United States Vice President Mike Pence is making huge strides in taking care of the North Korea problem that is putting the whole world on edge.
North Korea has made a habit of regularly threatening to destroy Japan, South Korea, and the United States. It only makes sense for these three countries to team up and tackle the enemy.
Washington will be working with China and other allies to put an end to the trigger happy regime of Kim Jong-un.
By the year 2020, there are plans to move 60% of the United States navel fleet to the region. Japan would have a bigger role in controlling its unruly neighbor.
China is especially concerned with North Korea’s nuclear missile development. They are currently opposed to any actions that could possible provoke North Korea. Their stance is to avoid any course of action that could increase tensions.
Even though North Korea’s missile tests are failing time and time again, they show no falter in their belligerence towards its nemesis countries.
North Korea’s deputy representative to the United Nations, Kim In Ryong, accused the United States on Monday of creating “a situation where nuclear war could break out an any time” and said the North’s next nuclear test would take place “at a time and at a place where our headquarters deems necessary”.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said all parties should make efforts to resolve the situation.
“China expresses serious concern with recent trends about North Korea’s nuclear and missile development,” he said. The situation was tense and China was resolutely opposed to any words or actions that could further raise tension, he added. North Korea regularly threatens to destroy Japan, South Korea and the United States and it showed no let-up in its belligerence after the failed missile test on Sunday, a day after putting on a huge display of missiles at a parade in Pyongyang.
Pence also said the United States would protect freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea, where Beijing is entangled in territorial rows with several Southeast Asia nations. Pence heads for Indonesia later on Wednesday.
