US working with allies to put pressure on North Korea, Pence says

Pence was addressing U.S. military personnel and guests including Japanese sailors on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, which is forward-deployed with the U.S. Seventh Fleet at the U.S. Navy base in Yokosuka, 40 miles south of Tokyo.

Pence heads for Indonesia later on Wednesday.

The coercive diplomatic operation the vice-president sketched relies on sustained cooperation.

The US played its own part in the tensions with surprise bombing action in Syria and Afghanistan, which Pence held up Wednesday as proof of US resolve.

"They have a pretty good power, not a great power perhaps, but a pretty good power over North Korea".

"In the past, the government's policy on defectors fluctuated, depending on the (political line of) the president", said the organization, which is presumed to be helping North Korean defectors.

He said that while "all options are on the table", Trump was determined to work with Japan, South Korea and other allies in Asia to resolve the problem. A nuclear-armed Japan is a Chinese nightmare.

About 47,000 United States troops are stationed in Japan and a further 28,000 are in South Korea. China knows Japanese and South Korean nuclear weapons would work. You protect the Senkakus, we're with you on North Korea. You read (Bill) Clinton's book and he said "Oh, we made such a great peace deal" and it was a joke.

The term "reckless" is one the North Koreans have used to describe continuing large-scale USA and South Korean military exercises, which the North calls a dress rehearsal for an invasion.

Shanghai, however, is also within range, as are Beijing, Manila, Hanoi and Russia's Vladivostok.

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.

During Saturday's military parade it displayed what appeared to be new intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Impoverished North Korea intends to project a global nuclear threat - which substantiates the charge that dictator Kim Jong Un is megalomaniacal.

Trump is clearly on the mind of the North Korean leadership. North Korea, on some level, must know this. That might get touchy. North Korea is moving steadily toward that goal, and some experts believe it could achieve it during Trump's presidency. Can the Trump Administration convince the Chinese navy will intercept blockade runners?

But the timing of the military exercises will have only added to the growing tensions in the area over North Korea's nuclear arsenal. It would tell disgruntled North Korean generals that the world has changed and it's time they terminated the Kim regime.
