Mike Pence fires a fresh warning to North Korea

The US will counter any North Korean attack with an

"overwhelming and effective" response, Vice President Mike Pence has said. He sounded the warning on Wednesday from the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, docked in Yokosuka, Japan. Pence is in the region to reassure US allies unnerved by North Korea's ongoing missile programme, and its apparent readiness to carry out another banned nuclear test in its quest to develop an atomic weapon that can hit the US mainland. Pence, whose Asia visit started in South Korea on Sunday, just hours after the reportedly failed launch by North Korea of what analysts said could have been a new missile, said the threat from North Korea was growing.
