Pence warns NKorea 'era of strategic patience is over'

During the performance, North Korea also unveiled a song about the country's artillery unit in charge of ballistic missile launches. It is his first trip to Asia as vice president.

"If the United States is reckless enough to use military means, it would mean from that very day an all-out war", Han said.

"We're looking for some kind of signal that they realise the current status quo is unsustainable", she said.

But Pence expressed impatience with the unwillingness of the regime to move toward ridding itself of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

Japan and the US have outlined a path forward for economic talks between the countries.

But Trump has taken a more conciliatory tone since meeting with Abe in February at the president's Florida resort. Speaking to reporters, Pence said: "It is our belief by bringing together the family of nations with diplomatic and economic pressure we have a chance of achieving a freeze on the Korean Peninsula".

"Today we are beginning a process of economic dialogue, the end of which may result in bilateral trade negotiations in the future", Pence told a news conference with Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso, his counterpart at Tuesday's talks.

"It's a little bit early to say just what forms things will take, but we are certainly eager to increase our trade relationships with Japan, and to do so in the form of an agreement", Ross said when asked about a possible free trade pact.

North Korea displays submarine-based missiles for first time at military parade

In preliminary meetings Tuesday, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross sat down with Japan's trade minister, Hiroshige Seko.

The United States will enhance its military presence in the Asia Pacific region amid growing threat emanating from North Korea, US Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday.

A USA official said the projectile "blew up nearly immediately", adding the type of missile North Korea was testing was still being assessed.

Meanwhile, US vice president Mike Pence warned North Korea not to test the resolve of America's military, promising it would make an "overwhelming and effective" response to any use of conventional or nuclear weapons.

His plane touched down Tuesday at the US military's Atsugi base outside Tokyo. If the USA can't effectively shoot down North Korea's test missiles, it could embolden Kim Jong-un's regime.

"We're reviewing all of our trade agreements across the world to ensure that they benefit our economy as much as they benefit our trading partners", Pence told the American Chamber of Commerce in Korea.

Footage of what appeared to be a new intermediate-range ballistic missile being fired and the missile crossing the Pacific and hitting an unidentified city of the US was shown on a giant screen at the performance hall, according to the state-run TV station.
