Trump seems confused about who is in charge of North Korea

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence arrives at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone which has separated the two Koreas since the Korean War South Korea Monday

Abe and Pence affirmed that their countries will continue to share information as allies, but there was no specific mention of the United States consulting Japan before taking serious action on North Korea, the official said.

Late Monday, Pence reiterated in a joint statement alongside South Korean Acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn that "all options are on the table" and said any use of nuclear weapons by Pyongyang would be met with "an overwhelming and effective response".

Tensions on the peninsula have ratcheted up in recent weeks amid saber-rattling from the U.S. and North Korea and analysts' warnings that North Korea is preparing for a sixth nuclear test. Trump administration officials in recent days have said the Obama administration's strategy of "strategic patience" is over.

However, US President Donald Trump made a decision to pull out of the deal, saying it was bad for American workers.

The unannounced visit at the start of his 10-day trip to Asia was a US show of force that allowed the vice president to gaze at North Korean soldiers from afar and stare directly across a border marked by razor wire.

The Trump administration is hoping that China will help rein in North Korea in exchange for other considerations. He also added that an "all-out war" would result if the USA took military action against the country.

Mr Pence arrived in Seoul on Sunday hours after North Korea carried out a failed missile launch.

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

Showers and Storms Return Tonight and Tomorrow
Sunday , Mother's Day, will be a warm and breezy day with highs in the mid 80s with south winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour . We'll have a north wind this evening under 8 miles per hour with temperatures dipping to the mid 50s tonight .

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.

He said: '(Mr Trump) holds his cards close to the vest.

Ms Bishop also repeated Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's call for China to increase diplomatic and economic pressure on North Korea.

Yesterday, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence warned North Korea not to test the strength of the U.S. military and the resolve of President Donald Trump. The U.S. now has about 30,000 American troops stationed in neighboring South Korea, with frequent American military exercises' occurring in the surrounding area.

"There has been heightened tension between the USA, the Republic of Korea and the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea".

He said the U.S. 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".

The U.S. cruise missile strike against a Syrian air base on April 6 and the bombing on April 13 of an Islamic State target in Afghanistan with a Massive Ordnance Air Blast weapon were no doubt intended in part to warn the Kim regime that U.S. patience is running out.
