Mike Pence issues North Korea warning as 1200 marines ready for war

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visits at the border village of Panmunjom which has separated the two Koreas since the Korean War South Korea Monday

Abe told Pence of Japan's appreciation for U.S. President Donald Trump's stance that all options, including military action, are "on the table" to pressure North Korea to cease its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile development efforts.

On Monday U.S. Vice President Mike Pence put North Korea on notice, warning that recent U.S. strikes in Syria and Afghanistan showed that the Trump administration's resolve should not be tested.

US Vice-President Mike Pence, who has been visiting the region, warned the North not to test Washington and said the US "era of strategic patience" with Pyongyang was over.

"We should stay on our toes to protect our territory and people's lives", Hwang said.

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 United States pressure to open up highly-protected areas like agriculture.

"Any kind of action on North Korea will have repercussions on China", our correspondent said.

It's clear that North Korea is not backing down.

North Korean state media warned the United States of a "super-mighty preemptive strike" after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States was looking at ways to bring pressure to bear on North Korea over its nuclear program.

North Korea 'ready to hit back'
China quickly responded to the new jousting in the nuclear hotspot, saying there will be no victor in a war between the US and North Korea.

Asked for his statements on the failed missile test, U.S. President Donald Trump said, "They gotta behave".

North Korea's deputy representative to the United Nations, Kim In Ryong, accused the USA yesterday of creating "a situation where nuclear war could break out an any time".

Mattis denounced North Korea's attempted missile launch as he began a Middle East tour, telling reporters traveling with him to Saudi Arabia, "the leader of North Korea again recklessly tried to provoke something by launching a missile", he said.

He also said the USA will honor its alliance with Pacific Rim nations to protect freedom of navigation in the disputed South China Sea - most of which Beijing lays claim to, despite conflicting claims from other Asian nations.

North Korea has always been a threat to the USA and its Asian allies South Korea and Japan.

Chinese sanctions alone will not immediately force North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons, and Washington also must provide a security guarantee, the editorial said.

United States vice-president Mike Pence said his administration would not relent until it achieves its objective of ensuring the Korean Peninsula is free of nuclear weapons. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told reporters in Beijing on Monday that the Korean peninsula was "highly sensitive, complicated and high risk" and that all sides should "avoid taking provocative actions that pour oil on the fire".
