NKorean official says will continue missile tests

Pence's visit to the tense demilitarised zone dividing North and South Korea came at the start of a 10-day trip to Asia and underscored United States commitment to the region.

"As far as another nuclear test is concerned... it is something that our headquarters decided", Ryong added.

"If the USA dares opt for military action", North Korea is "ready to react to any mode of war desired by the United States", he said.

"We appreciate the challenging times in which the people of Japan live with increasing provocations from across the Sea of Japan", Pence said.

"The real obligation - the heaviest obligation - is on China because China is the nation that has the greatest leverage over North Korea", Mr Turnbull said. Kim also sharply criticized the United States and South Korea for staging "aggressive war exercises" on the Korean peninsula, which he said were the root causes of tension in the region.

"At the same time dialogue for the sake of dialogue is valueless and it is necessary for us to exercise pressure".

In Moscow, the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, told reporters on Monday that he hoped there would be "no unilateral actions like those we saw recently in Syria and that the USA will follow the line that President Trump repeatedly voiced during the election campaign".

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 cooperate with China to rein in North Korea.

Some economists have criticized the Trump administration's focus on trade deficits as a way of viewing US economic ties with the rest of the world.

However, changes in counting procedures "removed an important safeguard and were contested by the opposition", they said. Before the vote, critics had said creating a powerful presidency was an attempt by Erdogan to establish a "one-man rule".

Pence said Washington wants to achieve security "through peaceable means, through negotiations".

His comments followed an angry response to the hardening U.S. line on Pyongyang from North Korea's deputy ambassador to the United Nations, Kim In-ryong, who accused the USA of escalating tensions.

"If the United States dares opt for a military action (.) the DPRK is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the Americans", Kim told a news conference at UN headquarters in NY".

"We will take the toughest counteraction against the provocateurs". "They might also restate the case for keeping the idea of some sort of regional trade deal alive", he added. "But the US is troubled by China's economic retaliation against South Korea for taking appropriate steps to defend itself", he said, referring to the US THAAD missile defence system. Its latest missile test on Sunday failed a few seconds after launch.

During the press conference, Kim also answered questions about North Korea's recent missile tests, which have raised serious concerns among some of Pyongyang's neighbors. "But I am going to suspect that this was a new missile or certainly one that has not been well-developed".

Pence has firsthand knowledge of how beneficial Japanese investment can be.

As part of its efforts to avoid the manipulator label and a major renegotiation of its trade deal, South Korea has announced plans to import more energy products from the USA, while encouraging its companies to invest more in America.

"If we notice any sign of assault on our sovereignty, our army will launch merciless military strikes against the United States aggressors, wherever they may exist, from the remote USA lands to the American military bases on the Korean peninsula, such as those of Japan and elsewhere".
