US 'sword stands ready', Mike Pence warns North Korea

US 'sword stands ready', Mike Pence warns North Korea

"The era of strategic patience is over", Mr Pence said. "Under President Donald Trump, I can promise you, the United States will drive growth like never before", he said.

But North Korea used Chinese-made trucks to display missiles at the military parade on Saturday, according to photographs, underlining the difficulty in enforcing United Nations sanctions.

Vice President Pence warned North Korea not to test President Trump during a press conference in South Korea on April 17, citing "the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan", as examples.

The Trump administration has signaled a more forceful US stance toward North Korea's recent missile tests and threats, including a warning from Trump that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has "gotta behave". He also met with American troops stationed at the joint U.S. -South Korean military camp, which is just outside the 2.5-mile (4.02-kilometer)-wide DMZ. Under rainfall, Pence later stood a few meters from the military demarcation line outside Freedom House, gazing at the North Korean soldiers across the border. "But dialogue for the sake of having dialogue is meaningless".

Pence's visit aboard the Reagan comes amid heightened concerns that North Korea will attempt a nuclear weapons test, which would be its sixth since 2006.

North Korea often violates United Nations resolutions and tensions have only increased since US President Donald Trump took office.

"This has created a situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment on the peninsula and posed a serious threat to world peace and security, to say nothing of those in Northeast Asia", he said.

(English-AP:4092047) "President Trump's plan is to slash the corporate tax rate and to reform the tax code and make it simpler, flatter and fairer".

"When the president says all options are on the table, all options are on the table", said Pence.

Mr Pence arrived in Tokyo from South Korea, where he assured leaders of an "iron-clad" alliance. Soon after Trump took office, he pulled the US out of the TPP - which needed all the signatory nations to ratify the deal.

In an interview with Fox News aired on Tuesday, Trump talked about his strong relations with Chinese President Xi Jinping and explained the reason behind dropping his past criticism of the Asian country.

He expressed deeply negative views of past negotiations with Pyongyang.

The officials weren't authorized to speak publicly on the results of the policy review and requested anonymity.

But it is the spectre of a real war, not the trade variety that haunts the vice-president's 10-day tour of Asia, which includes pit stops in Indonesia and Australia.

North Korea revealed new missiles during a large military parade in Pyongyang over the weekend to celebrate the 105th anniversary of founding leader Kim Il-sung.

"We want to see North Korea abandon its reckless path of the development of nuclear weapons, and also its continual use and testing of ballistic missiles is unacceptable".

"It's necessary to put pressure on North Korea so that it will accept dialogue in good faith", Mr Abe said.

The statements showed that disagreements with China remained even as the Trump administration sought help from Beijing in reining in North Korea, its neighbor and ally. The shipments may have been refused simply because China didn't need them.

And she added. "We've seen some tangible indications. that they're working towards this end, but it's still quite early".

Last week, President Trump said he was sending an "armada" to the Korean Peninsula as a show of force. Trump doesn't seem to know exactly who the leader of North Korea is - or have any grasp of how long he's been in power.

He noted it was "most concerning" that the United States trade deficit with South Korea has more than doubled since their bilateral trade pact came into effect, from US$13.2 billion in 2011 to US$27.6 billion previous year.

The term "reckless" is one the North Koreans have used to describe continuing large-scale USA and South Korean military exercises, which the North calls a dress rehearsal for an invasion.
