Pence says USA to announce new, tough sanctions on North Korea

Speaking in Washington on Wednesday, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis did not rule out the possibility of Pence having contact with North Korea.

"We'll be telling the truth about North Korea at every stop", Pence told reporters after touring missile defense facilities Monday that monitor and could respond to a launch by the North.

Pence departed Monday for Alaska, Japan and South Korea, aiming to ensure North Korea does not "hijack" the games as it participates on a joint team with the South, in the view of the White House. "Those who dare raise their voices in dissent are imprisoned, tortured and even murdered, and their children and grandchildren are routinely punished for their family's sins against the state".

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe held talks with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who is visiting Japan.

The UNC troops at the border are quick to note they are not a peacekeeping force, and often go out of their way to tell of North Korean provocations. "Together with Japan, and all our allies, let the world know this: We will continue to intensify our maximum pressure campaign until North Korea takes concrete steps toward complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization".

Mr Moon has looked to the Olympics as an opportunity to pursue a diplomatic opening with the North after a year of heightened tensions over its nuclear and missile programmes. Pence emphasized the need for "free and fair trade".

Yet both he and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have conspicuously kept the door open to such an interaction, while simultaneously avoiding any suggestion that the USA was pushing or seeking to initiate one. They are expected to be implemented before the conclusion of the games.

South Korea is deciding whether to accept North Korea's request that it provide fuel for the ferry that transported the artists.

The U.N. committee monitoring sanctions against North Korea has proposed granting an exemption for Choe, who has been on the U.N. sanctions blacklist since June past year.

Mr Pence said that whatever the setting and whomever he meets, his message will be the same. But it would not be the first time Trump administration officials have sat face-to-face with North Korean diplomats.

The ceremony will also be attended by a senior delegation of North Korean officials, including the younger sister of leader Kim Jong Un and the North's nominal head of state, Kim Yong Nam. But he pledged that his message in any potential interaction would include the same message he has been delivering publicly: that the North renounce its nuclear weapon and missile programs.

Concern about North Korea is pushing Japan to update its missile defense. In Japan, he watched a military exercise involving the country's anti-missile systems and attended a Defence Ministry briefing. Pence reiterated Washington's stance that "all options are on the table" to deal with North Korea.

She was likely to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-In and give him a personal letter from her brother, expressing his hopes for a successful hosting of the Olympics and a desire to improve inter-Korean ties, he added.
