Pence: US won't rest until N. Korea gives up nuclear weapons

Trump: China, US working on 'North Korea problem'

In a sign of Beijing's hardening attitude, the Global Times, a state-run tabloid, said in an editorial on Monday that China could enforce "stricter measures" against North Korea, including a ban on oil exports, or join a USA -led effort to block the North's access to worldwide financial markets.

Pence reiterated that after years of North Korea testing the USA and its neighbors in East Asia with its nuclear ambitions, the US "era of strategic patience is over".

Americans "always have to be concerned" about the prospect of a thermonuclear war with North Korea, Donald Trump has said.

An "all-out war" would be the result of the continuing military tensions with the United States and warned North America about being "reckless enough to use military means". He did not comment on what might have caused the missile to fail. Pressure on North Korea is crucial, the prime minister said. You read (Bill) Clinton's book and he said "Oh, we made such a great peace deal" and it was a joke.

"We appreciate the challenging time in which the people of Japan live with increasing provocation across the Sea of Japan", Pence said in Tokyo before a lunch with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The American-Chinese effort seeks to "get this under control and aim for the denuclearised Korean peninsula" desired by China, the US, South Korea and Japan, he said as he flew to the Middle East for a tour.

"We'll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis", North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol was quoted as saying to BBC Tuesday.

This changes that, or so Google says, with Treble being its "biggest change yet to low-level system architecture". Project Treble lets device manufacturers focus only on the parts of Android that affect their phones.

The recent surge in tensions on the Korean Peninsula finds Beijing on the outs with both North and South Korea, while many critics have yet to be convinced by its insistence that its influence with Pyongyang has been exaggerated. However, the United States is in the first phase of deploying the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense anti-ballistic missile system-THAAD-in South Korea.

North Korea declared itself a nuclear power in 2005.

Pence told reporters near the Demilitarized Zone on Monday that Trump was hopeful China would use its "extraordinary levers" to pressure the North to abandon its weapons program, a day after the North's failed missile test launch. During the large scale military parade new missiles and military hardware were wheeled out in front of the North Korean public "in a show of military strength", according to US today.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said China had taken some "very helpful" steps, although it remained to be seen how effective these would be. North Korea's goal appears to be to impress the world with its nuclear prowess and pressure Washington into direct talks.

Sin also said six-nation talks aiming to make the Korean Peninsula free of nuclear weapons were "throttled at birth".

He said the USA was "disturbing global peace and stability and insisting on the gangster-like logic that its invasion of a sovereign state is decisive and just and proportionate and contributes to defending the worldwide order". Our nuclear weapons protect us from that threat.
