Pence on Monday had traveled to the tense zone dividing North and South Korea, where he warned North Korea's leaders that after years of testing the USA and South Korea with its nuclear ambitions, "the era of strategic patience is over".

The country's deputy foreign minister, Han Song-Ryol, told the BBC that Pyongyang would continue to test missiles "on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis".

"The alliance between the United States and Japan is the cornerstone of peace and security in Northeast Asia", he told Abe.

Mattis did not identify the type of missile but said it was not of intercontinental range, meaning it could not reach us territory.

Despite the tension, North Korea may carry out a sixth nuclear test soon, observers say.
