U.S Vice President Mike Pence has warned North Korea to be careful with how they provoke U.S President Donald Trump or the military power at his disposal, as recent strikes in Afghanistan and Syria show that America will act when necessary on unruly nations/governments.
“We will defeat any attack and we will meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective response,” Pence said, adding that when it came to North Korea “all options are on the table. Washington would closely consult with Seoul as we make decisions moving forward.”
‘President Trump is very hopeful that China will take actions to bring about a change of policy in North Korea. An abandonment of its nuclear weapons program and its ballistic missile program. Washington is troubled by China’s economic retaliation against South Korea (for) taking appropriate measures to defend itself by deploying the US THAAD missile defense system.’
