US VP Pence assures Japan: America is with you '100 percent'
Pence, dressed in a green military jacket, said aboard the hulking USS Ronald Reagan that President Donald Trump's administration would continue to "work diligently" with allies like Japan, China and other global powers to apply economic and diplomatic pressure on Pyongyang. "We will see what happens!"
"So far, I think that what we see is that unpredictability can have the effect of at least inducing a temporary pause", Snyder said. "North Korea would do well not to test his resolve - or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region".
But officials at Pentagon are believed to be unsure how North Korea would respond if USA the shoots down a test missile.
And, in fact, China has let North Korean leader Kim Jong Un know that he has only two choices: continue your present path in pursuing a nuclear arsenal and face imminent death - or back off and preserve your cushy regime.
The North has said such launches are an act of deterrence against a potential invasion by the United States or South Korea.
On Wednesday, Pence said the Trump administration demands North Korea to abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programs - even if that entails no direct negotiations with the United States - according to The Washington Post.
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.
Pence said the North represents the most unsafe and most immediate threat in the Asia-Pacific and President Donald Trump is determined to confront that threat by marshaling unprecedented cooperation with allies in the region, China and the world. If they were, North Korea wouldn't have been able to conduct over the years five nuclear tests and a series of ballistic missile tests. "You read Clinton's book and he said, 'Oh, we made such a great peace deal, ' and it was a joke", Trump said in an interview on Fox & Friends that aired Tuesday.
In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi made a new appeal Tuesday for calm on the Korean Peninsula.
"I hope there's going to be peace", Trump said. "Solve the problem in North Korea". He said on Twitter that talks would be "difficult" due to US manufacturing job losses he blames on the world's second-largest economy and the growing trade deficit between the countries.
"The U.S. has been clear that we want to resolve this issue through the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", she added. Trump campaigned on an "America first" platform, and has vowed to narrow big trade deficits with nations such as China and Japan.
Seoul, the South Korean capital, is just a stone's throw away from the military demarcation line that splits the Korean peninsula and is within easy range of North Korean long-range artillery.
Putting aside whether a sitting president should have some basic understanding of these details, has no one at the White House explained any of this to Trump?
