VP Pence issues another warning to North Korea over failed missile test

20 April 2017, 07:13 | Myron Mathis

But North Korea's deputy Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol said Pyongyang would continue to test missiles "on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis".

Donald Trump has warned North Korea it has "gotta behave" as the U.S. agreed to the early deployment of a missile defence system in the region.

In response, Abe called for the need to pressure North Korea to engage in dialogue. Pence's trip will also include stops in Indonesia, Australia and a visit with USA troops in Hawaii.

North Korea regularly threatens to destroy the United States and amid heightened tension on the Korean peninsula, it has escalated a war of words, warning of full-out nuclear war if Washington takes military action against it. The US has promised to meet any North Korean attack with an "overwhelming response". His national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, said the US would rely on its allies as well as Chinese leadership to resolve the issues with North Korea.

Trump prides himself on giving dismissive nicknames to opponents, but Colbert noted he has repeatedly called North Korea's leader "this gentleman" in interviews.

Yet US threats to take unilateral action have rattled Chinese leaders, pushing them to pursue a tougher line against their neighbour, including suspending coal imports from the country for the remainder of the year.

According to the office of the Russian envoy to the United Nations, there was indeed disagreement over the draft statement, because the USA had failed to mention "dialogue" as the path towards settling the conflict over the North Korean missile program.


A fresh United States warning to North Korea and the Chinese government's description of the situation in the Korean peninsula as sensitive and fraught with risk show that the explosive situation that has developed there in the last few days continues without abatement.

The United States and Russian Federation clashed at the United Nations on Wednesday over a USA -drafted Security Council statement to condemn North Korea's latest failed ballistic missile test.

"It is a matter of paramount importance for us to seek diplomatic efforts as well as peaceable settlements of the issue", he 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'. Council members can also "recommit to implementing all existing and future sanctions to maximize pressure on the DPRK to return to meaningful negotiations on denuclearization", the paper says.

On April 9 North Korea attempted to launch a new test missile.

Mr. Trump, in contrast to his three predecessors who wrestled with the Korean problem, has made an appropriately emphatic point that the developing threat is unacceptable.

It's easy to laugh at the gaffe, but Trump's ignorance about the leadership of one of the most risky nations on earth is deeply worrying given that tensions between the USA and North Korea are increasing by the day.
