Pence says US stands by ally Japan on North Korea problem

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visits at the border village of Panmunjom which has separated the two Koreas since the Korean War South Korea Monday

The U.S. has been in discussion with China - North Korea's main ally - in attempts to apply pressure on North Korea's leadership to restrain their nuclear ambitions.

After referencing Pence's trip, Earhardt asked Trump whether he has ruled out a military strike against North Korea.

President Donald Trump in Washington and Pence at the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea have signaled a forceful US stance on North Korea's recent actions.

Kim reportedly added that the Trump administration's deployment of the Carl Vinson Strike Group, which is expected to arrive in South Korea's East Sea next Tuesday, proves that the United States intends to invade the North.

Speaking to reporters at his Bowling Green office Monday, Paul said China has tremendous leverage with Pyongyang given North Korea's economic woes.

The term "reckless" is one the North Koreans have used to describe continuing large-scale United States and South Korean military exercises, which the North calls a dress rehearsal for an invasion. Is China going to cooperate with the United States of America to contain North Korea?

Asked how anxious Americans should be about the prospect of nuclear war, Mr Trump told U.S. news channel TMJ4: "Look, you always have to be concerned".

US Vice President Mike Pence (L) talks with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

At the outset of his meeting with Mr Abe, Mr Pence said that "while all options are on the table", Washington was determined to work with Japan, South Korea and other allies in the region to resolve the problem.

But North Korea's deputy Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol said Pyongyang would continue to test missiles "on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis".

For the past quarter century, the United States and South Korea have tried to convince North Korea to abandon its nuclear aspirations.

China is seriously concerned about the latest developments in the nuclear and missile programmes of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK), Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said.

The US and South Korea have activated the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence system, which is capable of intercepting incoming warheads from North Korea.

"It shows why we are working so closely right now with the Chinese.to try to get this under control and aim for the denuclearised Korean peninsula", he said. During the large scale military parade new missiles and military hardware were wheeled out in front of the North Korean public "in a show of military strength", according to U.S. today.

Trump justified the launching of 59 Tomahawk missiles on the Shayrat airbase in Syria as a response to a chemical attack which he blamed on President Bashar al-Assad' s government, without providing any evidence. But Pence expressed impatience with the unwillingness of the North to move toward ridding itself of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

Yesterday, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence warned North Korea not to test the strength of the U.S. military and the resolve of President Donald Trump.

"We would like to seek the best shape and forum for our bilateral relationship", Pence said. Our nuclear weapons protect us from that threat.
