Pence says United States to expand military alliance with Japan

Pence says United States to expand military alliance with Japan

Pence's comments come after a senior North Korean official warned the regime had no intention of dialling down its missile programme, pledging weekly tests and threatening "all-out war" if the United States took any action against it.

North Korea's vice-foreign minister told the BBC Pyongyang would continue to test missiles and would launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike if it thought the United States was planning an attack.

Mr Pence also insisted that the long standing USA commitment to South Korea against the North was "iron clad".

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

North Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol told the BBC that missiles would be tested on "a weekly, monthly and yearly basis".

Finance Minister D Jayakumar, who attended the meeting, said, "Sasikala's family will be delinked from the party's affairs". He had put a condition that the merger will only happen if Sasikala and her family is ousted from the party.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has said he would expand America's nuclear arsenal to ensure it is at the "top of the pack" amid a heated war of words between the U.S. and North Korea.

North Korea attempted yet another missile test over the weekend, despite the heavy US military presence in the region.

At the outset of his meeting with Abe, Pence said that "While all options are on the table", Trump was determined to work with Japan, South Korea and other allies in the region to resolve the problem. You look at different things over the years with President Obama. "I think that the relationship that the president started building with President Xi down in Mar-a-Lago is clearly showing some positive signs".

Also on Monday, Vice President Mike Pence cautioned Pyongyang that "the era of strategic patience is over". "President Trump has made it clear the USA will pursue an America first policy in trade and exchange".

Mr Pence told reporters the North Korean people and military "should not mistake the resolve of the United States of America to stand with our allies".

Trump campaigned for office on an "America First" platform, saying he would boost US manufacturing jobs and shrink the country's trade deficit with countries like Japan.

Pence's economic discussions in Tokyo will be closely watched to see how hard a line Washington is prepared to take on trade.

Experts say the North may soon carry out its sixth nuclear test.

He said he values the Trump administration's policy against North Korea. The term "reckless" is one the North Koreans have used to describe ongoing large-scale USA and South Korean military exercises, which the North calls a dress rehearsal for an invasion.

Thornton said any new North Korean nuclear test "would draw a pretty significant global response". Beijing banned all coal imports from North Korea in February and more recently, Air China stopped flights between Beijing and Pyongyang. In a report by CNN, defense officials revealed that the failed missiles test occurred in Sinpo, a port area in the eastern North Korea.
