Vice President Mike Pence sent another clear warning to North Korea on Wednesday, telling personnel aboard a Japan-based U.S. aircraft carrier that “all options are on the table” when dealing with the Stalinist regime.
Pence said the U.S. would work with allies and others in the region to apply diplomatic and economic pressure on the regime in Pyongyang until it abandons its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
“But as all of you know,” he continued, “readiness is the key, and you – the instruments of American policy – should know, all options are on the table.”
North Korea will never beg for peace, but will take “the toughest counteractions against the provocateur” and hold the U.S. “wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences [of] its outrageous actions.”
“The United States introduced in South Korea – the Korean peninsula, the world’s biggest hotspot – the huge nuclear strategic asset, seriously stretching the peace and security of the peninsula, and pushing the situation there to the brink of war,” Kim said.
“It has been creating a dangerous situation in which thermonuclear war may break out at any moment on the peninsula, and pose a serious threat to world peace and security, to say nothing of those in north-east Asia.”
