Do Not Test Trump Or Strength Of US Forces, VP Pence Warns Kim Jong Un

US Vice President Mike Pence warned North Korea
Monday not to test Donald Trump’s resolve,
declaring that “all options are on the table” in
curbing its missile and nuclear weapons
programmes. Defying international pressure, the North Sunday
test-fired another missile as fears grow that it may
be preparing for its sixth atomic weapons test. “We hope to achieve this objective (the North’s
denuclearisation) through peaceful means but all
options are on the table,” Pence told a press
conference in the South Korean capital after a trip
to the tense border with the North. Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump “Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed
the strength and resolve of our new president in
actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan. “North Korea would do well not to test his resolve,
or the strength of the armed forces of the United
States in this region,” Pence said at the press
conference with South Korea’s Acting President
Hwang Kyo-Ahn. Tensions between Pyongyang and Washington
have soared in recent weeks, as a series of North
Korean missile tests have prompted ever-more
bellicose warnings from Trump’s administration. The new and inexperienced US president has
indicated he will not allow North Korea to develop
an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of
delivering a nuclear warhead to the western
United States.
