Mike Pence: Working With Allies to Put Pressure on North Korea

21 April 2017, 01:41 | Taylor George

"It is our belief by bringing together the family of nations with diplomatic and economic pressure we have a chance of achieving a freeze on the Korean Peninsula", Pence said.

North Korea could react to a potential United States strike by targeting South Korea or Japan, and officials in both countries have been ill at ease with the more bellicose language deployed by President Donald Trump's administration.

Pence puts Japan on notice that Washington wants results "in the near future" from talks it hopes will open markets to US goods, adding that the dialogue could lead to negotiations on a two-way trade deal.

Pressure on North Korea is crucial, the prime minister said.

Pointing to Trump's recent military actions in Syria and Afghanistan, Pence said, "North Korea would do well not to test his resolve", or the US armed forces in the region.

"We would like to seek the best shape and forum for our bilateral relationship", Mr Pence said. Pence urged the business community to help "level that playing field" between Korea and the United States.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said China had taken some "very helpful" steps, although it remained to be seen how effective these would be.

Tensions on the peninsula have ratcheted up in recent weeks amid sabre-rattling from both the U.S. and North Korea.

Along with the deployment of the USA aircraft carrier and other vessels into waters off the Korean Peninsula, thousands of US and South Korean troops, tanks and other weaponry were deployed last month in their biggest joint military exercises.

Mattis did not identify the type of missile but said it was not of intercontinental range, meaning it could not reach USA territory. He did not comment on what might have caused the missile to fail.

James Kim, CEO of GM Korea, said there are opportunities to improve the free trade deal between Washington and Seoul.

The concerns were exacerbated after a North Korean missile exploded during launch on Sunday, U.S. and South Korean officials said.

A US official said Pyongyang's projectile "blew up nearly immediately" during an attempted launch off North Korea's east coast.

Behind the heated rhetoric, Trump's strategy in the region looks somewhat similar to predecessor Barack Obama's - albeit with the added unpredictability of a new president who has shown he's willing to use force.

"The regime is now developing intercontinental ballistic missiles which would be capable of delivering a nuclear strike on the mainland United States".

Trump congratulates Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on his referendum campaign in a phone call and vows close cooperation on Syria, Iraq and the fight against Kurdish militants, Turkish presidential sources say.

Susan Thornton, acting U.S. assistant secretary of state for East Asia, said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and China's top diplomat, State Councillor Yang Jiechi, agreed in a phone call on Sunday on the need for strict enforcement of United Nations resolutions and for global action to press Pyongyang "to cease provocative actions and recommit to peaceful denuclearisation". AP reporter Jonathan Lemire reported from NY.
