US VP Pence visits historic temple in Tokyo

20 April 2017, 05:20 | Myron Mathis

On April 14, US media said that US President Donald Trump might order a strike against North Korea in the event Pyongyang made a decision to carry out another nuclear weapon test.

The unannounced visit at the start of his 10-day trip to Asia was a US show of force that allowed the vice president to gaze at North Korean soldiers from afar and stare directly across a border marked by razor wire. North Korea has been conducting several nuclear tests and missile launches in contravention of UNO resolutions.

North Korea's Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations, Kim In Ryong, speaks during a news briefing on Monday, April 17, 2017, at U.N. headquarters.

About 47,000 U.S. troops are stationed in Japan and a further 28,000 are in South Korea.

At the time of a previous missile test by North Korea on April 5 USA satellites observed an increased activity in Sinpo. "China is unswerving in its commitment to realising the de-nuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, maintaining the peace and stability of the Korean peninsula, and continue to solve matters through dialogue and negotiations", said Lu.

During an interview with Fox & Friends, Mr Trump said: "I hope things work out well".

South Korea's acting president, Hwang Kyo-ahn, told a cabinet meeting on Tuesday that South Korea would strengthen its alliance with the United States and closely co-operate with China to rein in North Korea.


North Korea's failed missile test on Sunday provides an opportunity for the United States to press for more stringent sanctions and for China to demonstrate its willingness to curb Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions.

US Vice President Mike Pence and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe agreed on Tuesday that the two countries need to persuade China to play a larger role in dealing with North Korea, a Japanese government spokesman said.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow would not tolerate "missile adventures by Pyongyang" but a unilateral use of power by the USA would be "a very risky course".

North Korea has threatened to launch merciless military strikes against the USA after its failed attempt to launch a missile at the weekend.

Since President Donald Trump became the commander in chief, North Korea has ratcheted up its missile tests, along with its antagonistic rhetoric.

"If the U.S.is planning a military attack against us, we will react with a nuclear pre-emptive strike by our own style and method", Han said.

"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".
