"There's no question North Korea represents the most risky and most immediate threat in the Asia-Pacific and President Trump is determined to confront that threat by marshaling unprecedented cooperation with allies in the region and China and the world", Pence said.

However, he also said the US will "continue to work diligently" with Japan, China and other allies in the region to "bring economic and diplomatic pressure to bear on" North Korea.
