Carrier strike group wasn't headed to Korean Peninsula, despite Trump's saber-rattling

"We are with you 100 percent", the visiting vice president said.

An "all-out war" would be the result of the continuing military tensions with the United States and warned North America about being "reckless enough to use military means".

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal last week, Trump said Xi told him during a recent summit that "Korea actually used to be a part of China".

Asked by a reporter what message he had for North Korea's young leader Kim Jong-Un on Monday, Trump replied "Gotta behave".

"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".

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley warned North Korea Wednesday not to "pick a fight" with the United States.

Earlier this month, a senior White House official told reporters that "the clock has now run out, and all options are on the table" with North Korea, according to a report by CNN.

The comments dash the hopes of Japanese policymakers, who have said they want to avoid use of the economic dialogue as a forum to discuss a bilateral FTA that may put them under USA pressure to open up highly-protected areas like agriculture.

With Donald Trump president, Tax Day has taken on a whole new meaning.

He said the Trump administration's deployment of the Carl Vinson nuclear carrier task group to waters off the Korean Peninsula again "proves the USA reckless moves for invading the DPRK have reached a serious phase of its scenario".

Pence also said that the U.S. would work with its allies and China to exert more economic and diplomatic pressure on the North and increase its military presence in the region.

Yet China still values the stability of the Korean Peninsula, upholding its stance against unilateral sanctions. China canceled North Korean coal shipments and pointedly declined last week to join Russian Federation in vetoing a US-sponsored resolution on Syria at the United Nations Security Council. Abe stressed the importance of a peaceful outcome but acknowledged a need to apply pressure so that Pyongyang would become open to dialogue.

Mattis did not identify the type of missile but said it was not of intercontinental range, meaning it could not reach USA territory.
