Japan seeks to salvage TPP after US withdrawal from trade deal

According to the report, the military might attempt a missile shoot-down with an Aegis missile-defense system aboard a USA navy destroyer. Mr Lu added that tension was already high in the region before the latest comments from Pyongyang. He spoke after heated rhetoric from both sides.

Pence arrived in Tokyo on Tuesday from South Korea where he started his 10-day trip to Asia on Sunday hours after the North Korean missile test.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres separately said "everything" must be done to confront the threat from North Korea and ensure that its missile and nuclear programs do not pose an global threat.

Meanwhile a report in the Guardian newspaper quoted unnamed officials as saying the United States was considering shooting down North Korean missile tests as a show of strength. During the large scale military parade new missiles and military hardware were wheeled out in front of the North Korean public "in a show of military strength", according to United States of America today. Whereas one carrier is barely sufficient to combat the North Korean military, three will provide overwhelming firepower.

Trump's administration has appeared to guide USA policy toward a more hawkish stance against North Korea since it assumed office in January, at least partly in response to the socialist regime's continued military tests. North Korea has been conducting several nuclear tests and missile launches in contravention of UNO resolutions.

"American officials did make some positive and constructive remarks. such as using whatever peaceful means possible to resolve the (Korean) Peninsula nuclear issue". In the middle of him talking with North Korea I'm going to hit them with currency manipulation?

How did we get here?

Russian Federation on Wednesday blocked UN Security Council condemnation of North Korea's latest missile test even though China had backed the strongly-worded statement put forward by the United States, diplomats said.

The North, which is intent on developing a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile capable of reaching the mainland United States, defied global pressure Sunday with a test that failed immediately after launch.

From two continents, Pence and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis warned that North Korea's latest failed missile launch was a reckless act of provocation and assured allies in Asia that the US was ready to work to achieve a peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The two countries have long had a strained relationship, and this is far from the first time North Korea has threatened the USA with nuclear weapons.

Three fleets provides the firepower the Allies need to restrain North Korea.

Trump, in Washington, and Pence at the tense Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea earlier, have signalled a forceful US stance on North Korea's recent actions and threats.

United Nations diplomats said the proposed statement of condemnation had consensus from the other 14 Council members, including China, North Korea's biggest ally and a Council permanent member. If that were to happen, neighboring South Korea and Japan likely would be in danger of retaliation, according to the Times. North Korea is already capable of threatening South Korea and Japan.

North Korea will continue to test missiles on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis, Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol said. Kim Jong-un, the current Supreme Leader of North Korea, stepped into the role in 2011. Last week, it used its veto power to block an attempt to condemn the killing of dozens of people in a suspected Syrian chemical attack.

He said that an "all-out war" would result if the United States took military action.

North Korea has till now shown no sign of abandoning or toning down its programme.

Another official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss an intelligence matter, said the missile was a Scud variant that the US calls a KN-17.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday told a parliamentary session that diplomatic efforts were "important to maintain peace", but "dialogue for the sake of having dialogue is meaningless".
