threat" to peace and security in the Asia Pacific.

A fleet of warships President Donald Trump claimed he had deployed into waters near the Korean Peninsula were in fact heading in the opposite direction.

Two days after the announcement, North Korea expressed its fury at the USA carrier group's new orders, calling it "reckless acts of aggression".

"There's not a specific demand signal or specific reason why we're sending her up there", he said.

Spicer said "the statement that was put out was that the Carl Vinson Group was headed to the Korean Peninsula". It was moving away from North Korea when US officials said it was moving toward the peninsula, the Times confirmed on Tuesday.

North Korea remains technically at war with the South and the United States because the 1950-53 Korean War ended in an armistice and no peace treaty was signed.

That weekend, North Korea celebrated the Day of the Sun, an annual event commemorating the birth of the country's founder Kim Il Sung. Satellite imagery at the time indicated that Pyongyang might have been preparing for a sixth nuclear test in addition to a massive military parade.
