Japan and Australia to deepen ties amid North Korea tension

Japan and Australia to deepen ties amid North Korea tension

Yoo's comments came after Vice President Pence took issue with the trade pact and market access for American companies in a speech at the American Chambers of Commerce in Seoul on Tuesday.

Last week, amid tensions with North Korea and the possibility that the North might conduct a nuclear or missile test, us officials, including the president, had suggested that the U.S.S. Carl Vinson was headed north, toward the Korean peninsula.

Mattis struck an even tougher tone on North Korea in an interview with reporters traveling with him to Saudi Arabia. We hope Japan will persevere in calling for the U.S.to return to the TPP, which would contribute to growth in the Asia-Pacific region as a whole. "But President Trump and I and our administration believes the most productive pathway forward is dialogue among the family of nations that can isolate and pressure North Korea into abandoning permanently and dismantling its nuclear weapons program and its ballistic missile program".

For more than a generation, North Korea's leaders have sought to develop nuclear weapons and the ballistic missiles on which to deliver them.

Through three American administrations, the USA and its allies had worked tirelessly to peacefully dismantle the nuclear program and alleviate the suffering of the North Korean people.

BBC rule out having a female Doctor Who after Peter Capaldi's exit
He said while playing the timelord was "a great job", the tight schedule and the intense workload were the root for his decision. Rumor had it the Tardis would finally see a woman step up to the iconic console.

Indonesia is officially secular and most of its 220 million Muslims practise a moderate form of Islam, although the country has some vocal Islamist groups and has suffered in the past from attacks by militants.

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

Pence said he had spoken with Trump and by 2020 some 60 percent of the US naval fleet would be in the region and Japan's role would grow. Pence is now on a 10-day trip in A.

Widodo's approach to foreign policy has been led more by economic interests than geopolitical considerations: he has pursued increased trade and investment from China, but keeps a diplomatic distance from Beijing and established a strategic partnership with Washington under former President Barack Obama.

"While all options are on the table", Pence said, "President Trump is determined to work closely with Japan, with South Korea, with all our allies in the region, and with China" to resolve the problem.

Election will 'strengthen our hand in negotiation,' Theresa May says this morning
An early ballot will give the prime minister - or her replacement - more time to implement Brexit before another election. May's governing Conservatives now have a slight majority, with 330 seats in the 650-seat House of Commons.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence has arrived in Japan for the second stop of a 10-day Asia tour.

His plane touched down Tuesday at the US military's Atsugi base outside Tokyo.

The focus of his trip is expected to shift in Japan to trade.

Despite North Korea's posturing, the Pentagon says the country's recent missile test failed and resulted in an explosion shortly after launch.

The White House foreign policy advisor said that Pence will also praise Widodo's "leadership on counter-terrorism".

How President Trump Has Changed His Tune on Global Deals
The administration said it has extended the sanctions relief to Iran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear programme. He had said in January 2016, after the deal was implemented, that "Iran will not get its hands on a nuclear bomb".

But Pence foreshadowed some reworking of commercial and economic ties, saying that the USA seeks a free and fair relationship that helps job creation and economic growth for both sides.
